It's all in the Translation

Things are going swimingly with Red Bull New York. Red Bull's offer to road trip a load of fans for the opener against United is exactly the type of smart, reach-out to the fans that not only shows why MLS was eager to introduce them as owners in the league, but will shortly make memories of the Metros days seem not as painful.

The only interesting story I've heard is AEG's polite suggestion to Red Bull that they don't name the new soccer stadium, Red Bull Arena. AEG explained that in the United States that the word arena tends to have a connotation of a small, indoor facility - where in other languages it translates into a big stadium. So AEG has pushed them to Red Bull Park.
