Hirings and Firings
D.C. United introduced their new investors today at a press conference. United fans will be happy to know that their first priority is finding the team a new home.
Diego Maradona (or as I like to call him, Prima Donna) was fired from his position as coach for the Dubai club Al Wasl, despite having signed a two-year deal in May 2011. His team finished 8th in the 12 team league.
Speaking of Captain America, he took some time out from making life-decisions to play some softball. He even scored a home run during Major League Baseball’s All-Star celebrity softball game. Way to represent, Los!
World Football Challenge 2012
