The touring production of Broadway’s Wicked is in Seattle right now, and soccer must be popular in the other Emerald City because even the Wizard is declaring his support for the Sounders.
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.
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.
I could be a nice neutral party and say, “Get out there and vote. It doesn’t matter how you vote, just do it.” But that would be lying to myself and to you and we’re not going to have any of that. Because it does matter to me how you vote.
First up, my right to marry is up for a vote in four states. Here’s how to vote if you’re in one of them:

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.
Looking forward to the exciting conclusion to that cliffhanger and more many great videos from Jimmy Conrad and the KickTV crew! And don’t worry, we’ll be BFFs with whomever gets left out in this BFF triangle.
