According to Olimpia owner Jose Rafael Ferrari, the proceeds from Wednesday's match with the Sounders will go directly to the treatment of Chelato Ucles. Ulces was a former manager for both Olympia and the Honduran National Team.

Josh Ford is doing some good work for Ft. Lauderdale Strikers, recording his first shutout in a 2-0 win against F.C. Edmonton.

Represent.com has a pair of gorgeous Cascadia-themed t-shirts on sale, with profits going towards fighting the fires in Eastern Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia. Brad Evans already has his picked out.

The most important player for New York City FC hasn't been Frank Lampard, David Villa, or Andrea Pirlo; meet 23-year-old Kwadwo Poku. There wasn't much he could do about the 5-1 drubbing the LA Galaxy gave them, but his four goals and seven assists have kept the team's playoff dreams alive. The article reminds that the Sounders had a discovery claim on Poku, but he couldn't quite make the team during a midsummer trial.

  • Denies that FIFA has problems (HIS WHOLE JOB IS TO IDENTIFY FIFA'S PROBLEMS)
  • Dismisses the status of soccer in the United States with some racially/sexually-charged language.
