Microsoft held an event in Redmond revealing their new gaming console, the Xbox One. While much of the content is being withheld for the E3 trade show later this year, they did take the time to show off next year's EA sports games, including FIFA. It's hard to tell whether or not the visuals presented are pre rendered, or if there are any other improvements to the yearly franchise. The new machine may also have an impact on next year's sponsorship deal with the Sounders.

ugly terrible no good iconic pinstripes of the baseball team. It was apparently worth an article to debunk the rumor that David Beckham may be involved with NY2. Now that NY is settled, it appears that the three biggest competitors to get into the MLS game are all in the southeast. Finally, are you a City or Yankees fan who knows nothing about MLS? This article will do a... job... of introducing you.
