Arroyave Quits

Luis Arroyave announced today that he's quitting as the soccer writer for the Chicago Tribune to become their celebrity/nightlife columnist - something he always had an interest in covering in his blog. As the best source for news about the Fire, he'll be greatly missed. Hopefully this won't mean the end for quality soccer coverage in the Tribune.
