1. Can 2011 get here quick? In case you missed it, the Seattle Sounders/Portland Timbers U.S. Open Cup game was an outlier for a couple reasons, namely people actually were excited for an Open Cup game. Just check out some of the stuff on Portland message board. Great stuff, aside from the guy in the Green Man suit. Hope this kind of stuff doesn't scare Don Garber.
And big thanks for my pal Richard for sending me a couple pics from the match. I will restrain myself from posting a bedsheet with a picture of a rifle stating, "Keller Do the Cobain." Poor taste.
I will, however, post something from some traveling San Jose ultras -- Man Boobs FC -- featuring Drew Carey, Paul Allen, and Sigi Schdmid.
2. And speaking of man boobs ... Fashion is one of my least favorite things in the world, but this year's crop of Premier League kits are tragically awful. Brutal. Whoever designed the Everton and Manchester United home shirts must be from the near future or something. Horrendous.
Have a good Fourth. Enjoy Michael Owen at Old Trafford (trying not to laugh).
