THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY

The Good: Congrats to the New England Revolution for getting to MLS Cup for the 3rd time in their history. The last two times they’ve lost to LA Galaxy 1-0. Well, no Galaxy this time, so perhaps this is the year. I’m hoping if they win Mr. Kraft will spring for a new stadium and get them out of Foxboro forever. I had considered selling my tickets to the game when Dallas got knocked out, but I think I’ll go. Let’s face it, it’ll proabably be the last time we’ll see Clint Dempsey in an MLS uniform. And, I like the Revs better than any other team in the East, and seeing them win would assuage (a little) the pain of not seeing my own team there.

The Bad: The Rapids were unmasked for the overachieving, prima donna pretenders that they are. Enjoy your winter.

The Ugly: What is the story with this?

Ugliest Soccerball Ever

The English Premier League is actually using this as their winter “high visibility” ball. Did they lose a bet to someone at Nike?

    Regarding the Ugly. Clubs used to only employ non white balls for matches played with snow on the pitch. However someone at Nike mad a master stroke and convinced the Premier League that it would be a good idea to use Hi-Vis balls as a permanent fixture.

    Its a tough site to endure but the clubs and more importantly the supporters of English Premier League clubs have to from the end of British Summer Time in October until it begins again at the end of March. Either side of using the horrid Nike Total 90 Aerow II Hi-Vis they use the more traditional white ball with the same design.
