Of tattoos and voodoo and science ... and soccer
My calendar says March 1. But, quite possibly, global warming has advanced things. The weather is spring-like and there is a hint of April 1 in the air. Or so it seems to me.

"Everyone knew in the 50s and 60s and 70s that St. Louis was a frontrunner in the sport. It developed great players, had a great following. Many cities around the country tried to mimic St. Louis and many years later we have 100 St. Louises or more in the United States. I think St. Louis soccer gave everyone else an impetus to try to match them and be good at the sport and I think it's taken off tremendously and I think that's one of the reasons we're here today."

-- U.S. national team coach Bruce Arena, who was in St. Louis on federation business, at a gathering with soccer fans at a local bar. (St. Louis Post-Dispatch)
