Spoken like a true Phillies phan, I know. 😉
There’s lots of news this morning on the Boston Breakers front, starting with the fact that an agreement has been reached between the Boston Aztecs and the Boston Breakers. Under the agreement the Aztecs will become the reserve team of the Breakers. Seems like a positive for both teams.
Meanwhile, over on the other side of the Atlantic, Kelly Smith ended her Arsenal career with a hat trick — nice way to go! Her teammate Alex Scott also scored in a match which had the Arsenal winning five to nothing. Both Scott and Smith will be joining the Breakers for the inaugural WPS season. Smith and Scott leave their team having won the Women’s Premier League Cup — nice exit ladies!
In other Breakers news, I see that Candace Chapman is now the second Canadian international joining the Breakers. In addition, the Breakers have signed Brazilian forward Fabiana. That leaves the Breakers with five internationals — Fabiana, Chapman, Christine Latham, Kelly Smith, and Alex Scott. The Breakers open their season in April at Harvard Stadium!
In national news, I see that the Senate is set to investigate the CIA’s actions under George W. Bush. I hope that their focus will not be so much on what the CIA did as on where the orders came from that got them doing it. A thorough and unflinching investigation into these matters will go far, I think, in helping us to assign responsibility, punish where necessary, and move on from the dark deeds and dark days of the Bush administration.
I see, too, that LSU beat Tennessee last night. Poor Lady Vols! Check out the article cited in the USA Today sidebar widget.
It’s looking like a gray day — but no matter — HollyCornblog and CharlieHopbrew will be here soon. Let the good times roll! 🙂
