I'm So Excited..I'm So Scared

There it is ladies and germs. The new Florida Marlins stadium. It is exactly what we need. A Baseball stadium. A place where they can play baseball. Professionally. I guess if you are a baseball fan this is kind of cool. And hey, I am a sports fan and I love stadiums, but seriously. Thank you MLS. Thank you Barcelona FC. Thank you John Stamos. And most importantly, thank you Mom and Dad for taking me to Striker games and enlisting me in Thomas Rongen's Soccer Academy year after year. I'm not sure why I live down here anyway. I should move to Philly.

Thank you soccer world for making South Florida the black hole of Pro Soccer.

Where Is The Bad News?

• Over 20,000 season tickets sold
• An opening day attendance of over 30,000
• A 3-0 victory on opening day

All of us here in South Florida know the pain. Our MLS franchise fizzled out after 4 years. Our USL-1 team almost folded (they sold around 1,200 season tickets by the way). We couldn't even land a team with the backing of Barcelona.

There has to be something wrong with Seattle. There must be a deal with the devil. It is either that, or we down here are so envious and pessimistic that we can't picture what Seattle has.

Maybe if we are positive enough, good things will happen. Close your eyes everyone, Fort Lauderdale will have the Strikers again!
