The US earned their fifth Gold Cup championship this weekend with a one-nil victory over Panama in Chicago. Unfortunately, Stuart Holden's injury appears to be potentially serious.

Bob Bradley came on The Daily Show last Thursday to talk about his experiences coaching the Egyptian National Team.

Servando Carrasco didn't get the start last night in the 2-1 win against Chivas, but his play with Osvaldo Alonso has earned him more attention.

Detroit, money issues aside, has suddenly made itself a focal point for additional MLS expansion. There may be good reason; Even without a USL or NASL side, Detroit's hardcore soccer supporters find a way to make some noise.

Building a 25,000 seater in Detroit would be great, but it appears to actually be happening at Buzzard Point in the Nation's capital. Finally locking down DC United's stadium situation would end a black mark for MLS' most storied club.

We write about a lot of negative crap on the Major Link Soccer. At least I do. Sometimes though, there's a good positive story to write about, like the one out of New England this weekend. Playing at RFK Stadium in the other Washington, Kevin Alston took the field off the bench, playing for the first time since being diagnosed with Leukemia in April. That's a heck of a turnaround for the young DC product.
