Countdown to the Cascadia Summit and some other links

timbers ad.jpgI saw this picture on the Portland Timbers’ Facebook page the other day. Does anyone seriously doubt that this will be the best rivalry in MLS? (Though, to be fair, the dude with the chainsaw has no apparent connection to the Timbers…)

The first taste of the rivalry renewed comes in three days at the Cascadia Summit at Starfire.

Should be fun. Now to some other MLS links:

— This is a little old but certainly worth a read: Brian Straus of the (now defunct? under new ownership?) FanHouse had an exclusive chat with commissioner Don Garber. Elsewhere, here’s a video on Garber’s visit to Vancouver.

— Here a writer skewers David Beckham for his contributions to the league so far. Goal.com has a humorous satirical sit-down with MLS and the FOX Soccer Channel.

— And be sure to look at this: a profile of Sounders FC Insider Matt Gaschk. Gotta love it, and this chat with Kasey Keller. More after the jump.

— Internationally, can you believe Chelsea’s Ashley Cole shot an intern with a high-powered air rifle?

— Hopefully a photo mosiac of Ryan Giggs is still up on the Guardian website by the time you read this. He signed a new deal with Manchester United, so it’s more of the same there. With Arsenal losing out on a trophy, in heartbreaking fashion too, it’s more of the same for the Gunners as well.

— Word is CONCACAF will be getting more love in World Cup berths. Also the U.S. U-17s scored a dramatic win over Canada in the championship. Don’t forget yesterday marked the 10-year anniversary over the original dos-a-cero win over Mexico.

— And, just because, a video of a ridiculously ridiculous trainer to close…
