It’s been pretty quiet ’round these parts the last week or so. No new posts on the blog in over a week, and there wasn’t a new podcast out this week either. For the limited few of you who consider yourselves “WSOTP Superfans” — Hi, Mom! — hopefully I’ve not left you suffering from withdrawal symptoms. It’s almost as disappointing as the USMNT against Brazil the other night.
Trust, however, that I do have a plan… which I’m not sure we can say about Klinsmann and the national team.
For the gear heads out there, I’m currently scribbling my first ever boot comparison piece about the Nike Magista Obra’s and the adidas Ace 15.1’s. The first new shirt to be added to the WSOTP Shop in over a year will likely go up, and I’ve also begun work on a line of MLS shirts, too. For you local kids, I’ve got something cool up my sleeve for FC Cincinnati. And believe it or not, I might even have some more breaking news to reveal in short order.
So in short, my apologies for being so negligent in my blogging duties recently. But as always, the wait should be worth it. Key word there being “should”. In the mean time, have some links that may or may not keep you satisfied until then.
