re: MLS in New Orleans, the logistics of it - RedPop4
Lucky, I agree with you on most of your post. I've been to Jester's matches, it's flippin' hot and humid even at 7:00 p.m. IF MLS adopted the "rest-of-the-world" football schedule it might be bearable, but April to November? Would be difficult. The Jesters draw about 1,000 people per match, or ...

re: Videos from the 1994 World Cup - RedPop4
It really is a good CD, I have it, as well. I went to both those games in Dallas, that Brazil v. Netherlands quarterfinal was a World Cup game for the ages. All goals after the 70th minute. Got to see Klinsi score, right in our end of the stadium on a wonderful volley. That was against South K...

re: Kaare Johnson Show 990am WGSO - RedPop4
I haven't listened to Kaare in 6 years, and I ain't about to start, again. He went into the tank for Obama in October of 2008, and anyone who disagreed was stupid. "I have conserrrrrrrrvative friends, but not right wing extremists like the rest of the Republicans...." Anyone who has to reassure h...

re: Fan Thread: Why are you a fan? - RedPop4
Long story. tl;dr Liked the sport as a kid in the 70s, but never played, just watched on TV (Soccer Made in Germany on PBS) Then came World Cup 1982 with the Azzuri winning. Trip to Italy in 1984, climbed the fence into the Stadio Bentegodí in Verona to see Hellas. Been wanting them to win ev...

[quote]I love the decision because it means I'll probably go more often but I tend to agree. I guess it's not a cigar bar anymore. They should open a smaller cigar bar nearby.

re: How to get tickets to a Fulham home match? 3/1 v. Chelsea - RedPop4

As a full-time librarian at a graduate level educational institution, I'm gratified to see the many of you articulate the reasons why libraries are, indeed, still useful, needed, and desired.

re: Notre Dame announces $400M stadium expansion - RedPop4
This is sort of the trend in Europe, too. Of course that's at the professional level and they're adding office blocks, shopping malls and hotels to their stadia. Anyone who doesn't is "missing out on revenue streams" or "out dated" etc. as these areas are open even when the stadium has no event....

We're going down, unless this Greek striker can score like he does at Olympiakos. Poor Mark Hughes, was decent at Fulham, but left because FFC has "no ambition" so he goes to QPHaHa and gets the sack, now to Stoke where he's in the shite like Fulham is (we weren't when he left.) ...

I almost always give reasons for things I don't like. But I can't even begin to come up with reasons for despising most of these. I actually like the Azzuri, and hate to say it, les Bleus.
