I just bought FM2014 for less than $14 | GreenManGaming
It was time to bite the bullet, now that the third patch is out and the price hit the low teens. Valid only today (March 5, going by USA time I'm assuming), head over to GMG (my referral link if you want to credit us both $2 is this one: GMG) to purchase the key, which you then take to Steam to unlock & download. There's also a 20% code - thanks to Slickdeals - which lowers the price to the aforementioned sub-14 level. Now I only have to download all the usual SortItOutSI improvements (graphics packs and the real name fix) and we'll be ready to rock & roll. Maybe if you're lucky, you'll have the distinct privilege of following my adventures (first game is always Chelsea) in DH updates. A privilege, I says! A distinct privilege! Shut up.

If I'm not mistaken, that's Samuel Eto'o being used to advertise this art exhibition. Anybody know anything more about this? Anybody actually in LA and has gone to see it?

First-hand accounts of (and from) the US Men's National Team & USA '94. Coincidentally, one of my favorite writers/football people Roger Bennett is doing a similar oral history over on ESPN (Part 1, Part 2) It's an oral historyoff!
