    December 13 we should have another major league professional franchise to follow for those with ties/roots to the Sac area.

    Its between us Cincinnati and Nashville for 2 spots in the MLS. Cant wait ! our boys are ready and our fans are the best in the nation !

Sacramento and Nashville, Tennessee, are considered the favorites to be awarded teams next month. Cincinnati and Detroit also are bidding.

    I am so excited for this to (potentially) happen!!!! This is another one of those things that, no matter where in the freaking world I am at that time, I will not miss opening night/day. That will be something special.

    I drive by the construction site everyday. They have been moving dirt out of the site for the past 2 weeks. Tons of vehicles moving on and off the site everyday. I hope thats a sign that this is a done deal.

    Timbers vs Republic should be a regular away day for me. Looking forward to a good friendly rivalry with the TBB folks.

    With only one Major League Sports team in the area, the Sacramento Market is ripe for a second, especially for a growing league like the MLS. I don't see how we aren't chosen.

    My honest opinion is Sacramento has proven that they deserve it. My opinion on MLS is that they are driven in all kinds of other directions and I wouldn't put it past them to go to Cincinnati and Detroit.

    I will be adding MLS tickets to my list of "Season Tickets to purchase once I move back to the Sacramento area". I've already added Kings tickets to that list. And I am seriously considering adding Sharks (hockey) tickets as well. Life's goals. We shall see. :)
