Thank You Sun-Sentinel

For those of you who don't know, the Sun-Sentinel is a Striker Likers newspaper. It's our local record and examiner. From the NASL days to the APSL championship run and even through today, we Likers get our soccer fix from the Sun-Sentinel's pages.

Still, mistakes are made. In recent light of the Miami Dolphins record-breaking season, it seemed fitting for some staff members at the Sun to take a jab at our beloved Strikers. Some people still think that the number of points on the scoreboard are directly related to the excitement and action on the field.

As Likers, we know the contrary. So thank you Sun-Sentinel for living in the past enough to think that people make fun of soccer because of "low scores". Instead, you went above and beyond, you put the Striker jersey back where it should be, on the pages of your Sports Section.

The Gods Have Spoken

Italy has been awarded for their humbleness in stealing a World Cup second round victory over Australia with a dubious penalty by being placed in Euro '08's 'Group of Death' along side France, Holland, and Romania.

Good things just always seem to happen to good people.

In other news, still no Ft. Lauderdale Strikers, but you can catch the Orlando Sharks of the MISL on Fox Soccer Channel (they're still winless after 7 games, but we've got our fingers crossed) and the USL and MSL doesn't start still April.

We'll be posting some more authentic Striker memoribilia to the blog, we've got a license plate and small banner.
