Me and a buddy are going to spring training next week. We're staying in Tampa, but will be going to Fort Myers, Lakeland and Kissimmee.
Prefer places with good beer, average (or better) food. If there's something across the bay in Clearwater/St. Pete, etc. that is worth while - that's fine, too....
| Pelicans Talk|| All Star Merch on Clearance at "adidas In The Quarter" - Sheep on 2/22/14 at 7:52 pm|
This was a temporary store set up by adidas for the AS Game.
Everything is 60% off MSRP. I think the last day is tomorrow (2/23).
They have EVERYTHING - even a few AD jerseys.
Mrs. Sheep was NOT impressed on what I walked out of there with. :lol:

MLS changed the fantasy game. It now mirrors the EPL fantasy game, so it should be easier for everyone to figure out.

Any ideas, whether stat-based or content based, are welcome.

Per US Soccer's facebook page, FIFA has moved kickoff of the game in Manaus, because of the heat. A quick glance at the schedule, it looks like they moved all of the Manaus games to evening kickoffs.

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Lost Rodgers: Help with a trade proposal - Sheep on 11/8/13 at 5:17 pm|
I lost Aaron Rodgers. I signed Eli, but he sucks.
I have Welker, and decent WR depth (T. Smith, Garcon, Allen, D. Moore, Douglas) behind him.
I was offered Foles and Mike James for Welker.
My RBs aren't great (TRich, MJD, R. Bush).
Do I do this deal?...

Stealing liberally from the article on MLSSoccer.com:
Grant Wahl reporting that US will play Austria on 11/19.
