U.S. Soccer celebrates 100 years (Friday links)

Here’s an interesting tweet from a media event today in New York celebrating U.S. Soccer’s centennial. That’s right. The federation has been around for 100 years exactly.

The Guardian has this impressive piece with a lot of interviews on the celebration.

Let’s get to some links:

— Did you see Soccer By Ives honored Sounders FC defender DeAndre Yedlin as its Rookie of the Month? The Seattle native was also a guest on the website’s podcast.

— KJR and Sounder at Heart will have a podcast going this season. This, I believe, is the first installment.

— Here’s a recent piece from abroad on Osvaldo Alonso.

— Around MLS, Vancouver is working on improving ticket sales, one writer thinks it’s time for Herculez Gomez to come back, and apparently Totti is the latest player to be linked to the league.

— Colorado has been in this news with this semi-entertaining video making fun of Real Salt Lake leading into a rivalry game, plus midfielder Kevin Harbottle will be out several weeks with a knee injury, and the team is in a battle to get an up-and-comer from Cameroon in Charles Eloundou.

— CONCACAF made some recent changes to the Gold Cup, and MLSsoccer.com has a summary of the news.
