On Futbol!

On the day when "Becks" will become more than the name of an imported beer to Americans (or so Alexi Lalas hopes), I thought I'd pay at least some homage to some local boys, the Harrisburg City Islanders, who knocked off MLS powerhouse D.C. United on Wednesday night to reach the quarterfinals of the US Open Cup, which is a nationwide competition open to all amateur and pro soccer teams. This is huge! Now the Islanders move on to play the New England Revolution in Foxboro- my love of the underdog will have to trump my New England roots on this one, and I'll definitely be pulling for Harrisburg! Hopefully I can find a TV with Fox Soccer Channel somewhere in the midwest. :)
