Zach Attacks Lisbon

Our beloved Chicago Fire suffers another loss as mighty keeper Zach Thornton signs a
six-month deal with Benfica. I linked to SoccerAge because I liked how they called the Fire “Reigning MLS Champions.” We wish. Hopefully, “six months” means “Until Bossio returns, shortly after the MLS season starts.”

Honda UK’s “My First License”

In another example of how the British motorcycle industry kicks the American motorcycle industry’s ass, Honda UK is offering “license classesâ€? for 5-11-year olds at local bike shows.
