    never seen a cricket match, so I couldn't tell you if there are any similarities...
    I have once fielded some fly balls that were being hit with a cricket bat? that thing was pretty heavy. being that I am a good hour or so away (with no traffic) from the bronx, I don't do live games too often. between the commuting and the actual length of the game it does take half the day up. I used to go a lot more when I was younger, as I've been a baseball guy forever. my boys are actually pretty good... one being very smooth- think shortstop, second baseman, centerfielder... the other being very strong - think catcher/first baseman...

    being a yankee fan is not as glorious as one would imagine... they are disliked pretty much anywhere in the US besides around here and in FL, where they train. there are a lot of "bandwagon" fans who give guys like me a bad rep = ) NYC is a huge tourist mecca and the NYY are a very big attraction so there are also those who cheer and have no idea what's happening.....

    NYY are known lately for "buying all their championships" and such...
    lots of garbage like that...

    not really thrilled in the way they've gone about doing things lately but their biggest weapon is their deep pockets. they use them more than I'd like them to

    thank you for that! as always, your insight is much appreciated. I find myself just enjoying the game. Although I may not have a "team" per se, I suppose it's not necessary for true enjoyment. I am a rabid NYY fan though. Oh well. It's fantastic watching the game grow over here... I hope it never peaks!

    exactly what I was thinking. two different ends of the spectrum there. anyhow... I'm beginning to see that it's unpredictable... but that's not a bad thing in my eyes! I've also posted on some MCFC articles to no avail... I'm trying to determine if becoming a NYCFC fan automatically makes me an MCFC fan....? I am curious...what are your thoughts? Nobody likes MCFC and if they do, they're a bandwagon fan because, according to most, MCFC has just become relevant....

    how does Balotelli come so cheap compared to Di Maria? I'm having trouble understanding this

    Thanks! I enjoy your reading your posts. I try to encourage my boys as much as I can...
    The crowd at Michigan was just unbelievable! Many of those matches were drawing the crowds here. It's exciting and I'm waiting for the day the US is considered "relevant" on the world football stage

    hey friend... not presumptuous at all! I look forward to, and respect, anything you have to say and you have read into my posts well. NYCFC has invested a ton in the surrounding youth leagues... although they are quite far as I am more of a suburbanite. Going to watch a match every now and then would be a goal of mine. Villa was one of the first footballers I enjoyed watching and hope to see more of him. I wasn't aware Aussie cahill played on the RB until about 2 weeks ago. that's crazy! I will begin to follow MLS a bit more closely now. I have already begun watching the games on the weekends. My boys aren't as old as yours, and are roughly just starting out. They have taken a liking to playing keeper (a la Tim Howard?) which I understand is rare for kids of their age. You must understand that me being a Yankee / baseball guy for as long as I can remember, the fact that the football seed has been planted is wonderful and I hope it grows in them... it's so much fun watching them set up the goal on the front lawn, putting on their new gloves and playing with the neighbor kids...

    hey- a new club like NYCFC would need to sign how many? a full roster is usually 21-24 players? what do you think about the lampard deal, and how some of europe's best are coming here to the states as DP's? I'm sensing mixed emotions in here. some like it, and think it's good... others, not so much
