Watch :: Diego Valeri’s Game Winning Strike v. Colorado

Filed under: Colorado Rapids, Goals, Highlights, Portland Timbers

This is a beaut. I happened to be watching this game and was remarking to myself how good of a game Diego was having, but just a little bit unlucky. He had a free kick that just missed. He was holding it down. Portland wasn’t playing with a ton of energy but he and Darlington were standing out to me.

Then Caleb implored the team to play faster coming out of the second half and you can see them playing with more urgency. Maxi scored the equalizer and then moments later Valeri unleashed this one.

This goal was so good it was trending on twitter on a Friday night, so that tells you something.

Cuadros, who dealt with many obstacles in order to get a soccer team in a community that wasn’t exactly accepting of Latinos.

It premiered last night and I just finished watching the first hour. Its solid stuff.

LSU Head Football Coach Les Miles Opens his “SEC Media Day” Interview Talking about Soccer

So, this is interesting. LSU head coach Les Miles goes on a really random rant as he kicks off his time at the podium during SEC Media Days. Why this is kind of a big deal, because the SEC. Deep down in the south, this is the defacto beginning of college football, and the South Eastern Conference in college football takes themselves waaaaaaay too seriously. Well, at least most of them. Because if there is one thing that we have found out over the last decade or two, is that this cat leaves all his eff’s at home, all the time.

Good to see that this good ole boy is a fan of the game (or at least the World Cup) and he knew what he was talking about a little bit… it starts to get a little bit away from him at the end, but its a solid Les Miles rant.
