Because when we have the opportunity to post Cristiano Ronaldo pictures on the site, we take it. It's called web traffic, folks.
It's a very busy Sunday of soccer action this evening.
It starts out with the Portland Timbers taking on FC Dallas as JELD-WEN Field as the two Western Conference sides try to fight their way back into the playoff picture. That match starts at 6:00pm CST on the NBC Sports Network.
Then at 8:00 PM CST, switch over to ESPN2 as the Seattle Sounders will play host to the LA Galaxy in front of an expected crowd of over 60,000 at CenturyLink Field. Ah, the David Beckham effect, everyone.
Finally, at 10:00 PM CST, reigning Spanish La Liga Champions Real Madrid play reigning Mexican champions (and Fire opponents this September) Santos Laguna in an international friendly in...Las Vegas. Yup, I'm sure all of the players will be totally sober before and after the game. That match will be live on FOX Soccer.
So join us as we mock the Western Conference and celebrate what surely has to be the winding down of the international friendly season in the USA.
