I won't get too far into last night's game other than how bad it was from start to finish.

When the line up cards came in, you knew it was going to be a long night for FCD.

A little 'Murica look to the scarf this month. To be honest, I feel like I have totally forgotten about this little thing each month since I haven't been able to order it online like last year.

MLS President releases statement on Minnesota stadium news | MLSSoccer.com

The delay continues for Minnesota, which now sees a July 1 deadline come and go on their stadium plans. This thing will still get done in some form or fashion before long. MLS wants this market and this ownership group, so they'll find a way to make it happen.

The folks in Minnesota share their take on the stadium news, or lack there of. Funny to think that MLS has been so adamant about getting stadium plans firm and in place before expansion can happen in other markets but they seemed to have slipped up on this one.

I hope they have some insurance on him after last night's Mexico game against Honduras. Still disappointed that FCD wasn't in the mix for him.

Bradley names US captain for Gold Cup | Fox Sports

A small passing of the torch but one that needed to happen given all that has gone on with Clint Dempsey over the last couple weeks. I'm more inclined to having a team captain either in the midfield or in the defense rather than a forward anyways.

This deal is happening and it should wrap up very soon. Heck, even NYCFC has worked on a profile page for the Italian star.

England knocked out in the most gut-wrenching fashion | SBnation.com

Not only was it a goal in stoppage time but it was an own goal that ended the tournament for the Lady Lions. That is just heartbreaking.

I've said all along in this tournament run for the US that I wanted to see them battle Japan again.
