Soccer birthdays:

Big Important Stories of the Day:

Could be something out of England, where referee Mark Clattenburg is being urged in some corners to sue Chelsea after being cleared of racially abusing John Obi Mikel. Clattenburg may be inclined to do so; he does not sound a bit happy about any of this – nor should he be.

RASNoD (Random American Soccer Name of the Day:  Lori Chalupny

*Ahead on the blog today:

Have you seen where none other than Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes the  English Premier League should adopt a schedule closer to – wait  for it – Major League Soccer. How about that! We’ll dig in a little.

Twitter daps:


What you should watch on TV today:

    I have been following soccer since the US hosted the mens world cup. As the viewing choices increased my passion for it did also. But I still love my football! Both are great games!!

    Speaking of which……GO BIG RED!! Beat Iowa!!
