also, it turns out that this blog is written more for me than it is for you. That's why many posts are more comprehensive (long) than entertaining (readable).

Dempsey's Historic EPL Hat Trick
In Fulham's league match vs Newcastle today, Clint Dempsey scored 3 goals to record the first hat trick by an American in the English Premier League. It was actually his 2nd hat trick of the season, as he first set that mark vs Charlton in the FA Cup just 14 days ago. As of today, he's scored an astounding 15 goals across all competitions (9 EPL goals), a career record. He also crossed the 50 goal milestone today for Fulham, now with 52 (42 EPL goals).
Dempsey was also awarded the US Soccer Federation's Player of the Year. He last won it in 2007.
