The occasion of Carolina Morace's hiring as coach of Canada's women's soccer team is as good a time as any to note Rollins is going strong at The 24th minute, his spin-off soccer blog.
Duane was out front on Morace coming to Canada back in November, posing the question with respect to Morace and the Canadian Soccer Association: "Is the CSA serious about change? Or, is it just going to be the same old, same old. How the organization handles this hiring will answer that question." He'll be there at the press conference this afternoon.
A lot has to happen with the national body beyond the hiring of a coach, but speaking as a footy dilettante, Morace is a step in that direction.
Meantime, it apparently did not work out between the L.A. Galaxy and David Beckham. No one saw that coming.
