One year ago today Landon Donovan scored arguably the most famous soccer goal in American history.
I don’t even know if I should put “arguably” because I really can’t think of another goal that had a bigger impact on American soccer fans. I was sitting in the waiting room at St. Peter’s Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ and it was cool to see doctors,nurses and other hospital staff filling the waiting room in the final minutes of the game against Algeria. When Donovan scored the place got pretty loud, well louder then it should have gotten in a hospital but it was one of those moments. I wrote about American soccer in detail at the time.

Wednesday brings to us the main event as Barack Obama will stop by Fairleigh Dickenson University in Hackensack. I don’t know how set in stone that venue is. I realize Bergen County is a key region in NJ….but why not hold this rally somewhere you can fit more people? Barack Obama was here back in July and the rally was moved at the time to a bigger location which led to 17,500 people showing up. Why would you not do the same here? Or are they going to do another last minute swap like they did back in July?
