Soccer Saturday: Your Running Commentary

GeoffCameronStoke (ISIphotos.com)


Geoff Cameron's recent run of matches has been an extremely tough one, from matches against Mexico and World Cup qualifiers, to the season-opening Premier League draw against Arsenal. Things won't get any easy for the U.S. national team centerback on Saturday as he and Stoke City take on reigning English champions Manchester City.

Maurice Edu will be hoping to make his Stoke debut as well, while Cameron looks to continue his impressive run for the Potters. Manchester City will be trying to keep pace with unbeaten Chelsea, which faces Queens Park Rangers today in what should be a contentious London Derby. John Terry and Anton Ferdinand will renew acquaintances for the first time since last season's controversial meeting where Ferdinand claimed Terry hurled racist remarks at him.

In Spain, Real Madrid takes on Sevilla in the top match-up in La Liga this season. Cristiano Ronaldo will look to put his recent unhappiness aside and try to keep the defending champions within range of league leaders Barcelona.

In Mexico, U.S. national team forward Herculez Gomez will look to help Santos Laguna knock off Mexican power Club America in Mexico City.

    got it. must’ve just been looking up on replays where it was close calls. As a former defender, I also prefer no-calls, but it’s a pet peeve of mine that refs don’t call fouls that would otherwise be called, just because they’re in the penalty box (i.e. hazard’s play). One of the reasons the box is there is to mark a place that tells defenders to play smart or else.

    The growing cross-over between net-provided media and cable-provided media is already being reviewed by the FCC. Tell your congressman that you hate your cable company and want more competition. Net-based content distributors should be allowed to compete unimpeded against the cable monopolies.

    But patient, alot of these FCC regulations are there for the benefit of the cable companies (like the rule that they can’t sell individual channels, only arbitrary packages of channels). There are 3 channels that I think that I need…and I have to go up AT LEAST 3 subscriptions packages beyond basic to get them.

    Cable is obsolete and won’t go down without throwing it’s weight around to stop people from streaming entertainment in place of paying for big cable packages.
