    Less money, decreased popularity and the level of competition are just a few things preventing many of the world’s elite soccer players from taking the trip across the Atlantic to play in the MLS.  I am going to assume that the sudden rise in gruesome leg-breaking tackles isn’t helping the North American soccer league’s cause […]

    The only thing that was missing here was the end of game dramatics that equally odd plays at Oil City, Mount Mansfield and John Glenn had previously provided during this year’s high school football season.
