He's a Keeper

Just came across this article from yesterday's Daily Herald in Provo, Utah. It is a mainly bio piece on Bruce Arena's favorite goalie Kasey Keller, but the reporter does get in a little laugh with this line "...he was...transferred in January to the team with one of the tougher names to pronounce in pro sports, Germany's Borussia Moenchengladbach."

It is also good to see someone who was there reflect back on how far soccer has come in the US over the last 15 years:

"Qualifying for the 1990 World Cup, you were happy to have a game at St. Louis Soccer Park and have it sold out with 5,000, 6,000 people," he said. "And then now, we'll play a game somewhere and if we only have 30,000, we're a little disappointed. So that's a big measure."

Give it a read because it's always good to know the keeper.
