What we’re thinking, what we’re watching, what’s coming on the blog today and the RASNoD (Random American Soccer Name of the Day). Setting up your day in soccer …
Big Important story of the day: Coming out of Europe, the final Champions League semifinal leftovers will be cleared off the media table. And on our side of the Atlantic, Major League Soccer will (probably) hand out suspensions today.
What you should watch on TV: Not much out there today. Honestly, I don’t know about the rest of you, but with Champions League tenseness the last two days, and with a big mid-day match ahead on Monday from England, I could use the break.
Ahead on the blog today*: As its NFL Draft Day, college selections are on my mind. I’ll look back on which MLS clubs have done well for themselves at recent SuperDrafts.
RASNoD (Random American Soccer Name of the Day): Leo Cullen
Twitter dap: Jürgen Klinsmann (@J_Klinsmann): “It has been another great season of Champions League. Looking forward to the Final between Chelsea and Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena.”
PST background noise while blogging today: Jessica Lea Mayfield
We’ll leave you with this: I know a lot of people are upset about all the starters out for the Champions League final, and the issue of caution accumulation will be topical in days to come. The cry will rise to eliminate or curtail the practice cards carrying over from one round the next in a tournament. But there’s another way to look at it: Don’t get yellow cards!
