End of the Season Awards Day 8


End of the Season Awards Kyle and Eva

We’re tripling up again today with three categories in the End of the Season Awards: Cutest Couple, Most Likely to Change the World, and Poster Model for American Soccer Being Awesome.

What romantic pairing makes you go aww? (Sorry, all of you who nominated Dax and Heath. We said actual couples only.) Whose looking out for their fellow human beings impresses you as much as their performance on the pitch? Who do you think exemplifies why soccer in America rocks?

Cutest Couple nominees are Jay DeMerit & Ashleigh McIvor, Stu Holden & Karalyn West, Kyle Martino & Eva Amurri Martino, and Megan Rapinoe & Sarah Walsh.

Most Likely to Change the World Nominees are Jeb Brovsky, Landon Donovan, Mike Lahoud, Alex Morgan, Darlington Nagbe, Megan Rapinoe, Chris Seitz, and Taylor Twellman

Nominees for Poster Model for American Soccer is Awesome are Jimmy Conrad, Clint Dempsey, Steven Lenhart, Lee Nguyen, Heath Pearce, Chris Pontius, Megan Rapinoe, Abby Wambach, and Chris Wondolowski.

Thanks again for all your votes. All categories are still open here.

End of the Season Awards Day 7


end of the season awards buddy copsWith the real Election Day as a day off for our End of the Season Awards, we’re tripling up the categories for you to vote on today and tomorrow.

Up for a vote today are Player You’d Like to See on MLS: 36, Rookie Most Likely to Succeed, and Duo Most Likely to Star in a Buddy Cop Movie.

MLS: 36 is the NBC Sports Network show that follows a player around for 36 hours leading up to a big match, so it’s all about your voyeuristic side. Also, note that the category isn’t “Rookie of the Year,” it’s all about who you think has the potential to go far.

Thanks as always for your help in this fun, and you can keep voting in all categories here.


Election Day 2012: A Personal, Political Post.


It’s Election Day 2012. Get your butts out there and vote (unless you already have). It will mean the world to me if you do.

Jimmy Conrad Vies for Megan Rapinoe’s BFF Attention


KickTV keeps churning out the great videos, including bringing Jimmy Conrad’s American Soccer Spectacular from the podcast world to YouTube.

In the latest installment, Jimmy headed to the US Women’s National Team friendly in Connecticut to win Megan Rapinoe’s heart as his BFF.

This isn’t the first time Jimmy has tried to steal Megan’s BFF status away from Lori Lindsey. He displayed this sexy, sexy look during the team’s Olympics run in August.
