https://youtube.com/watch?v=Il9h-GRJwr0

In a link dump recently I passed along that Sports Illustrated senior writer Grant Wahl was semi-seriously running to become FIFA’s next president. His “campaign” is starting to get noticed internationally.

Be sure to check out the video interview above and stories here and here.

You gotta love it. Here are some other links:

— A couple Sounders provided some injury updates to Goal.com and Sounders FC director of youth development Darren Sawatzky provided some insight on this MLS vs. non-MLS academy story on the same site.

— Some MLS notes: sounds like De-Ro is happy in Toronto, here’s a look at possible expansion to Las Vegas and Vancouver is starting to market hard.

Special1 TV continues to crack me up everytime, don’t miss this Q&A with Eric Cantona, Freddy Adu was involved in a good way in a big win in Turkey and here’s all the Gold Cup info you need.
