  • Single-Digit Soccer: Give U10 travel the boot Tomorrow, I’ll coach my U8s for the last time. They’re a wonderful team, most of whom I’ve coached off and on for the past two years (four seasons). Next year, we move up from concurrent small-sided games of 4-on-4 to the bigger fields with 7-on-7. We’ll have goalkeepers and refs. What we won’t have will be a couple of ...
  • The indoor soccer wars, part 3,785 Imagine if, in 2002, five MLS teams had broken away from the league to seek a stronger future in the A-League. That’s roughly what we’re seeing now in the latest twist of indoor soccer, which had a fractious history in its heyday and continues to have as many views on the way forward as it has ...
  • Borislow: Let’s reiterate a deal On Jan. 18, I reported the following: Women’s Professional Soccer averted another court date with magicJack owner Dan Borislow on Wednesday, reaching a deal that allows his team to play an exhibition schedule in 2012 and 2013. Borislow said he has put his temporary injunction suit on hold; the suit was intended to stop the termination ...
  • Midweek Myriad: Free-lance assignments, household emergencies and being yelled at by a couple of Red Bulls fans have taken up much of my time this week, but there’s still plenty to round up while I enjoy my first home HD soccer viewing. (NOW I can’t wait for the World Cup.) – MLS: Four midweek games tonight, with D.C. ...
  • Friday Myriad: Diamond debut, four soccer trophies on the line Your hour-by-hour viewing guide, all times ET: FRIDAY Noon: Track and field, Diamond League, Doha. Debut of the expanded successor to the Golden League. I’ll be live-blogging this one. Universal Sports 2:40 p.m.: Soccer (England), League One semifinal, Swindon-Charlton. Special feelings for me regarding Swindon, the only place I’ve ever seen an English game in person. Plenty more ...
  • Not indoor soccer, not Bruce Arena — it’s ARENA soccer Writers use Game of Thrones to explain everything these days. I don’t have HBO, so maybe someone can explain Game of Thrones to me in terms of indoor soccer history. Is the Stark family the equivalent of the MISL? Is “Lord Littlefinger” Tatu? When we last left the Indoor Soccer Wars, the MISL had a new plan for moving forward ...
  • AmWoSo (W-League, WPSL) Power Rankings and playoff picture: July 16 It’s playoff time, and we’ve already seen some good teams’ seasons end — the W-League’s Atlanta Silverbacks, New Jersey Wildcats and Colorado Rush; the WPSL’s Beach FC and Maryland Capitols. The WPSL Elite has one more week of the regular season, but the four pro teams are already in the playoffs. The regular-season title may come down ...
  • Midweek Myriad: PanPac swimming, Diamond League finals Yes, I’m spending some time away from the computer this week. Coincidentally, I’m pondering a remake of SportsMyriad.com. The experimental phase should be at an end soon; the question is what follows. This is an unusually busy midweek for Myriad sports — CONCACAF Champions League group stage games, UEFA Champions League playoffs featuring teams you might ...
  • Single-Digit Soccer: The parity problem Sports are inherently meritocracies. At some point, you simply can’t make every player equal. When I scan the U8 league for the season ahead, I see quite a mixture. A lot of kids have been playing indoor soccer together in the winter. Then you have the kids with everything ranging from a general indifference about soccer ...
  • Monday Myriad: Feb. 4 Yes, this will be more of an evening thing from now on. The week’s headlines: – Jose Aldo defended his UFC featherweight title as Frankie Edgar suffered yet another close decision loss. The rest of the UFC 156 card scrambled the title chases in ways I’m still working out. Rashad Evans was supposed to fight for the ...
