I think I'm most curious to see who will start tonight. Lets discuss that.

No we're not talking Miguel Ibarra, who will likely get sold to a Mexican team before long. We're discussing Christian Ramirez, a player who I really was hoping more MLS teams would take a run at this preseason. Well, that is off now since he will likely require a decent transfer fee.

Fox and Univision get 2026 World Cup TV rights | FIFA press

I think this has more to do with something brewing in the 2022 side of things than anything else. I heard reports yesterday evening that there may have been causes in the TV deals that allowed Fox and Univision to get the 2026 WCs if something changes to the 2022 WC. We'll see.

Alright, that is all for now, what do you folks have going on this morning?
