The Second Coming of Ken Horowitz

MagicJack

Once upon a time there was a guy in South Florida who wanted a soccer team, so he bought one. His name was Ken Horowitz and he was as shady as a South Beach palm. His team was the Miami Fusion and we all know how that went.

Today there is another guy in South Florida who wanted a soccer team, so he bought one. His name is Dan Borislaw and he owns Magic Jack, a product you may know from its incessant late-night commercials. He wants his newly-acquired Washington Freedom to split games between Maryland & South Florida, remove any civic affiliation from the name and call it MagicTalk " SC or FC or something like that."

I'm not a follower of WPS but this is just sad stuff for the league. On the plus side though it looks like you'll finally get your top-level soccer team Miami Ultras (but for how long who knows).

Hey, if he wants to pump money into womens soccer more power to him. I went to one L.A. Sol game during their one year of existence. The cheapest face-value ticket was $20, still think womens soccer could have worked in l.a., just not at ticket prices nearly triple the cheapest Dodger ticket.

One thing that I don't like about soccer as business. it is that it is accessible for people that they should avoid it.
