We commonly cut Miami FC slack because the team is new. Thats probably misguided, considering the club is owned by Traffic Sports. You know the Copa America and Copa Sudamericana? That Traffic Sports. The South American power broker owns more, including our fledgling heroes, whose fearless leader is Romário, star of Brazils 1994 World Cup winners. New? Hes been playing professional soccer for 21 years. Its time to start pushing FC, which at press time was near the middle of the standings with 20 points. Tonights opponents, the Puerto Rico Islanders, were tied for fifth place with 24 points. Its been fun reveling in the relative success, but this is Miami. Time to start winning ´em all, boys. Tickets range from $6 (children) to $25 for the 7:30 game. Get your kicks at Tropical Park Stadium. Call 305-377-2700, or visit www.miamifc.com.
