After Jurgen Klinsmann's success in the World Cup, club teams were bound to come calling. But while Aston Villa is in some dire need of leadership, Klinsmann reportedly isn't interested.

Being President of FIFA is like being part of American Congress: Your approval rate sucks, but you get re-elected anyway. And Sepp Blatter has the re-election part nailed.

Cuauhtemoc Blanco is entering into politics with the intent to counter intense violence. Maybe he can flop his way to a safer planet.
