While I was diligently working Tuesday afternoon, I checked CNN’s tech blog to follow Apple’s product announcement to see what my soon-to-be-purchased iPhone would provide. These latest iterations of Apple’s products seem to be more health-focused, which opens up a lot of possibilities for me and others who are pancreatically challenged.
Fall is coming. The leaves will start turning. The air will get crisper with each passing day. That can only mean one thing: Soccer has returned.
It’s been a busy time for the beautiful game, as the English Premiership is back and we’re just on the heels of the transfer deadline. We also just had the poorly timed international friendlies break, which nicely disrupts the start of the season, as well as the playoff push (and a cup final) for the Union in Major League Soccer.

I’ve been trying to figure out how to have this conversation, but I think it’s probably best to be direct. I’m breaking up with you, Doctor. I’ve already taken steps to see someone new. And let me assure you, it’s not me, it’s you.
The 2014 FIFA World Cup kicks off in just under two weeks, on June 12, and I can’t wait for the action to begin. The U.S., playing in this tourney’s Group of Death©, starts play Monday, June 16, against Ghana.
