    Using the four hour weather delay at last night's RailHawks game to support his case, the writer of the article below seems to think MLS won't place a team in the southeast out of concern for summer storms. Maybe there are more important issues besides weather?

    If they were, then why would they put a team in Kansas City, right in the middle of Tornado Alley?

    Why would they put a team in Houston which, just prior to the Dynamo's arrival, had suffered a rash of intense hurricanes? (Remember Wilma in 2005? I know, with Katrina the same year, it's hard.)

    Why would they bother with California (and the rest of the Pacific coast, for that matter) and their constant earthquake threat?

    I'm with you. "Support his story" and "Bleacher Report" go together and I hope they have a long happy life. I just don't want them moving in next door.

    The short answer: weather is, like death, inevitable. And if it's not this guy, it'll be some other part-time junior college student who extols the virtues of switching to the international calendar, as if Chicago and Foxboro are pristine oases of perfect weather in the winter.

    Like anyone with the desire to leave message board posts on message boards instead of on a website purveying them as news should...minus the apology.
