CANARIES IN A COAL MINE? In Sacramento, Marcos Breton notes a Thursday night exhibition match at Raley Field featuring EPL club Norwich City "will be a first" and "could be a milestone in the ultimate goal of bringing" an MLS team to the city. It is "an idea whose time has come." MLS in many ways is "the perfect sports league for Sacramento." The city has "perfect weather for soccer, large immigrant communities and thriving youth leagues in the city and suburbs." Entrepreneur and USL Pro team Owner Warren Smith "hopes a big crowd at Raley Field will begin to make the case that Sacramento has passion for soccer" (SACRAMENTO BEE, 7/16).
