Check out a thing.
I’ll make this quick and to the point: In addition to KCKRS, your humble link aggregator also hosts a twice-weekly podcast covering American soccer called The Best Soccer Show. In a bid to raise that show to a new level, we’re running a fundraising campaign at Indiegogo.com.
Here’s the link to the campaign.
American soccer lacks for quality radio coverage (in fact, it’s practically non-existent), and the shows that do exist don’t cover the game on a national level (or don’t do it well, or aren’t interactive). That’s the gap we’re filling.
So take a look, and if you feel like supporting us with a few scheckles, that would be dandy.

WHEN NOT PRETENDING TO BE A DRUNK GUY IN A STRIP CLUB, BOB KRAFT IS TURNING DOWN THE CHANCE TO BUY LIVERPOOL.

ANYONE WANT TO JOIN ME ON THE STREET TO CHEER ON PEDESTRIANS CROSSING ILLEGALLY?
I wonder if having that German cheering section was the greatest thing that ever happened to the parking lady. I think it might be for me. Ironic or not, sometimes we just need people to cheer for us. FOLLOW KCKRS! LIKE KCKRS! HOORAY FOR KCKRS!
