If you’re reading this you are probably a big soccer fan and live in the Kansas City area, so would you attend Women’s Professional Soccer games? Continue reading

Burciaga Traded to Colorado

 

Vermes/Onalfo continue to tear apart the Wizards 2007 team, this time sending Burciaga to the Colorado CRapids. It appears they are either going to rely a great deal on rookies or they are clearing cap space for some serious signings. Let’s hope it is the later and somehow related to Onalfo’s trip to Argentina last month. Iván Trujillo shouldn’t cost too much to sign, these next few weeks should be really disappointing or really exciting depending upon what the FO does with this new found cap space. Official Press Release follows. Continue reading

Davy Arnaud Surgery “Official”

 

Finally the team has spoken regarding Davy Arnaud’s surgery. The surgery was a micro-fracture surgery, a result of work done on his knee last winter. That is it was not a result of a particular injury, but rather he has been playing in pain. While this is “news” I feel like I’ve heard it all before. Also mentioned in the report is hernia surgery for Jack Jewsbury, recovery should be much quicker for Jewsbury. If you wish to read the whole report follow the link. Report on Arnaud
