R.I.P California Victory
What's sadder...this tiny gaggle of men that passed for a supporters group or the damn-near silent death of 1st year USL side California Victory? I slept on this bit of news last week as I was gearing up for a Turkey-induced coma, but thought it was still worth putting out there.
Like the Toronto Lynx, their lunch was eaten the day that MLS announced it was coming to the area. This leaves USL 1 with only 11 clubs for 2008, and with Seattle leaving in 09 for MLS may be a serious blow for the league that already lost one club (Virginia Beach) at the beginning of 07. Hopefully the talk of an expansion club in Victoria, BC and one other city will come to fruition and keep this boat afloat.
