Soccer in the US: News Watch

The FBM is more than just about the intersection of beer and soccer, but about the culture of soccer in the United States as well. We are just as concerned about creating new fans of the game as documenting the growth of the game. From time to time we'll feature articles about said culture, everything from fans, teams, stadiums... anything to knowledge of soccer in this country.

Today, some links from various media outlets around the country:
