Ohio State heads to the national championships!: You've called us boring. You've called us lucky. But we're also undefeated and heading to the Fiesta Bowl. A classic OSU vs. Michigan match up came down to the final second today.

MLS Players to form union? : Failing to secure a court appeal for their class action lawsuit against the league, some MLS players are now talking about forming a player's union to collectively bargain about salaries, transfer rights, and other hot topics. Will this help or destroy the league's chances of becoming successful?

The English Premier League: begins today! The link is a great preview of the upcoming season and each team. If you're in America and have Fox Sports World set those Tivos to "Premiership Soccer" to get the games. This is the year I pick my team (instead of lazily following Arsenal), any advice?

Montreal wins the Grey Cup.

Yeah Fox Sports World shows CFL games in the US. I haven't gotten a chance to catch any of them yet though. Do the rules differ significantly from American Football?

Welcome to the alternate universe. Up is down and down is up. The madness just never stops - thank you parity. I think this is the biggest NFL story of the year. Is everyone going to be 8-8 at the end of the year? Ok, everyone besides the Bengals?

So are we doing the (more inside) way or what? The NFL post today took up the entire front page for me. I don't care either way we do it, let's just get somewhat uniform.

The MLS expanded the season length to 30 games in 2003. The first match will be the LA Galaxy visiting the Columbus Crew on April 5th. In a nice sign of the expansion of the league, the game will be broadcast live nationally on ABC. Meanwhile Chicago Fire star Demarcus Beasley underwent successful arthroscopic knee surgery. He's expected to be recovered by opening day. The US Men's National Team emerged victorious in a 2-0 friendly against El Salvador. Clint Mathis captained the team. "On the field I'm more like my father. I'm just so competitive, I can't help myself -- I'm a dick." says our boy Clint. Finally Grant Wahl's SI column details his picks for the 2006 Cup Team. A bit early to predict, isn't it?

Ohio State heads to the national championships!

First the Crew wins the US Open Cup, then the Buckeyes head to the national championships. What's next, the Bluejackets have a winning season? Ok.. maybe I'm a bit too elated. Off to celebrate!

Excellent excellent post!

I'll do MLS on Sundays so we can recap the saturday games and prepare for the wednesday matches. Should I include US Men's National Team news in there, or is that out of scope do you think?

The silly season.

As an Indians fan, I know I have a couple of years of rebuilding ahead of me. But that should be interesting, right? Right? Oh hell...

I'd like to do the MLS once the season starts up again.

posted by elsoltano at 02:55 PM on November 14, 2002

I like the idea also. I agree with corpse, I just want to talk about sports.

You make your changes, then you watch them payoff...what else is there to do? Watch the games :( I haven't seen a single game in a month unfortunately.

Ugh, I'm at sauril level of activity at this point. A crazy project at work is taking up all my time for the past 3 weeks, but it will luckily end soon. But will it be in time to be able to catch starfucker?

I'd be interested in a pay league also if it had better features and quick updates. Yahoo is getting very annoying!
