Hleb Gets My Goal of the Week

Alex Hleb has to get my goal of the week. Check out the former Arsenal/Barca man's mazy run through the entire Timisoara defence for Stuttgart's second goal. BTW, love the Romanian team's name. Timi!!!

Scorpion Kick Goal Scorer Coming to MLS

Remember that goal I was drooling over a few months ago? Well, the scorer of that unbelievably sweet scorpion kick goal, Luis Angel Landin, has just been signed by the Houston Dynamo. That's a major signing for MLS. Not only is he a young player with plenty of upside, but he's a Mexican coming to a market with many Mexican fans.

Here's that goal again. Check out his reaction. He's just as surprised it went in as everyone else.

Soccer Commercials

Here are a few commercials that ESPN and FSC are showing to promote thier EPL and UEFA Champions League broadcasts respectively.
