Zev Taublieb, of Valparaiso University recently once interned for TopDrawerSoccer.com and now is back on the pitch. He was most well known for his 1v1 interviews with MLS players and future MLS professional prospects.

Now he is on the road to becoming an MLS player himself. He is the captain at Valparaiso University and is currently playing for the Seattle Sounders U23 side. On Friday night he scored a scorcher of a goal.

He accredits much of his success on the field with his internship at TDS. Zev explains, “my internship at TopDrawerSoccer.com gave me the opportunity to learn how to communicate my ideas in a clear & confident fashion. Being able to communicate clearly and sufficiently can be the difference between winning and losing or on the other hand making a profit or not making a profit. I am grateful for my time at TDS and would love to return someday.”

This idiot decided to charge the ref and hit him with a direct headbutt right before getting a red card. Luckily, the ref somehow manages to get back up. Hopefully this guy gets slapped with a long suspension. He needs a time-out to think about what he’s done. Idiot.

Sport Illustrated brought out the heavyweights for their World Cup issues. I really want to know what Suarez was thinking about right when that picture was taken. We’ll never know.

It’s an extremely strange sight when a country that loves the beautiful game as much as Brazil, depicts imagery of not wanting it. In the end it’s just a game. Poverty, famine & hunger are real life.
