And the Dessert Cart Rolls On

Striker Likers, now is the time to rejoice! Our voices are being heard and read. Our little site here, for a short time, was nothing more than a sign post, but the fervor of Striker fever is catching on around the World (Wide Web, that is).

Facebook now has a dedicated group of Striker Likers.

Twitter has also come around with a Striker Liker page.

The Miami FC fanclub homepage has a many Striker Likers in their ranks.

What does this all mean? Well, not much, but at least people are talking, tweeting, blogging, posting photos, sharing memories and that just might lead to something.

Now, wouldn't that be nice?

Farewell Orioles

Thank god that's over.

Remember when, not too long ago, we had that scare of the Baltimore Orioles demolishing Lockhart Stadium to construct a state of the art Spring Training and Minor League facility? Well, that didn't pan out and now the B. O.'s are moving to Sarasota, which not only frees Lockhart Stadium from any bulldozers in the near future but also means there will be no Spring Training baseball in South Florida at all.

Some would also argue that we don't have Major League Baseball either based on attendance numbers at Landshark Stadium recently.

In any case, farewell Orioles, we didn't like birds anyhow.

Bring it Back or Just Start it Again

So we know we do a lot of history digging on this site and we do it for several reasons. For starters, we love the fact that we had such an experience once and that gives us the belief that we can have it again. We also do it because in order to have this beautiful game again we need to draw on the past and bring it into the future.

Now, we've been noticing a lot of stir lately. More items on ebay. More website and forums with people talking about the strikers and so on and so forth.

It is a time of new beginnings and communication. So let's make this work.

The Fever Grows

I don't know who this is. But let this picture speak the words of a soccer fever getting ready to explode.

So we didn't get a Barcelona MLS team. So the Miami FC drew 405 fans to FIU this weekend after the Gold Cup doubleheader hosted 17,000. So what, who cares?

Striker Likers will always be Striker Likers, and it's never to late to become one!

GO USA this weekend against Panama. Congratulations Estudiantes for winning the Copa Libertadores and tonight, well, let's see what happens with David Beckham and Landon Donovan.

There is Something in the Air

It seems as though, more and more, day after day, a fever is beginning to brew. When did it start we don't really care, but the smell is in the air and it is a sweet sweet fragrance. Soccer in South Florida is starting to take shape. Don't deny it. Don't hate it. Participate.

This weekend the Gold Cup will FIU home. Miami FC's season is in full swing and a local is a star on the National Team.

Could this be the ramblings of something good?

People are interested. People are doing crazy things.

But we are loving every minute of it.
