Arlo White, the Brit, who’s the brilliant voice of the Sounders is in talks with NBC. Or NBC is in talks with Arlo. This could potentially be sad for the Sounders, as Arlo quickly has emerged as one of the keys to the Sounders fan success. But for soccer overall in the US, this could be the defining moment that takes soccer from being a regional success to a national presence that can rival the NFL.

Ha, you laugh, yes I said rival the NFL, America is growing up  and that should include embracing a more global and mature sport.

(I’m going to get so much crap for that last sentence!)
