Only eight soccer competitions are taking place today. Of those, only six are among the top flight in their nation. One is a Cup tournament, another is a Turkish lower league. Then there is Nepal. Not so odd is that those other nations are all predominantly Muslim. Nepal isn't but they are playing today. In the only national friendly the UAE beat Yemen two-nil.
What's that have to do with you? Nothing.
Consider this an open thread to share you joys, your news, your opinions.
We'll be back with more soccer content tomorrow. We'll have the next player in our 2012 profile/capsules with number 19, a belated holiday addition of Major Link Soccer and some things this week that only make sense in the offseason.
I'll open the discussion by asking this - do you want a 2013 scarf from SaH, or something different? Maybe a hat, or a hoodie, or what?
