Landon and Barack kick it in the White House

It was all about Los Angeles at the White House this afternoon. The LA Galaxy and LA Kings were in America’s capital getting recognition as the 2012 MLS Cup champions and Stanley Cup Champions, respectively.

Landon Donovan’s self-imposed soccer exile sabbatical from the game has grown tiresome, but with the US playing Mexico tonight at the Azteca, Obama asked Landon, "You wanna take Air Force One to Mexico City? We can still make it. Just say the word." Landon politely declined, which prompted Barack Obama to pick up the ball and get on Air Force One to put the team on his back.* [*that 2nd part may or may not have happened]

Election Night Special - AFR Voice: Episode 5

In what has been a historic week for American politics, AFR Voice is here to count the ballot papers of world football and see who have been the real winners and losers this week.

We’ll be getting things started with the audio equivalent of shaking hands and kissing numerous babies as we get bleary eyed about the first round of this year’s FA Cup, the return of Big Mick McCarthy to football management, before having it out in an untelevised debate on the diving issue, featuring special guest - Olympic diver Tom Daley (not technically a guest on the show, but we do talk about him a bit).

Then it’s off to canvas support on the key battle ground that is the MLS playoffs – can LA pull things back against San Jose after conceding a right stinker of a free kick late in the first leg, just how many more own goals do DC United and the New York Red Bulls have up their sleeves, and will we see a goal in a match between Seattle and Real Salt Lake ever again?

After that, it’s back to the political stronghold that is Europe where Roma have been holding up trains, Zlatan has been kicking people again, Inter have been ruining the party in Turin, and how for a fraction of a Presidential campaign budget, you can own part of a Spanish football club.

As always, you can contact the team on Twitter @AFRvoice, or by emailing afrvoice@gmail.com. You can also subscribe to AFR Voice on iTunes, follow us on Soundcloud, and find past episodes on the site hereGet involved, vote or die, etc…
