Uh, so I had planned to write this update in the morning, before news of the Trademark battle between F.C. Internazionale and Inter Miami went public. And then I had to take off for Sounders practice. Then I had a doctor appointment for my shoulder (it ain’t great, […]
Now that spring is here, I decided to head out to the backyard and have a little chat, talking about all of the Inter Miami news over the last week. With the nicer weather, I hope to be out in my backyard doing more chats. Check it out!
I need that Final Fantasy VII fanfare. Phase One of #KetoLife is finally done! I started this journey back in November right before Thanksgiving, and I was absolutely thrilled today to see the scale NOT tip over 200 for the first time in, well, quite a long time. […]
Well, I managed to survive the Sounders Media Match. For those who don’t know anything about my athletic career (and that’s all of you except my family/friends): I stopped playing soccer in 9th grade, at which point I moved over to the American football (like most kids in […]
Well! I touched back down in Seattle yesterday morning, fresh off a week in Arizona. The trip started off a bit conspicuously; for those of you who don’t keep up with weather patterns across the country, Seattle was in the midst of a once-in-a-generation snow storm. Seriously, I […]
It’s been an interesting time here at the US Soccer AGM. I’ve gotten a lot of great information, and gotten to know a few people as well. Working on a big summary of the event, which will hopefully be up here by Monday at the latest. As you […]
So I’ve been doing the Keto diet since right before Thanksgiving (and let me tell you, passing up on my parents’ Mac & Cheese and stuffing wasn’t my idea of a proper holiday feast), and I’m pretty happy with the progress thus far. I didn’t weigh myself for […]
Happy New Years knuckleheads! Thanks to Brandy and Beth for making it a great time here at Ocean Shores. Only lost $10 at the casino, which I call a win. I don’t have anything else to add really. Hope 2019 is a great year for you all.
Wow, it’s been a crazy year for me personally. Started out a year ago tweeting about lawsuits and writing stories on Reddit. Then I wrote a couple of features for SounderAtHeart. In February, I started a blog covering all things legal soccer in the U.S., with a side […]
Here is an odd-but-fun anniversary. Exactly one year ago today, I tweeted out my first comments on the NASL suit against (then) USSF. From then, I’d go on to cover the case, writing a story for Sounder at Heart and appearing on a couple of Podcasts to explain […]
Become a Patron: Note: I covered some of the following in my Periscope after the hearing. Well. I’m home back in Seattle after something of a whirlwind four-day trip to Ohio to check out Columbus and cover the Motion to Dismiss hearing. I was hoping to do […]
Peace out Columbus! As I said on Twitter: Never fly to Chicago on United. Flight debacles notwithstanding, I had a great time in Columbus the last four days; thanks to everyone who showed me around. It was nice to put faces to Twitter/Reddit/BigSoccer names. On the way to […]
Whew! After a 12-hour ordeal, I finally got into Columbus around 1:00 p.m. local time Sunday. I checked into to my room; thanks to German Village B&B for the set up. I’m staying in the German Village (‘natch) which is located right on the edge of Downtown Columbus. It’s a […]
Dearest, After a long trek, I have finally made it. I made a questionable decision riding the public transport at this late hour. Though the trip was mercifully short, the men of questionable character (and hygiene) made for an arduous journey. Unfortunately, morale is low here. The […]
I’m on Munchkin duty all week, so limited writing from me. If you’ve been following along on Twitter, I’m going to try to write a story on the take from Alexi Lalas on the Columbus Crew accepting a USL team as a penance of sorts from PSV/MLS. But […]
As it says in the headline: Thrilled to announce that I will be joining The Athletic as a contributor. My focus will be mainly on the legal issues throughout U.S. Soccer, both national (NASL/USSF/MLS) and local (SaveTheCrew), although most of these issues affect soccer on a national level […]
Been a busy week, and out here we’ve got the Cascadia Derby tomorrow afternoon. Tonight, I relax.
Ah, the end of vacation. It always brings a sense of dread to get back to the routine. Except when you’re coming back from Las Vegas that is. The difference between a trip to Sin City and say, camping (aside from the prevalence of the cosmetically enhanced), is […]
No, it’s not just the title of a terrible Chevy Chase movie (seriously, what was he thinking). I’m off for a fun little jaunt to Las Vegas for a long weekend. Drinks, bets and questionable behavior are all on the menu. The Sounders 2 are taking on the […]
Well, the weekend is finally here, and looks like we won’t be having any last-minute legal issues to deal with. Hopefully everyone is able to enjoy their weekend watching soccer or hanging out with the fam and/or friends. If you’re traveling, or would like something to listen to, […]
