  • Single-Digit Soccer: The score is always 0-0 Perhaps Caddyshack was ahead of its time. Chevy Chase’s character just went out and played golf — very well. Score? Nah. Didn’t keep it. A lot of youth soccer leagues don’t keep score in the early ages — in our case, we don’t keep track until U9. And the travel leagues don’t keep standings until U11. (Oddly enough, ...
  • Single-Digit Soccer: Pelada and the love of the game A couple of seasons ago, when I gathered one of my youth teams for our first practice, I told them I had the best toy ever invented. Around the world, you could find people who have no concept of a Wii or an Xbox, but if you handed them this particular thing, they would be ...
  • Washington Spirit vs. FC Kansas City: Meet the new boss A promising performance against a talented team. A second-half setback. Then a controversial call late, with Diana Matheson stepping up to convert the penalty kick. That was the Washington Spirit’s April 20 game against Western New York. And it happened again last night against FC Kansas City. So in a sense, the Spirit has simply gotten back ...
  • MLS Cup: An experiment The idea is to cut the clutter. I’m not going to give you every shot, foul, etc. I’m going to give you the score, a sense of who has the better of the run of play (the more arrows, the more dominant the team is right now), and the key plays. Enjoy. Final score: 1-0 Galaxy. Share this:FacebookTwitterEmailPrintMoreTumblrGooglePinterestRedditStumbleUpon
  • MLS Week 9: East shifts back to Ohio Stories of the week: – Five road wins in seven games. (And no draws!) – The Red Bulls’ early lead in the East is gone, with the Crew emphatically taking control. A couple of injuries seem to have rattled the Red Bulls. – Last year’s MLS trophy winners, Columbus and Salt Lake, have won four straight. STANDINGS/LINEUPS/PERSONNEL INFO/ETC 1. Los ...
  • What’s up at SportsMyriad in 2013 When I left USA TODAY in 2010, I immediately embarked on two projects: 1. A book on The Ultimate Fighter. 2. This blog, SportsMyriad, with the intent to “flip the sports page inside-out.” Those projects were sidetracked a bit, in a good way. USA TODAY kept giving me a lot of freelance work, particularly in its new magazine division. ...
  • 20 alternatives to YSA Dear MLS Supporters Group, You may be a little upset that your club is getting more aggressive in its efforts to keep you from chanting “YOU SUCK, ASSHOLE!” every time the opposing keeper takes a goal kick. The argument has been going on for years, but commissioner Don Garber ratcheted up the rhetoric over the last ...
  • An instant classic at Old Trafford I’m just going to state for posterity what should be remembered about today’s Olympic semifinal, in which the U.S. women beat Canada by the odd goal in seven: Christine Sinclair is a brilliant player, and it’s nice to see her finally getting a worthy showcase, even in a loss. Fellow Portland alum Megan Rapinoe should now be alongside Abby Wambach, Hope ...
  • Throwing open the U.S. Open Cup It’s U.S. Open Cup season again, which means it’s also open season for Open Cup reform ideas and lamentations over its lack of popularity. Like England’s FA Cup, the U.S. Open Cup has a proud history that predates the formation of a viable national league. The biggest difference is that the USA’s viable national league — ...
  • MLS 2015-18: Future shock A couple of related topics on Jason Davis’ new-ish American Soccer Morning podcast over the past two weeks: – NBC has paid eleventy billion dollars to show 45,000 hours of Premier League coverage every week, starting this fall. – MLS, while doing well on the box office and sponsorship fronts, is struggling to stand out amid the four ...
