When a teenager began his path to become a writer, though he didnít know it at the time

Remembering an 11th grade English teacher who offered so much encouragement to a 16-year-old many years ago.

DiCicco would make a good candidate to replace Sermanni

During his conference call with the media on Monday, U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati said that he had a short list of candidates to replace the departed Tom Sermanni as U.S. women's national coach.

OFFSIDE REMARKS
Struggling and winless Red Bulls are far from firing on all cylinders

Four weeks into the season and the Red Bulls are winless, not unlike last year. Actually, they are ahead of the pace with three points accrued thanks to three 1-1 draws as compared to a 0-2-2 mark and two points in 2013.

OFFSIDE REMARKS
No panic, but a lot of concern over some Red Bulls players

Even with a 4-1 loss at the Vancouver Whitecaps, the Red Bulls' worst season-opening result in their 19-year history, there was no reason to jump out the window. But there is some concern about some players.

Chivas USA: an end of an error in southern California

No tears were shed here in New York when it was announced that Major League Soccer had purchased Chivas USA from Jorge Vergara and Angelica Fuentes on Thursday.

OFFSIDE REMARKS
A special Valentine to the most beautiful game

With Friday being Valentine's Day, my thoughts obviously turn to love.

OFFSIDE REMARKS
Making sport of the snow

This column isn't exactly about soccer, but with the Winter Olympics going full blast and another snowstorm hitting the area, I figured that this story was quite appropriate to post.

OFFSIDE REMARKS
Kreis is ready for the pressure of New York and challenge of coaching an expansion team

Yours truly had the honor of welcoming Jason Kreis to New York Friday. "Welcome to New York," I told Kreis during a press conference in midtown Manhattan. "Why haven't you won a game yet? Like I said, welcome to New York."

OFFSIDE REMARKS
Bradley joining Toronto is good for MLS, but is it good for Bradley and USMNT?

Michael Bradley is heading to Toronto FC, huh? Well, that's certainly good for Toronto FC and certainly good for Major League Soccer. But how good is that for Michael Bradley as a soccer player and the U.S. National Team, particularly heading into a World Cup year?

OFFSIDE REMARKS
Remembering the Black Panther

Eusebio, one of the greatest soccer players to run on and walk this planet, died on Sunday. He was 71. Not many writers can say it, but yours truly got an opportunity to watch him play in person at the end of his career.

OFFSIDE REMARKS
Only time will tell whether Klinsmann's early contract extension really makes sense

Well, that was certainly a surprise: extending a coach's contract before the World Cup and not after it. Then again, Jurgen Klinsmann isn't exactly your everyday national team coach.

Getting ready for my personal MLS Cup No. 18

This editor prepares to cover his 18th MLS Cup -- in Kansas City, Kansas this Saturday.

OFFSIDE REMARKS
A 50th anniversary that is far from golden

Somewhere, somewhere in my parents' basement on Long Island, there is a rectangular plastic, green pencil case with probably some old, crumbling pencils and erasers inside, accompanied, an old, small news clipping from a November 1963 edition of Newsday.

OFFSIDE REMARKS
Caligiuri looks back at the goal that changed the course of American soccer history

This is a repost of a BigAppleSoccer.com story that has been updated. If Paul Caligiuri hadn't scored "The Goal" 24 years ago today, I probably wouldn't be writing this column, or perhaps any soccer column, for that matter. And Caligiuri wouldn't have enjoyed a Hall of Fame soccer career domestically and abroad.

OFFSIDE REMARKS
The Thierry Henry era is running out of time

With the Red Bulls trailing 2-1 and their season running out of time in the 118th minute Wednesday night, Thierry Henry stepped up to take a 22-yard free kick, the most important direct kick he would attempt this season.

Memo to Red Bulls and Cosmos fans: enjoy the ride, moments like this don't come around very often

Let's face it. In the past two decades or so, metro area pro soccer fans haven't had much to cheer about. Now, we have not one, but two pro teams that are on the verge of making some history.

WCQ picks: Mexico will find a way to squeak in -- by a goal

The day of reckoning for three CONCACAF teams is here. So many questions, and a few answers.

WCQ PICKS
Mexico hasn't shown it can draw up a home win, Honduras is on verge, U.S. should oust Jamaica

Even with the United States and Costa Rica already securing their spots at Brazil 2014, there still is plenty of drama ahead on Day 9 of the CONCACAf hexagonal in World Cup qualifying.

OFFSIDE REMARKS
The Donovan factor: 'He's a guy that when he's on the field puts fear in the opponent'

Three is little doubt that the U.S. National Team needs Landon Donovan and Landon Donovan needs the U.S. National Team.
