Ten random things: September 22

Ten current or former United States soccer clubs:

  1. Los Angeles Salsa (American Professional Soccer League, 1993-94)
  2. CD Chivas USA (Major League Soccer, 2004-present)
  3. Brooklyn F.C. (American Soccer League, 1933-34)
  4. Denver Avalanche (Major Indoor Soccer League, 1980-82)
  5. San Diego Nomads (American Professional Soccer League, 1990)
  6. Kansas City Wizards (Major League Soccer, 1995-present)
  7. Tampa Bay Rowdies (North American Soccer League, 1975-84)
  8. Cleveland Stokers (North American Soccer League, 1968)
  9. Southern California Lazers (American Soccer League, 1978)
  10. New York Express (Major Indoor Soccer League, 1986-87)

Hey, remember all the hullabaloo when Nintendo wanted to buy the Seattle Mariners, and MLB blocked the sale until a deal was put into place to make sure the American partners stayed in control of the team? I bring it up because as a result of the Fed's takeover of AIG, the U.S. government is the primary sponsor of Manchester United. Neat!
