Sep 6th 2011



    The action starts Tuesday this week with Euro 2012 Qualifying and anInternational Friendly for the U.S. Mens National Team.  Englandface Wales at Wembley for a lunchtime kickoff (MST), and the UnitedStates take on Belgium in Brussels.  Englandsmashed Bulgaria last week, and look primed for qualification with a win overWales.  The U.S., despite losing 1-0 to Costa Rica, played the mostattractive football they have played in years.  This is Klinsmanns third matchin charge, and the USMNT is facing a decent European side here. 


    Friday night our MLS Champion ColoradoRapids take on the league leading LosAngeles Galaxy in a battle of epic proportions (9pm KO).  L.A. hasonly lost three times in twenty seven games played this year, and once againappear to be the class of the league (at least for regular season).  Thiswill be a tough test for the Rapids, but they should be ready to bounce backafter a tough road loss last week to Chicago.  All of our players willhave returned from International duty, and should be ready to battle againstthe likes of Donavan, Beckham, and Keane. Both the Bulldog and Three Lions will be rocking for this one, so make your waydown to support our Burgundy Boys!


    If you arent too hung over from the Rapids clash with L.A. on Friday, we havean incredible lineup of football slated for Saturday morning. Liverpool, Chelsea, Man City, and Arsenalfeature at 8am, followed by Barcelona at 10am and Man.United at 10:30am.  A true football morning with powerhouse teamsfacing off against their respective opponents.  Bloody Marys andBreakfast will be the order of the day for these early matches, and then therest of the afternoon and evening fills out quite nicely with La Liga,Serie A, MLS, and Rugby World Cup. We also have a quality Championship fixture featuring at10:20am with Derby County taking on Coventry,and our MLS match of the day kicks off at 2pm with Seattlefacing Salt Lake.  Late Saturday night the Pub will stayopen to feature Englands first match in the RugbyWorld Cup vs. Argentina.  Curry will be the farefor this battle royale, come and join us if you are in to pulling an allnighter in support of the Three Lions.


    Sunday morning we kick off the day with the Formula 1 Grand Prix ofItaly live from Monza (6am), and then head right in to our morningfootball schedule.  Two EPL fixtures are scheduled, along with a bigBundesliga clash between Wolfsburg and Schalke. We finish our weekend with heavy underdogs, the U.S. MensNational Rugby team, facing Ireland in their firstmatch of the Cup (12am).   Should be a great weekend with plentyof action to look forward to, be it football, rugby, or F1.  Cheers!
