Monday Morning Center Back

Did I not post all week? I’m slipping. Sorry. Saturday Harpo’s FC 2 (Campbell 60′, Wheeler 70′) – Kansas City Athetics 0 You know how people say about the Open Cup, “You could have a beer league team make it…

DDC Wrap Up

Thanks to Nicholas Murray, who sent me this complete list of PDL players who were picked yesterday. Note that any PDL experience was noted by Murray (that’s why some have multiple teams). I put teams in bold if the player…

Monday Morning Center Back

I was going to do these snarky game summaries every week, but I found that I didn’t always have the time. Eh. I’m giving this feature a new name, ’cause it’s my blog and I can. As usual, MLS matches…

Tedski’s Weekend Wrap-up, Week 2

Okay, I’m including midweek CCL games, so sue me. A couple of these have two sentence summaries. I’m stretching things. Tuesday San Jose Earthquakes 1 (Gordon 90’+) – Deportivo Toluca FC 1 (Nava 67′) Apparently, Alan Gordon only needed seventeen…
