Ugh, 10:00AM is way too early for soccer. Many of you are probably used to waking up at the golden hour to watch some European footy, but some of us need our beauty sleep. Like beautiful people, or even mildly attractive people. If we see any of those, we'll need to let them lie.
Game of the Week
The Vancouver Whitecaps and San Jose Earthquakes will celebrate 40 years as they reenact their opening game Saturday. The first time these two teams (or at least their names) played each other was on May 5, 1974. Today, they''ll mark that anniversary with a Whitecaps win. When this game was played in the NASL days, the Earthquakes claimed victory 2-1 at Empire Stadium. But now the Earthquakes are just dreadful, whereas Vancouver actually has some semblance of an offense. San Jose is one of those teams who have been wholely outscored by Clint Dempsey. Vancouver has been shaky at times this season, their most complete performance coming in their 4-1 opening victory over the Red Bulls. Since then, they have been grinding out results with late goals. Darren Mattocks has played well, but Sebastian Fernandez and Pedro Morales have kept the engine going. Jon Busch will achieve his 1,000th career save during this game.
