Happy Wednesday folks. Hopefully you are staying safe in these streets. Here’s what we got from yesterday:
Speaking of former candidates, one is officially staying in his current role:
23 players will head to Europe to join the United States Women’s National Team for a camp that culminates with a match against The Netherlands. Included on that roster: Washington Spirit players Aubrey Bledsoe and Ashley Hatch,
The EPL thinks it can have fans in the stands to watch games before Christmas. Seems ambitious given the current wave of the pandemic, but we’ll see if they do so.
Also, two-time USL Championship winners Louisville City also unveiled a new crest, which was better than the attempt they had last year that was eventually trashed due to negative feedback from fans. This one is a much better look, and also complements the new NWSL franchise Racing Louisville.
I think we all know how stupid this Calvinball rule is, so I’m just going to say this to Major League Soccer: that’s...not...how...the...coronavirus...works.
Manchester City’s Ferran Torres scored a hat trick as Spain routed Germany, 6-0. That close actually makes the match look less lopsided than it really was.
One of my favorite athletes of all time...The Kid! Ken Griffey, Jr. has joined the Seattle Sounders ownership group in what should be viewed as a terrific move for the franchise.
Enjoy the day, everyone.
