  Ding Dong the witch is dead...
Yeah, I haven’t posted much lately, but with the news about Sampson being relieved of his duties at the HDC, I had to find some time.

Bottom line is, Sampson had lost whatever plot he’d found last fall. There’s no doubt in my mind now that LA won the double in spite of Sampson, not because of Sampson.

Now, the news that former Tractor Boy Frank Yallop is heading back to Cali--and more importantly, to lead LA--makes this week even better…heck the best week I’ve had since LA completed the double.

I’ve been saying that LA needs a coach who has played in the league, now we finally have one. Heck, now I won’t mind staying up until midnight tomorrow to watch the LA derby.

The other big news right now is all the build up to the World Cup. To be honest, I can’t believe how well ABC/ESPN is covering things. You’d think they might have just spent a few million on the rights to some future events or something. I mean, those nightly reports from the US Camp and no snide comments about the sport. No smirks when doing the intro to a piece on racism in the sport. Just straight reporting. How refreshing is that?

Oh, and one of my pet peeves (though they are quickly decreasing in number) about MLS is that they continue to play during the World Cup. Well, that may be a thing of the past as well. At this rate, I soon won't have anything to complain about.
