With Atlanta and Minnesota joining the league this year and Los Angeles FC and hopefully Miami joining next year, MLS has laid out a timeline for announcing teams 25-28 within the next year or so. Here are the four cities I hope earn an expansion team soon.

FIFA voted on Tuesday to increase the number of teams in the World Cup from 32 to 48, and in doing so showed they care more about money than the quality of the tournament. Way to ruin the tournament, FIFA.

The U.S. Soccer Federation is expected to make a decision on what division the NASL and USL will be in next season, which could be the death knell for the NASL. But the USSF wouldn't be in this position if it worked more to support all leagues and not just the top one, MLS.

Ah yes, the new year. That time when everyone makes resolutions that they might keep for a couple of weeks. Like I did last year, here are a few WordPress resolutions I hope to keep throughout 2017.

Saturday saw the Seattle Sounders win the MLS Cup final without a single shot on goal, but that wasn't my biggest takeaway from the match. Instead, watching sports in virtual reality might be way closer than you think.

David Beckham has struggled to make any headway on an MLS team in Miami for a couple of years. Now, with LAFC needing a partner to join the league with in 2018 and much better expansion options, it's time for MLS to move on from Miami and move forward with Sacrament, Cincinnati or even St. Louis for expansion.

My apologies for the Cowboys losing, but FC Dallas' 2017 campaign begins in just under two months. The team faces Árabe Unido in the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals in 37 days and starts its MLS season in 46 days. Oh, and it might just be the best roster the team has had in recent years.

My new daily blog WordPress theme, Quotidiano, is ready to be released. But considering it utilizes the WP REST API and the lack of knowledge of what it takes to get that kind of theme through the review process, I'm holding off on moving it to the theme directory for the time being.

If you think soccer is "boring", then I highly suggest you watch it's cousin, indoor soccer. It's the soccer and hockey hybrid that turns out to be quite exciting.

As I've worked with the WP REST API, I've seen a lot of really good tutorials over the basics, but not a lot that deal with slightly more complicated topics that are easily implemented in the typical WordPress template. This tutorial over threaded comments in the WP REST API hopefully starts to fill that void.

WordPress 4.7 dropped on Tuesday after much anticipation. The newest release doesn't change the game, but it's another strong step in the right direction for the content management system.

Well, it's finally here. I've finished up development on the premium WordPress sports package I've worked on since May and it's time to release it to the public. Now it's time to work on some other things.
