Hello again everyone, the grand experiment continues anew! This post is a replacement for my Friday newsletter, unless, of course, popular demand dictates I bring it back. Hopefully this will be the kind of 'extra' content you guys enjoy reading, and we can keep it going for a long time. Today's will be a little different this last weeks, as we're going very video heavy.
Before we go any further, please take some time to check out the Partners page. AP has several great partners, all working to grow the game of soccer at the lower levels, and more will be forthcoming. Check out their sites and lend them your support. Now, for your (hopefully soon to be) regularly scheduled program. Check it out
Nick Mendola of FC Buffalo: This weeks interview was a ton of fun, and Nick covered a lot of ground with me. Covers everything from naming conventions to the relationship between supporters and owners and the merits of pro/rel.
Youtube and Wimbledon: Did you know a Youtube star is responsible for a large amount of the cash infusion and fair amount of interest in AFC Wimbledon? Neither did I, and this story is insane.
Grassroots in China: Vice Sports has a series of videos where they travel the world looking at crazy things going on in the lower levels of soccer in different countries. This is about China, and it's almost as crazy as the last video for the day.
Thailand's Floating Pitch: A city built on stilts. A soccer field that floats. A rival team named Star War. You don't need any more reason to watch this, do you?
