Tuesday Morning Odds and Sods, Volume 1

  • Steven Goff, apparently the only guy at the WaPo not obsessed with defending Scooter Libby, has been all over the Zinedine Zidane to MLS saga. According to Goff, the Fire have folded, but the Red Bull may indeed call. Big Apple Soccer's excellent interview with reclusive, mysterious, creepily tanned and well-coiffed Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz suggests Zizou, or any other Big International Star, won't be arriving until Red Bull Park opens in 2008.

  • The Red Bull completed the Florida preseason slate with a 3-1-1 record after drawing 1-1 with Real Salt Lake. Dutchman Dave van den Bergh scored his third preseason goal for the Red Bull against Mitt Romney's favorite MLS club.

  • The other Real, have issued the first of what will be many Fabio Ain't Fired Yet announcements. C'mon Madrid, we all know Fredo's goin' fishin'.

  • Who needs pitchers and catchers? A Cuban defector has signed with an MLS club. All we need now is Jason Kreis testing positive for steroids and we can become America's National Pastime!
