 03/04/2015 - 12:04

Traditionally, it is held on a Sunday during the month of September. This year, however, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon will be pushed back a month, specifically until October 31.

Pope Francis’ visit to the city, to participate in the World Meeting of Families, to be held from September 22 -27, and the resulting number of visitors this event will produce, has forced the organization to move the date of the race to the month of October. Another novelty in this year’s race is the suppression of the 5K event.

The 2014 FIFA World Cup has ended and in many ways, the questions surrounding United States soccer are the same as when the tournament began.

A lot of people, both those who are long-time familiar with the USA program and those who were just on board for the quadrennial party, have questioned what exactly did the United State team do in Brazil that it did not do four years ago in South Africa?

Fanáticos estadounidenses sufren tras un intento fallido de gol durante los último minutos del juego entre EE.UU. y Alemania el 26 de junio de 2014.

La Copa Mundial de la FIFA 2014 ha terminado, y de muchas maneras, las preguntas en torno al fútbol en Estados Unidos son las mismas que cuando se inició el torneo. 

Una gran cantidad de personas, tanto las que están familiarizadas desde hace mucho tiempo con el programa de EE.UU. como los que estaban a bordo sólo por la fiesta cuatrienal, han cuestionado ¿qué fue exactamente lo que el equipo de Estados Unidos hizo en Brasil, que no hizo hace cuatro años en Sudáfrica?

As I try to sit here and contemplate a common theme or fabric for how I would summarize the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, I am having a hard time focusing as it is the day after Germany scored a “touchdown” against the host nation in their 7-1 semifinal shellacking of Brazil. Just to put things into perspective, until yesterday, Brazil had not lost on home soil during their previous 63 matches, dating back to a 1975 Cope America tourney loss against Peru.
