Just for Fun Mitchell Family FC
DC United is my favorite domestic club, with Roma & Cork City being my favorite foreign clubs. I also root for Celtic, Tottenham Hotspur, Ajax and a few others.
Though I love the rise in popularity of football in the US, I recognize the need to change the structure of Major League Soccer. Eliminating the two conferences and creating one Major Division, and incorporating a promotion/relegation system will create a more competitive league. Then all expansion clubs immediately join a lower division and earn their way to the Major Division.
My favorite form of football is watching my kids play. My 10 year old son has played park-district level football and thoroughly enjoys it. Bottom line, football is a huge part of my life. Love it!!
