The “invisible” foam spray was most definitely one of the breakout stars of the World Cup (even though MLS has been using it for years) so much so that it has been introduced in the Premier League for this season…. looks like they may have needed a little bit more training… nice job dude.
Along with the Men in Blazers and Alexi’s loafers, the foam spray was one of the breakout stars of the World Cup. Everyone seemed to be talking about it. And it seemed to work pretty well in terms of lessening encroachment on free kicks. It will be making it’s English Premier League debut this weekend as well as the design of a soon to be released Bumpy Pitch shirt. Info on that soon! So it seemed fitting to post this photo today.

Arriving at the end of an already fantastic night for supporters, news that Sergio Agüero had committed his long-term future to City drew rapturous applause and a standing ovation from those inside Manchester Central for the club’s annual season launch party.
The Argentine ace has agreed terms on a new five-year deal which will run until 2019.
Speaking on this new contract, the striker smiled: “The reality seems to be that ever since I came here, during every close season, there have always been rumours suggesting that I might be returning to Spain.
“There has always been this speculation but I certainly never pay much attention to it.
“People hear this stuff flying around and they take it seriously but I can tell the fans and everyone at City to relax, I’m going to be here until I see out my contract.
Since his arrival on 28 July 2011, the 26-year-old has lifted two Premier League titles, the Capital One Cup and the FA Community Shield.
In that time, he has made 122 appearances, scoring an incredible 75 goals – and there are certainly some memorable strikes among that collection
Fathom Events and NBC Sports Group are bringing the famed Barclays Premier League 2014-15 soccer season to movie theatres nationwide. Every Saturday morning, catch your favorite English club soccer teams LIVE on the big screen.
Wait, WHAT!!!! Did that just say that they will be showing Premier League on movie screens!!!!!! Every Saturday.
* So, it happened to be date night tonight and me and friend went to get a bite to eat at a local casual dining spot. While we were eating some avocado egg rolls and stuff mushrooms, waiting for the rest of our food to come out, we decided to see a flick as well. After a shot of Jack, we decided on going to see Lets Be Cops. That movie is funny as shit by the way, but its just background for this post.
As we were leaving, she of course needed to make a stop in the restroom so it just happened to be me and the dude sweeping up, while I happened to see that commercial above playing on some monitors in the lobby. I didnt see the whole commercial, I just saw two guys doing the weekend at bernies dance and then I saw Timmy Howard. Then I asked dude sweeping what the hell I just watched and he proceeded to give me the stinkeye, pull his earbuds out, but then tell me that it was something about soccer games being shown at movie theatres starting on Saturday.
He didnt seem like he was up to having a conversation about it, so I just took a mental note and hopped on the computer when I got home.
Apparently, this is a thing and this is for reals. Every week, there will be a game chosen, and it will be shown at select movie theatres across America. How awesome is that? I thought it might be at some rinky dink movie theatres, but the one closest to me, is Universal CityWalk. If you know anything about SoCal, and the Hollywood area in general, Universal CityWalk is a maaaaaaaajor hub.
Thats a really big pull, and there are many other big movie theatres that they will be showing these games.
Games, special half time content, I’m sure there will be some sort of promotional stuff going on. This is going to be really good. I can’t wait to go check some of these games out. I love it, and I love how more and more push and more and more acceptance is coming around.
I’ve said it before, and I know I’m beating the drum a little bit, but as a soccer community, we HAVE TO support this kind of stuff. We are now getting the attention that we’ve always wanted. We get sportscenter, we get the cover of webpages, we get all of the facebook status updates. We are big shit. Think about it… when was the last time they showed a Patriots game or an Angels game or a Duke v. North Carolina baskeball game at a movie theatre?
To ensure that the best, most impactful match-ups are featured in the movie theaters, each week’s game will be announced the Tuesday before the Saturday playdate.
Fans are encouraged to visit FathomEvents.com and their social media pages each week to see which match-up is being featured.
* Why didnt we know about this before today though? Hmph.
* International spelling of “Premiere” by the way. That’s in the youtube title. TYVM
