The US Men’s team continues their pursuit of a place in World Cup 2010, facing off against Trinidad and Tobago in Nashville on Wednesday, April 1st. The game is being broadcast on ESPN2 at 6:30 pm. I’ll be at Quincy Magoo’s at 900 E Battlefield for the game, feel free to come out and join me. Hopefully the result, and the quality of the game, will be better than what was exhibited Saturday in El Salvador.
I’m still in St Louis, meeting with a new client Monday. Tuesday I’ll be lobbying in Jefferson City, in my role as President of the Missouri Film Alliance of Springfield, promoting the business generation that tax credits offer our local businesses. If you’re a fan of independent films, or a business interested in learning about how to use video in sales and marketing, check out the website I’ve created and sign up for our newsletter.
I may have an opportunity to cover the Jeff City Jays game on Tuesday, as they host the Camdenton Lakers. I’m hearing some very positive things about the Jays, who are now part of District 10 with Camdenton, Rolla and Lebanon. Based upon early results, that District is beginning to look like a real dogfight which will make this a key early match up.
Thursday marks the start of the Christian County Tournament, jointly hosted by Ozark and Nixa High School. A very large slate of games through Saturday day that will get my attention. I’ll have more details later this week and there will be game reports, photos and video interviews to offer.
Friday will bring the 4th anniversary of this website and I’ll be celebrating by covering the Kickapoo vs Catholic game, the first game covered by SGFsoccer.com and a regular stop for many fans in the region due to it’s competitive nature. The Greenwood Blue Jays will be hosting their Classic on Saturday, which includes Carthage and two other teams I’m still trying to identify. More on that to come.
Time to also gear up and be kind to the soccer tourists who will be visiting Springfield. Lake Country Soccer is hosting the 9th Annual Coca-Cola/Dr Pepper Cup at the facilities on the Eastside and we’ll have a large crowd in town. If you have a team participating (Boys U9 up to U18, and girls U9 up to U14) let me know the schedules so I can try and make it out for a game or two. Hopefully the weather will cooperate better than it did here in St Louis where I’m aware of teams who didn’t play a single game.
Ah, and for the fan of the college game, the Drury Panthers will be playing several games on Saturday at Harrison Stadium. The Women have the Central Missouri State Mules and the Missouri S&T Miner’s visiting for a pair of games while the men will be hosting Mid-America Nazarene which includes Matthew Gow (Lebanon/Springfield Demize). There will be a second team announced as well.
The Missouri State Lady Bears are traveling this week for a pair of games at Oklahoma State while the Men will be in St Louis to take on the SLU Billikens. Both teams are playing on Saturday.
