Sound Off is officially going to be renamed as Sound Oba. You all know why. His goal against the San Jose Earthquakes was one of the most audacious and unbelievable goals I have ever seen in all my years of watching soccer. Just unreal. I wish there were 10 links I could find that are just all about him but that may get a bit redundant. Anyway, here’s some links to catch you up on the week that’s just gone by.
