While the snow falls in the Northeast and the sun creeps away in Florida, I wanted to catch you all up on a few items as Friday winds down.
Here is my latest Fox Soccer column on the MLS Labor talks. To sum up, anyone who thinks a strike can't and won't happen is kidding themselves. It's a strong possibility and I'd bet on a strike happening sometime in mid-March (hopefully not, but there's little reason to think a deal gets done without a strike).
I will be attending the Disney Soccer Classic on Saturday in Orlando and will be providing live commentary coverage of the final on SBI. New York is facing Toronto FC in the final while Houston takes on FC Dallas in the consolation match. I'll definitely cover the NY-TFC match. Not as sure about Houston-FCD.
Those new US national team road jerseys will make their debut on Wednesday in the friendly vs. the Netherlands. SBI will be in Amsterdam for that match so stay tuned for our coverage of the match.
Apologies for not posting the Soccer on TV this Weekend schedule (Getting ready for the trip to Europe next week). I will post that shortly. If you're making plans, be sure to be up early tomorrow for Chelsea-Manchester City, where John Terry and Wayne Bridge will take part in of the more dramatic meetings you'll ever see.
That's all for now. Feel free to share your thoughts on these, or any other topics of the day in the comments section below.
