How about a thread in which we can share news stories about good things associated with soccer -- anything that involves both soccer and making people's lives better. I would probably not include stuff sponsored by City Group, NYCFC, or supporters groups, not because they're not important and deserving but because they deserve to be specially featured in a more prominent way in the forum.

We also don't necessarily need to discuss these items (although discussion certainly isn't forbidden) and I truly hope it doesn't lead to debate. I'm not making rules, either, just creating an idea I hope can lead other to post stuff here for the rest of the forum to read and perhaps get a smile or be inspired.

I will start off in the next post.
