Down to the Wire

There’s so much about MLS to complain about. A quick visit to the BigSoccer N&A board will bring some salient topics to mind. However, with such a meaningful game at hand Saturday night in Dallas, it truly is a shame that TV coverage can’t be pulled together for the match. Surely there’s a few grand sitting in Don Garber’s petty cash account to get three high-quality cameras to the Deep Dish for an internet video broadcast. Announcers aren’t even needed (many fans would welcome the change, I suspect.) Hopefully the Hoops will give life to the Metros' playoff aspirations by dispatching the Wiz, and hopefully the Metros won’t be too distracted by the, um, talents of Chivagirl Adriana (pictured) to deliver the Metro Nation into a two-match playoff series with New England. The Revs, on a 1-2-2 slide, may be vulnerable come playoff time.

Actually, there are massive attempts to the get video to the site except that the T-1 connection scheduled for the press box won't be in until closer to MLS Cup and right now they have only one DSL line for all their media and can't get another one for two weeks.

And they can't get cable installed because of an agreement with Verizon.

So frustrating. I'd don't know if you've noticed, but the "Official" Pizza Hut Park site hasn't been updated since...June 27th.

Right, which is why all these teams and fans bitch about their site not looking "individual enough" yet when they try to do it on their own they never do as good a job as we do.

Le sigh.

Do you realize that there is no one brand of MBT shoes out there that is best for every single runner? Every individual out there must get properly fitted in order to determine the best MBT shoe for them
