Paddington wow. It's like the epicenter of pro-football. You can't hide from it there...Is your family over there QPR supporters?<quoted text>lol wow that was some Brawl Sayin. That makes 2 of us. I was born in Paddington London UK, immigrated to Canada at a young age but many relatives still that way and US. So I guess Football is in the blood for sure.
Soccer has improved but it seems they make sure that while it improves, it does so in baby steps. Even though the world practices supporting their football clubs and countries as religion the numbers are there too. Over 300 million Champions League Final viewers to 111 million for the SuperBowl yet America doesn't think we should tap into that and make soccer mainstream? Retarded...<quoted text> Oh no doubt regarding MLS and success of the big three (LA NY Seattle) We have always been a sad state here. From the time they traded De Raserio we were done. We brought in Winters who was quite a player in his day and then Paul Mariner which was a flop too. We actually work closely with Toronto FC academy up here. Yea we know about Soccer in the US up here, hence why they (Americans) salivate looking for our guys to recruit for US colleges. Onthe other hand Soccer has improved quite a bit your way. I think Donovan has done alot too.
Donovan has done great things too for US soccer club and country and he's held his own in the BPL but yet he's nowhere near box office. Not even close. Thierry Henry, one of the best to ever play and while he's a shell of his former self most Americans have no clue who he is and don't care even though the man was a footballing god.
LOL, man you're in the hotbed of talent aren't you!? I watched that Wiggans vid and he looks good. I saw the lob pass to him and man his head was at the rim when he threw it down! And to think the kid will get even better and jump higher!? Wow.<quoted text> Yes Tristan is from here. Went to a high school just down the road from me. Nicholson who plays for Orlando Magic is from the city just south of me. Mississauga which we surround Toronto(burbs). The number one recruited highschooler NBA bound is also from this area. Andrew Wiggans. Son of ex nbaer Mitchell Wiggans and Canadian Mother was an Olympic medallist some time ago . This kid is something at 15. Have a look.NBA Teams are already all over him.
