The usual Gus Johnson excitement is present, but doing a respectable job so far.With Celtic getting crushed yesterday, my rooting interests are now out or never made it to begin with. Looking for the usuals to advance, but this match is intriguing, especially for the round of 16.

My daughter is 8- she played in a youth soccer league the last 2 summers, she liked it but the only instruction she got was "Kick it toward there, don't let it go in there." This past December we enrolled her in a local soccer academy- lack of a better word, does soccer three times a week and is actually getting instruction on alignment, footwork skills, passing, etc...We rolled the dice because she was behind the 8-ball so to speak and there are some hard core kids/parents, not sure how she would respond, but she is holding her own, the only girl in her age group. The coaches are passionate about the game and are passing it off on the kids.

Man U up 2-0 20' in and Chelsea dominates the 2nd half to get even.They have to do it all again in next ten days to see who moves on to FA Cup semis against Man City.Just excellent soccer to watch, especially seeing Man U literally dominated in 2nd half and Chelsea just missing winning chances in last couple minutes.My soccer addiction grows daily. Even watched AV and Reading Saturday morning for relegation purposes. Unfortunately AV won a huge match in that regard. Shit, I'm even to the point where Scottish Premier League and MLS (if it's in Seattle, Portland or KC) are must watch.And incidentally, USWNT down 1-0 to SWE right now in Algrave Cup. SWE scored in 4th minute on some wind-blown bomb. US down two GKs as well with Solo and Barnhart out with injuries requiring surgery.

That was once of the ugliest sporting events I've ever watched and I watched Julian Tavares pitch. 33 fouls, 7 yellow cards, NO GOALS, lots of dirty play, and Hulse unforgivably missed for Millwall 2 feet out from a great cross. Pathetic. How 'bout Liverpool Rising? After a terrible start, they're now sitting in 6th with a realistic chance at 4th and a great shot for Europa qualification given the rest of their schedule. Chelsea looked possessed in the 2nd half but their play has been up and down. Bale is the only thing going for Spurs and are in the opposite direction of Pool. Pool is only down 2 pts to Arsenal so they can definitely make up the gap. The last 2 months are going to be fantastic football to watch.
