TSG Corporate: Need Your Support, Not Money

Hey re-running this little piece here with a few updates….and a big thank you to all that helped last time.

I’ve decided to make it into a running checklist. First come the things we still need to do; then come the things we completed.

I’ve patterned it after the San Francisco Chronicle’s “ChronicleWatch” which calls out public works projects that need to be completed, who is responsible and how long the project has been on the list.

In this case, me….well I’m always the responsible one. That didn’t come out right. Anywho….



We’ve got three pieces coming up that need your input, they are:

Your favorite goal call:  We teased this piece in the comment section. Got a favorite announcer, a favorite goal call. Email us and let us know why and include a link to the video or audio.  Completed? Need lots of help (Weeks On List: 1)

Email Matthew, Subject: Favorite goal

Make a player famous post: I’m super excited for this feature and if you like it, I might make it permanent. Real simple. Send in a story *and a photo of your favorite non-famous soccer player. It could be your brother, a friend, a player at a rival college or high school or it could be someone you played with in the past.  Completed? Need lots of help (Weeks On List: 1)

Tell us in 100 words of so what makes them your favorite, or makes their soccer skill famous.

I’m excited because I know who TSG’s first entry is going to be here and the story I’m going to tell.

Help Needed Completed? √

• Any chance you are or know a cartoonist? Well we’re looking for one and not just because we’re not funny.

Needed by May 1st.

• Do you speak or write another language (French and/or Spanish primarily). If so, we want to know (and could use the help).


• First note, a lot of comments gets sent to our spam folder. So just email us and we’ll take a look if something went missing.

• A lot of newbies on TSG lately. Awesome! Three simple guidelines to comments: 1) Try and keep it non-personal 2) Respect everyone’s opinion 3) Back up your opinions with examples, points or data. Thanks.

And thanks for reading/listening here.

  1. I saw the word “corporate” next to your blog in my inbox this morning and feared the worst: I thought you were going to ask for donations… pity, I was ready to contribute, lol.

    I work at a hospital, one of the spanish interpreters in the emergency dept. is a cartoonist/artist/drawer. Is the work paid? I’d pass the request for help along… (FYI – He’s extremely talented, no amateur).

    I don’t speak Spanish primarily but since my mom comes to Mexico i do understand and speak it. Where the problem lies is that I have no experience writing it.

    Love the site. My girlfriend is from Spain and would be interested in helping out. Also, I have a friend who is a pretty respected cartoonist, I will ask him if he would be interested in helping in that regard.

    I visit the site several times a day. I graduated with a degree in Spanish and currently teaching English in Spain. I would be willing in helping with anything Spanish related.
