A 1,400-mile road trip from Texas to West Virginia in a 14-foot furniture truck made this a rather grueling week for TSO. Here’s a few things that made the all-too-frequent pit stops rather more enjoyable:
— An Argentine filmmaker’s project on Brooklyn Knights of the United Soccer League’s PDL, by the New York Times’ Jack Bell
— The Detroit News on Michigan Bucks’ shock U.S. Open Cup third-round win over Chicago Fire
— The Scotsman’s take on Scotland’s “comprehensive drubbing” from the United States in Jacksonville, Fla.
— A quick rundown on Poland’s roster ahead of next week’s Euro 2012 commencement
— Scotland’s Daily Record reveals which Scottish Premier League goalkeeper signed a contract on a par with David Beckham’s wages
— Darlington Football Club, founded in 1883, slips into intensive care with fans vowing that “the life support machine will never be switched off”
— And, finally, footage from third-tier Harrisburg City Islanders’ amazing comeback win over New England Revolution in the U.S. Open Cup
