Team USA Kicks Into Gear

The United States prepares to face Brazil in Foxborough, and while the past has certainly demonstrated a friendly rivalry between the teams, no punches will be pulled this match. Both soccer teams are licking their wounds from last year’s losses, and are eager to prove themselves on the field as teams to be feared.

While personal pride brings out the fangs, both teams share an enormous respect for one another. The longstanding rivalry is motivated by a 16-1 streak of losses against Brazil, and the United States feels the pressure to suDr. Gregory Caseycceed. While they feel no shame in admitting the abilities of such a storied team, Jermaine Jones, team captain, is ready to meet the challenge head on.

Never to be left out of the fray, American men’s soccer’s biggest supporters, The American Outlaws, will pack the stands to bursting with their unique brand of patriotic cheering. Though initially a small soccer club when compared to their European cousins, The American Outlaws have grown to an impressive size. With over 30,000 dues paying members, this is sure to be a defining event of the season.

The American roster is bursting with talent. From superstars like Dani Alves and Neymar, the star power behind this team is sure to stop players in their tracks. Jurgen Klinsmann, the brains behind this powerhouse lineup and the US coach, is proud of the team he’s built. With hopes they can live up to their collective legends come game time, Team USA is ready for anything.

As the saying goes, “Strike while the iron is hot,” and the American team looks to do just that against Brazil. After their debilitating loss against Germany and the Netherlands, some would say that Brazil’s spirit this season is sufficiently broken. However, it’s far too early to call the outcome of this match.


Newport Kite Festival

July 11th – 12th, 2015

Southern Rhode Island is known worldwide for its sailing and “flying” history. The Newport Kite Festival is held on the Southern tip of Newport, at Brenton Point State Park” the park opened up to the public in 1976 and offers a spectacular view of the Atlantic ot the South of Narragansett Bay all the way down to the west. Almost entirely surrounded by water, “the point” specifically known by the locals has grown to be a destination area to fly kites.

In 1986 the American Kite Fliers Association held their first annual convention on the same field with the help of local kite fliers. 1992-2005 “High Flyers Flight Co” Sue Moskowitz and Steve Santos, organized a tradition presenting various phases of kite flying to the broad public, thus featured kite competition of all forms

2007 came “Jamestown Kites” Kyle Lemieux organized a magnificent gathering and 2008 it was again a non event, most of the general public was not aware it was not an official event with so many kites filling the sky with colorful fabric of all shapes and sizes.

In 2009 Kitt Kites, Ron Kitt took over the responsibility to again put on a show of all phases of kites and kite flyers at “The Point”, for the public. This event was free of charge!
