Soccer Weekend

My favorite team in English soccer, Tottenham Hotspur, may have gone down to defeat in the FA Cup semifinal Sunday- but all was not lost this soccer-wise. That's because the Philadelphia Union played their first home game at Lincoln Financial Field, managing to draw over 30,000 fans for a 3-2 victory.

They're playing at the Linc temporarily before their new Chester stadium is done, but the Union game looked like a hell of a lot of fun on TV, and Philly's clearly a good fit for soccer, even if it is minor-league level. I look forward to getting to a game sometime soon.
