Photo The team that calls Avaya Stadium home usually wears blue, but red turned out to be the color of the MLS All-Star Game.

Castillo goes, MLS loses
The Turkish city of Trabzon holds a cherished place in my thoughts. Not that I've ever been there, or will ever go. But in my youth I read a most wonderful novel, "The Towers of Trebizond" -- and the ancient town with the lovely name of Trebizond has lost none of its attraction for me by becoming a modern Turkish town with an ugly name that sounds like a prescription drug -- Trabzon.

"I was playing against players I played with on FIFA when I was younger  -- [Didier] Drogba, [David] Villa, [Andrea] Pirlo -- players that you watch in World Cups and in big tournaments. I just think. 'Wow, I want to get to that standard.’"

-- Arsenal's 20-year-old forward, Chuba Akpom, the unlikely MVP of the 2016 AT&T MLS All-Star Game with the winning goal in the 87th minute for the Gunners.
