Onyewu Joins A.C. Milan

Onyewu signing with Milan is a big step for US Soccer

Oguchi Onyewu had a big Confederations Cup tournament and it paid off in a large way by signing with Italian football powerhouse AC Milan. This will only matter if Gooch gets a legitimate chance to play. There have been quite a few USMNT players that have not had a lot of playing time with their European clubs (Altidore and Adu being the most notable) and it has shown in their recent national team appearances. If Gooch plays often and plays well expect more and more looks from the large Euro clubs to US players.


Ant mega-colony takes over world
Matt Walker

While ants are usually highly territorial, those living within each super-colony are tolerant of one another, even if they live tens or hundreds of kilometres apart. Each super-colony, however, was thought to be quite distinct.

Really cool story on how these Argentine ants made it all over the world. Very interesting stuff.
