Time to Kick Some Grass

We commonly cut Miami FC slack because the team is new. That’s 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 Brazil’s 1994 World Cup winners. New? He’s been playing professional soccer for 21 years. It’s time to start pushing FC, which at press time was near the middle of the standings with 20 points. Tonight’s opponents, the Puerto Rico Islanders, were tied for fifth place with 24 points. It’s 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
