San Diego: Soccer City USA

San Diego isn't Soccer City USA. Period. Tell me once anyone has heard of the wildly passionate support San Diego gives to soccer. So Mark, buddy, I know you write about soccer. You should probably know the history of it in your own country before you go and shoot your mouth off on the radio and make yourself look like a fool.

This is a selection from a press release put out a decade ago.

"During their inaugural season in 1975, the Timbers advanced to the NASL Soccer Bowl creating an instant love affair with their fans, which earned Portland the moniker "Soccer City USA." Additionally the largest crowd ever to see an event at Civic Stadium occurred August 28, 1977 when 35,548 fans watched the New York Cosmos beat the Seattle Sounders in Soccer Bowl ‘77."
