1st Anniversary of The Scoring Third!

What a year it has been for all of us here at The Scoring Third. We launched this blog back on July 1st of last year, during the peak of the USA's run through the World Cup. Honestly, the mixture of several lite beers, some buddies, and some soccer banter spawned the idea for this website; none of us ever thought it would actually happen. We wanted to create a blog that kept discussion of the beautiful game simple and light-hearted so that fringe and hardcore followers could all find a happy home. We've never claimed to be anything more than just a couple of dopes throwing ideas out on the blog-o-sphere to see where they bounce. We could never have imagined that thousands of people from all over the world would visit our site in the first year. We have had the chance to interview some big time ballers like Stuart Holden, Brian Ching, Andy Najar, and many more. We had our Monday Morning Keeper series of EPL weekend reports that was well received (and will be back in August). We have talked MLS expansion, new stadiums, new teams, and more. It has been a fantastic first year, so to each and every one of you we send many thanks.

So now that we are moving into our sophomore year, we want to hear from you. What type of topics do you want us to cover? Our goal for our second year is to be more interactive with our followers, whether through comments on our web page or tweets through our Twitter account.
