A special Valentine to the most beautiful game

With Friday being Valentine's Day, my thoughts obviously turn to love.

We have many loves in our lives, whether it be our significant other, family, pets, friends and even sports.

Let's face it. I love soccer. I love the beautiful game. It will be forever in my blood.

Bradley joining Toronto is good for MLS, but is it good for Bradley and USMNT?

So, Michael Bradley is heading to Toronto FC, huh?

Well, that's certainly good for Toronto FC and certainly good for Major League Soccer.

But how good is that for Michael Bradley as a soccer player and the U.S. National Team, particularly heading into a World Cup year?

Getting ready for my personal MLS Cup No. 18

If there is one thing that I have learned in my 18 years of covering Major League Soccer, if it's MLS Cup, there's a good chance it will be in southern California.

Tico fans protest U.S. WCQ win when they should picket about Friday's game being at new stadium, not Saprissa

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica -- Man, talk about misdirected anger and wasted energy.

Tico soccer fans, still upset over the famous "Snow Bowl game" in Commerce City, Colo. In March, reportedly greeted the United States National Team's arrival at the airport at 6:15 CT with chants, jeers and some egg throwing at the team bus.

The fans chanted, "No Fair Play, USA."

OFFSIDE REMARKS
Lessons learned from WCQ home losses

The last time the United States lost a home World Cup qualifier, 911 had only one connotation.

The time before that, the U.S. hadn't qualified for the World Cup since 1950.

Will playing on grass in Seattle back fire on U.S. Soccer?

CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying predictions

Even in June, it's starting to become crunch time in the CONCACAF hexagonal.

The final round of World Cup qualifying matches already has reached the halfway point for two teams -- Mexico and Jamaica -- and their four rivals will join them in yet another round on Tuesday night.

OFFSIDE REMARKS
The weakest U.S. WCQ roster I can remember

I take a good look at the United States National Team roster and I am not impressed at all.

I have never been confused with Chicken Little, but I fear for the U.S. in its next two World Cup qualifiers -- against Costa Rica on Friday and at Mexico on Tuesday, March 26.

OFFSIDE REMARKS
For openers, it was an utterly forgettable performance

Time to panic? No -- at least not yet.

Time to be worry? Perhaps.

Time to be concerned. Well, yes.

OFFSIDE REMARKS
The good, bad and ugly of the CONCACAF hexagonal schedule

So, what is better, a favorable schedule at the start of World Cup qualifying, a smooth ride in the middle or a home cooking finish at home?

OFFSIDE REMARKS
Two sides of the scoreless tie

After watching Tuesday night's disappointing scoreless draw between the United States and Canada, I have two streams of thought about the National Team: long range and short term.

OFFSIDE REMARKS
The sad case of Freddy Adu

Over the past few decades, U.S. soccer (yes, that's a small s) has played out a familiar scenario whenever a young, promising male player emerges on the scene. More often than not, these players never meet our great hopes and expectations.

OFFSIDE REMARKS
These scenarios would be a perfect and happy homecomings for U.S. women in NWSL

Who says you can't go home again?

There is some buzz going around the many members of the Olympic gold-medal winning team want to play in the fledling National Women's Soccer League close to their hometowns

Blatter doesn't get it; It's evolution, not revolution for MLS

Obviously, Sepp Blatter doesn't understand American sports.

Rome wasn't built in a day and neither were any of the professional sports leagues, whether it was baseball, football, basketball and even hockey.

OFFSIDE REMARKS
Give Donovan some breathing space on his decision; he certainly has earned it

So, Landon Donovan is considering retirement and he doesn't know how long his decision will take.

Well, I say let the LA Galaxy player and U.S. international take his time to decide. He has earned it.

New Thanksgiving tradition: turkey, football and futbol

For as long as I know, Thanksgiving tradition has been about family, turkey and some football.


September 9, 2012
OFFSIDE REMARKS
No time to panic, but we can be worry warts with the U.S. team

It's certainly no time to panic, at least not yet. But it is certainly time to be concerned and even to worry.
