  1. John, as you know me well, and I know you do, I have slowly tgeotn tired and apathetic toward American sports leagues in general and their quest for power and money. The NHL lockout ended my (small) interest in hockey, baseball’s steroid generation has derailed that interest, and American Football, in general, has become of little to no importance to me. Instead I choose to support those that play for the love of the game, desire to create strong traditional values rooted in fan involvement and self-bread rivalries, and depends on a grass root movement over money marketing to grow the sport. That’s soccer in America. My first love is now my only professional love. So long Big 8 and Big XII rivalries and tradition, it was fun while we were young.
