Wow.. Bob Bradley must absolutely hate Ghana by now. Egypt lost 6-1 to them in the first leg of their playoff.

Mexico is down 2-1 to Costa Rica. USA is down 2-1 to Panama. As of this minute, Mexico is out. Talk about dramatic!

I've never felt so conflicted about my team winning a game before in my life. On the one hand, USA won. On the other hand, we gave our biggest rival a second chance, and passed up the chance for 4 years of lulz at their expense. Oh well, Mexico is so bad I could see them losing the playoff with New Zealand.

Worth it.

Someone took the time to translate the ranting going on there for me:

Quote:
“GOOOOAAAAAAL The US of A PUTS us in the playoffs!!!!!” USA!
“It is because of the USA that we are being placed in the playoff …BECAUSE OF THEM , NOT DUE TO YOU..NOT ANY OF YOU in the green shirts ….IT WAS THEM!!.NOT YOU!..THEY DID IT!!!!!NOT YOU! remember this forever….. KEEP THIS CLEARLY IN MIND FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIVES! You do NOTHING for the shirt, you do NOT put the effort, you have NOTplaced us in the playoffs , you HAVE NOT placed us in the WORLD CUP ..YOU WOULD NOT HAVE KEPT US ALIVE….IT WAS ESTADOS UNIDOS, NOT YOU.! .NOT YOU AND YOUR ARROGANCE/CONCEIT…..NOT YOU AND YOUR INFAMY….NOT YOU AND YOUR MORONS/PUNKS….
….
“IT IS A FAILURE…..and UNDESERVED -to go through to the playoff- WE HAD NO ARGUMENTS to earn the playoffs, THE USA, WITH SUBS , WITH MANY SUBS as the visiting team shows us once again what the USA is all about ….how to play the game with dignity, how to approach the sport..MExico is a horror, just terrible….A FAILURE….
……
THE USA HAS SURPASSED US ..They are better than Mexico in SOCCER ….THEY EVEN HAVE THE LUXURY OF PLAYING THEIR SUBS and KEEPING US LIVE…. I hope our coach wears the pants and resigns..He has failed as coach….”

It's officially, official (95% officially official)

Quote:
An 18,000-seat soccer stadium will soon be part of downtown Orlando's landscape home to what promises to be the city's second major-league sports franchise.

In a raucous celebration, a crowd of more than 200 people chanted, "We are going MLS!" as soon as Orange County commissioners voted 5-2 Tuesday night to pitch in $20 million in tourist taxes as the county's share of the $84 million stadium.
...

Quote:
The Orlando City Soccer Club has been in discussions with MLS executives, who said a new franchise would come here if a soccer-specific stadium were built. With Tuesday's vote, that announcement should come soon, Soccer Club President Phil Rawlins said.

"The [MLS] ownership group has signed off on it," Rawlins said. "We're looking at a four- to six-week window to get the documentation finished up, to get a franchise agreement finalized and for an announcement to be made."

After MLS awards a franchise, only one obstacle would remain before construction starts: the land. Most of the property already has been bought, but city officials have filed condemnation actions in court to acquire two holdout lots.

I am so excited for this. Hopefully Sunsports/FS-FL offers them a good package to broadcast the games instead of Comcast getting them.

Someone help me out with UEFA soccer.

My understanding was that the winners of a league then qualifies for the Champions League (2-3 teams from each league I believe). But, I keep seeing things for the Champions League right now during the Premier League season. Is it that if you qualified during last season, you then enter the Champions League which takes place in conjunction with your normal league schedule, meaning you are playing double the matches?
