Sounder at Heart and I split up over a long distance relationship about five months ago, but the site made the mistake of not making a clean break and letting me hang around.

The US Men's National Team and their extended community needs to learn from our mistake; Bruce Arena has many pronounced strengths and weaknesses, but the knee-jerk reaction go compare everything he does to recently departed (not dead) Jurgen Klinsmann won't do him (or the squad) any good.

It's a big day for Washington residents who like to see a melon-sized ball go into a white net: The Gonzaga Bulldogs will play for the NCAA Men's Basketball National Championship today. Gonzaga can be the latest in a string of Washington State-based champions the last seven years.

I am required to clarify that I have not been paid in any form to tell you that there's so much excitement to be found in Spokane right now! Go be a tourist on the East side and REDISCOVER Spokane.

There were some impressive attendance numbers out of the USL this weekend, with over 8,000 in San Antonio and 11,569 for Sacramento Republic's victory over Orange County SC. Sammy Ochoa earned a brace in the game with two goals in the first 60 minutes.
