  1. The new Orlando stadium coming along:
  2. The MLS Cup will feature two teams who have never played in it before. Very cool, should be a great Cup no matter who wins the East final.
  3. My biggest fear at this point is his promise to defund all climate change R&D and ignore the Paris agreement. Hopefully that is something he will move to the center on. Even with Clinton the effort is not nearly enough for how dire the situation is, but it is at least something. I am terrified for the future because of this.
  4. For you and everyone else in similar situations...I am deeply sorry
  5. So what does a GOP controlled government mean for the next few years? It scares me.
  6. He plans to defund climate change research, and will likely set us back decades. It is very bad.
  7. Wow Jax. I had no idea they were even looking to change? Just awful. Suns was a great name with a ton of history. I like as much whimsy as anyone but so much of this ends up as forced crap.
  8. Buy it now and never look back. I have bought every edition since 6.5 except 1 or 2 and every single one is worth the full price let alone $10.
  9. We are under a hurricane warning here as well. A bit inland but still preparing for heavy wind damage, flooding, power outages etc. Not to panicky about it, but am prepared.
  10. At this point, I would be over the moon thrilled if they just called them the "Braves".
  11. So what is the news on MLS expansion? Last I saw Minnesota has a TBA date, Atlanta is next year and LA after than and Miami is up in the air. So is Atlanta going to possibly be a one team expansion next season?
  12. I still am not thrilled with the nickname choices, but Kissimmee or Osceola in front of them instead of Florida would be more stomachable.
  13. A bit late but:
  14. It's a relocation so I understand wanting to rebrand. But yeah. My submission was Osceola Spurs, or Kissimmee Spurs. Either way it should reflect the community. It's one thing if this is a major league club, but sorry people in St. Augustine, Vero Beach or Key West aren't going to give two craps about the Florida Rodeo Clowns. Don't name it after the state when your ticket buyers are going to be locals. Tourists aren't going to drive all the way down US192 away from all the parks for a Rodeo Clowns - Tortugas match up.
  15. As someone who lives in the Kissimmee area and is excited for the team, these names are awful and extremely disappointing. The trend of over the top wacky names is getting a bit old. It's minor league ball, I get it, and it's all good fun but this is just so forced. At the least I wish they had used Kissimmee or Osceola as the location name. It's the Florida State League, all 12 teams are in Florida, why name it Florida!?
