It was this afternoon, and before I bailed out early due to an unavoidable coughing spell, Softy from KJR and I talked about the playoffs and a couple of other things.
Good times. I’m really glad that KJR took a chance on a weekly soccer segment and I hope some of you liked what you heard from me this year, for those who tuned in. I thank you for doing so.
DC United sent this to me today.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (November 11, 2009) – Four former D.C. United players and former Head Coach Peter Nowak are up for induction into U.S. Soccer’s Hall of Fame. Marco Etcheverry, Raul Diaz Arce, Roy Lassiter, Earnie Stewart and Nowak are among the 24 retired professional players on the ballot who contributed to the growth of soccer in the U.S.
Voters in the player election include selected members of the media, Hall of Famers, past and present U.S. Men’s and Women’s National Team coaches, MLS and WPS coaches of four or more years tenure, and a select group of soccer administrators. The results will be announced in early 2010.
Just thought I’d share. Also sharing this from American Outlaws:
