Help CFC Azul choose their new uniforms!
Connecticut Football Club Azul is Connecticut’s Newest Soccer Franchise. They put a great emphasis on the fans and want the supporters to help decide the new CFC uniforms. Check them out on facebook for a chance to voice your own thoughts about the design of their new kits.
Also get a chance to meet the owners at the Inaugural CFC Supporters Club Meet Up at the Extra Time Bar at CFC Arena in Hamden on Thursday, February 2nd. Festivities start at 7pm. The address is listed at 1018 Sherman Ave, Hamden, CT. Right next to Quinnipiac University, off Exit 10 on I-91
Join us at the first ever supporters club meet up for CFC Azul, Connecticut’s only soccer franchise. It should be a really good chance for locals to meet the people involved at the club and other fans. CFC Azul looks to build from some of the other soccer franchises in the U.S. and considers its fans to be the most important.
Things to be Discussed at the First Meet Up:
- An Official Name for the CFC Azul Supporters Club to be Decided On by Fans
- Official Songs for Connecticut FC Azul that are All About Connecticut and Written by You
- A Chance to Meet with the Club’s Owner and Staff and Ask Questions about CFC
- A Chance to Design and Request T-Shirts and other merchandise to be produced for CFC Azul
- An Opportunity to be at an Inaugural Meeting of a Football Club
- Most Importantly: an Opportunity to Meet Fans from All Over the State to Talk Football, and Enjoy Soccer
For those of us who love the beautiful game in the U.S. and in Connecticut, we don’t always get the opportunity to talk to people who love the game as much as we do. Here’s your chance to be surrounded by people who know the difference between the Champions League and the World Cup, The Offside Rule and Stoppage Time, Liverpool vs Manchester United, La Liga and Ligue 1. Yes, they know Messi, Rooney & Ronaldo, but can also talk about Silva, Gerrard, Malouda, Lampard, Bale, Modric, Xavi, Iniesta, Schweinsteiger, Gotze, Ozil, Ramos, Pique, Terry, Kompany, Lahm, Mexes, Ibrahimovic, Pato, Sneijder, Milito, and the list goes on and on and on and on….
This is something that can bring all those who love soccer in Connecticut together. The more we build, the bigger the network of fans we’ll be, and the bigger impact we’ll have.
MLS is Connecticut’s Best Chance at a Sustainable Professional Sports Franchise.
It Starts in the USL PDL, and we work our way up from there.
Be There From The Start. - Connecticut Football Club Azul WANTS YOU
Join Us February 2nd at the CFC Arena in Hamden, from 7pm on into the Night. It’s a chance to meet people who share the same passion as you do and to talk about the sport. It doesn’t get any better than that over a pint of beer.
Hope to see you all there.
I don’t get political, this is not a political blog. But sometimes something so big and so egregious happens in the world that a person would be doing society a disservice by not talking about it. SOPA effects all of us, and all of us should know what it is.
What is SOPA? If you want a clear understanding about SOPA, check out Gizmodo’s article here for a detailed explanation of SOPA and its ripple effect of consequences.
Essentially, if SOPA were passed it would allow government officials to remove any site it deems to infringe copy right laws in the United States. That means google, reddit, tumblr, twitter, facebook etc could all cease to exist at the same hands of the greedy U.S. government, the same hands who ruined our economy and lost a lot of jobs. Why? Well, that’s the best part.
The thing that makes SOPA so disturbing is because of why it’s even being proposed in the first place. Big movie studios, television networks, and record companies are sick about their information being available for free to those who can find it on the internet. Even if this information is from outside the United States. Essentially, they hate the guy in Berlin who can only torrent Terra Nova online because no one’s heard of it in Germany anyway. Because of this, they’re using their friends in Congress to generate a bill that will enable attack on anyone (including you) who uses their copyrighted material without permission. This could even include photos of your favorite actor, sports team, or youtube clip.
Essentially SOPA gives the government the power to swoop down and remove sites from the internet without needing permission from search engines like Google. Basically, if Google does not comply by removing infringing websites, Google can be shut down too.
SOPA also has dangerous future consequences for use of the internet in the future. Essentially, it could end up creating something like the Great Firewall of China in the U.S. The firewall in China is what the Chinese government uses to keep their citizens in the dark about what’s going on in the world, and only gives people what the government allows them to know.
Rupert Murdoch and FOX already influence enough of our thoughts as it is, Fox News, Fox Sports, Fox cinema, OK Magazine, TMZ, The Wall Street Journal, etc are all owned by Murdoch. Murdoch is an outspoken supporter of SOPA, and would have in enacted tomorrow. Why? Because he’s the only guy losing money. The big corporate whale. Even if Murdoch got SOPA, extras in his shows would still get minimum wage.
I would be blacking out Know Your Football New Haven today along with my favorite website, and favorite people. But El Clasico is on later in the day and I can’t miss that. Keep in mind that my site infringes on SOPA so bad, it would be one of the infinite number of sites up for removal now, and in the future.
So if you read this today, STOP SOPA. Keep the internet as open as your eyes, and do not allow yourself to be deceived by corporations influencing governments. Keep your eyes open, and remember this on election day.
OK, no more political stuff.
These are OUR streets…
OUR students and children…
