Some sad news came out of the Texas area this afternoon when three people were killed and multiple people wounded by a gunman just a few blocks from the Texas A&M campus in College Station.

The shooter has since been taken into custody but not before Texas A&M issued a Code Maroon – the university’s emergency notification system — at 12:29 p.m., telling people to avoid the area where there was a report of an “active shooter.”

Texas A&M soccer coach G Guerrieri sent out the following tweet:

It’s about to get real. College soccer officially begins this week (like, real actual games, not the fake ones we promote because we can’t wait) and I couldn’t be more excited. I feel like Sydney Leroux right now.

TopDrawerSoccer.com released its women’s rankings this morning, which you should definitely check out, and the 91st Minute is hereby dropping its own rankings preview we’ve titled: 10 reasons to be excited for college soccer.

We’ll countdown the top 10 from now until the ladies kickoff on Friday. Here are reasons No. 9 & 10:

 

10. DeAndre Yedlin’s hair: Here’s my complicated rule on crazy hairstyles – don’t do it. Unless, you’re a baller and you can pull it off. And just so you know, Akron’s DeAndre Yedlin is a baller who can pull it off. Yedlin was one of the top freshman in the country last season and made PDL All-League this past summer. So if he wants to rock a do that’s a cross between Neymar and Foghorn Leghorn: we support, I say, we support the man!

 

9. Florida State’s new mascot, Cimarron: As good as the Seminoles will be this year (and we expect them to be really good), don’t be surprised if Cimarron steals the show. He’s already been hanging out with the FSU cheer squad all summer (lucky dog … I mean …)  and if he somehow manages to connect with the world’s most famous ‘baby horse’ … well, that’ll be game over.

Just when we thought Hope Solo had already bared it all (see what I did there?) …

The USWNT’s most polarizing player is dishing out the scoop Tuesday when her new book “SOLO: a Memoir of Hope” hits the shelves. Solo doesn’t pull any punches as she talks about her infamous interview on former teammate Brianna Scurry and how that led to a cat fight with her and veterans like Kristine Lilly and Abby Wambach. (Some of the details might explain how things came to THIS).

Check out one of the juiciest excerpts from the book via espnW. If you can read you may want to give this book a skim (and if you can’t, then: alkdfjaldjfladkaldjla … just kidding).

Adding to the list of USMNT players showing great form, Jozy Altidore put on a show as he recently scored twice for AZ Alkmaar in a 2-2 draw with Ajax.

And these weren’t just nice finishes by Atidore, either. He shows off great play-making during both sequences: first, with a nasty cutback then a backheel pass that set up a through ball.

Duuuude, they’re back! To be honest with you, I couldn’t care less about Michael Phelps, The “Dream Team 5″ or the baby gymnasts; the only team I care about comes from Great Britain and speaks the language of pop star – oh yes, The Spice Girls!

And it was only fitting that the real Dream Team shut down the Olympics with a performance worthy of five gold medals. You would’ve thought David Beckham arriving at the Olympics in a motorboat while holding a massive torch would be tough to beat in the Beckham household, but old Beck Spice was shown up by his wife yet again – and I loved every minute of it. Make it last forever, friendship never ends.

Now if we can just get ‘N Sync, The Fugees and Hanson to get back together we’ll be onto something (wait, Hanson still exists? Never mind).

Thanks to Soccer Cleats 101, we have a striking look (pun intended) at the new Pele Trinity 3E SHEONE from Pele Sports.

The new boots are a limited edition designed by London based artist James Choules, and will hit the shelves for a price tag of $199.99.

These are about as artsy as anything you’ll see on the pitch. Check out an inside look at the shoe after the jump.

As soccer players we always assume that kicking field goals would be pretty easy. We play soccer our whole life and are constantly kicking the ball. I mean how hard could it really be? Sergio Ramos was finally put to the test.

Real Madrid is finishing up their international friendly tour and the team had a stop at Lincoln Financial field, home of the Philadelphia Eagles. Ramos steps up and sinks the 53 yard kick right down the middle. Note that the Eagle announcer calls Ramos a ‘kicker’ for the team…SMH

manchester united fans

 

According to the Associated Press:

Manchester United made a disappointing debut on the New York Stock Exchange on Friday, even after opening at a discounted price, with enthusiasm for the Glazer family’s English soccer team overshadowed by its debt load and financial track record.

Apparently, people/fans are smarter than they look, because while Manchester United might be popular, they certainly aren’t profitable.  They also haven’t told fans that these shares aren’t really giving them ownership:

After the stock offering, the Glazers will keep control of the team through Class B shares that have 10 times the voting power of the stock sold to the public.

The only positive that came from the day was the creation of the coolest stock ticker: MANU.
