New Contest: Champions League Pick’em

Everybody likes free stuff, especially if that free stuff includes the opportunity to talk smack to friends and enemies. We figured the relaunch of Soccerati.com was a worthy occasion to give something away for just a little effort. All you need do is be able to pick more winners during the Champions League then everyone else.

ESPN is running a Champions League Pick’em contest from the first match through the entire campaign. If you finish with the most points when the latest champion is crowned, we will ship you a jersey from your favorite club. If that club happens to be in the MLS, we reserve the right to mock you while still providing you with free stuff.

The first match is September 18th so get your picks in now. The group is unlocked so players can join later but they will be at a disadvantage (yet still likely to beat most of the Yanks entered). Pass it along, the fun is open to all.

Good luck and see you in there.

We’re Back!

Soccerati.com had a raging start but was then shuttered after a few glorious months of semi-rational Yankee commentary on the beautiful game. Now we’re back, ready to bring you the views/opinions of our various writers, and hope you find it entertaining. Perhaps even a little informative but we’re not holding our breath on that account just yet.

We will kick things off later with a rundown of the U.S Men’s National Team cockup against Jamaica by the left coast’s JoeSpeaker followed by some shiny objects like pretty pictures and videos.

We’re also taking application for contributors to the site, and by applications we mean “if you want to write for us, you’re in”. The current pay rate is a hearty thank-you-very-much until we have things running at top speed and the advertisers begin pouring in.

If you’re interested in participating, shoot an email to Soccerati2012@gmail.com.

Thanks and enjoy!
Team Soccerati
