DC United is the closest MLS team to me in Florida, sadly enough. I had to report on my "local" team. Wish I knew which player tried to clobber me with the ball at the end.

Yet another thing that is effed up about MLS. They play in the summer while most other leagues are on break. I often hear the excuse is "who would want to play in Chicago in December?" I don't follow MLS so i had no clue that DC United was the closest team to a person in Florida. It seems that the solution now is simple. Close down the Chicao Fire (and all the other northern teams) and play in the south during the normal footie season.

rcade, you wouldn't be the first to hit by a ball.

Harry and Jose both took one for the team. Hughes had better control.

Cricket's the game where, as a reporter, you want to avoid getting hit in the head by the ball.

Of course, it's still more likely to happen when you're actually playing.

There's talk that Florida will get an MLS team in Miami, and we're supposed to be getting a soccer stadium in Orlando that's big enough to host a team. So maybe I won't have to make a 13-hour road trip to attend home games for my team much longer (not that I'm making them now, mind you).

Barcelona FC is bidding along with a rich South American to put a team in Miami, they are one of five finalists (Portland, St. Louis, Vancouver and Montreal are the others, I think) for two expansion slots for the 2011 season. However at the recent Barca general meeting, there was some disgruntled quesioning about spending the money on this effort when times are hard.
