BLANCO REPLACES DE ROSARIO
Dwayne De Rosario decided to skip the All-Star game for TFC's CONCACAF Champions League match against Puerto Rico. A wise choice from DDR... I am happy that he is skipping the All-Star game to play for TFC, he did afterall decline on the opportunity to play for Canada at the Gold Cup, so why not decline for a match of lesser importance. If Dwayne decided to play in the All-Star game, it would simply have been a major kick in the teeth for both TFC fans AND Canadian soccer fans.
The full story is on DeRo skipping the All-Star game is here. DeRo will be replaced with the 2008 All-Star Game Most Valuable Player, Chicago Fire midfielder Cuauhtémoc Blanco.
