    I respect your opinion Andy, we'll get back to this argument in 10 years and see where the USMNT stands then.

    Andy - Louisville's soccer scene is growing very quickly. Your article on the local AO chapter was right on the money. There is also the Louisville Coopers movement going on to bring professional soccer to town.

    Andy, I wanted to personally say "Thank You" for such a great article on the wheelchair basketball National tournament 2013. It was a pleasure. The Warriors ended in 3rd place for Varsity division. Kyle Gribble also received an award for 1st team All Tournament. One of the other young men, Matt Molenkamp received the Neal Radbel Sportsmanship award, which both young men received at their banquet Saturday night following the completion of the tournament. Again, thank you and hope to see more of your work....Sincerely, Sherri Gribble
