I'm worried I might be lonely otherwise.PREAMBLE: Read my preview of this match here. The basic gist: the Chicago Fire without Mike Magee is a little bit like the Portland TrailBlazers if Terry Stotts decided to drop LaMarcus Aldridge in favor of Meyers Leonard.

Both offer the same exhortation: Buy local, buy fresh. Import neither your soccer matches nor your freezer-truck tomato.Well, Deadspin's peeing on your parade a bit. After ...   More

Thorns Coach Quits

Cindy Parlow Cone cites family as reason for decision

News
The Trail Blazers’ impressive early-season toughness and the Timbers’ deep run in the playoffs may have Portland dreaming of titles—but it only took the Portland Thorns FC one season to win as many championships as the two marquee men’s franchises have in their entire history put together. As Thorns writer Jonanna Widner pointed out in October, "you can't argue with hardware."Which makes it ...   More
