Of course I and many of you have been aware of this event for some time, but Major League Soccer put out the word, officially, of the summit that will feature Commissioner Garber, Drew Carey, and most importantly, a lot of YOU.
Was speaking with Greg Roth who was not afraid to admit he reads this blog the other day and he gave me some background. I’m looking forward to stopping by to see what its all about and I thank him for the in person invitation. Looks like they’re going to talk OFFICIATING!
