Monday After: Happy Holidays

quinnI know many of my readers are on vacation, off from work or spending time with family this week. However, I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a wonderful holiday season and Happy 2013.  I don’t say this enough, but this site would have shut down long ago without your contributions, readership and interest.  So thank you for your readership, and have a wonderful week with your friends and families.

That said, I will still have some posts up this week.  I will likely not have any new content on Christmas, but definitely some new content for the rest of the week.  Don’t forget to share your thoughts on the business stories of the year.

First, I want to recognize the Houston Dynamo for their wonderful gesture directed towards the community of Newtown, Connecticut.  A number of Dynamo players and staff will travel to Newtown in early January for a “Soccer Night Out” in the grief stricken community.  Team General Manager Chris Canetti is a Connecticut native and he will lead the Dynamo delegation.  The Qunnipiac University soccer team will also be involved in the event.  For more on the event, click here.

One final note.  The league announced the schedule for home openers last week.  The season opens on March 2 with an array of fascinating matches and continues the following day with another set of top games.  The national television schedule will come later, but Portland hosting New York, Philly hosting Sporting and Houston hosting DC are all possible games for the league’s partners.  The Canadian networks will likely focus on Vancouver and Toronto from BC Place.
