A little slow to post today after last nights excitement (and watching the comments flow in) but I’d be negligent to not point to my favorite MLS side and their win last night in the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup. Congrats, it’s also nice to be able to pile onto the pain that I hope Alexi Lalas is feeling in LA. Fitting after one of his final acts on the pitch was to deny the Fire an Open Cup title in 2001.
On a local note, the winning goalkeeper is a graduate of Missouri State University. Matt Pickens is a St. Francis Borgia graduate, from Washington Missouri, and a 2004 graduate of SMSU. Hey Coach Leamy – we need to set up an alumni list where we can keep an eye on this stuff, at least until MSU decides to have a D1 website! Update – some more info on Pickens!
