FC Basel manager Thorsten Fink has called a halt to his career with the Swiss club and will move on to manage the German side Hamburg SV in the Bundesliga.

I will be posting a comparison essay on the government structures of FIFA and the United States of America since the two have a bit in common. I will also be writing about my reaction to the Seattle Sounders home game this Saturday against the San Jose Earthquakes. This game will be Kasey Keller's last regular season home match for the Sounders before he retires, I'm sure it will be an amazing atmosphere! Coverage will include highlights and player ratings (from both teams) as well as photos and videos of the much anticipated ferry ride over to Seattle from Bainbridge Island! We're looking at a potential crowd of around 60,000 people all coming to thank Kasey Keller for his dedication and service to the team of Soccer City. Also a recap and some photos of the Wooden Spoon charity tournament on Bainbridge Island last weekend. The photos involve some wild and fun costumes and great action shots of players of all ages.
