Rapid Response

So our friend and fellow poster Jason Maxwell has a blog that’s pretty good.  Although, if you’re not an MLS fan or Colorado Rapids supporter, you’ll probably get less out of it.  I wonder if his non-soccer friends don’t read his blog, either.  Anyway, since Jason is a Rapids fan, …

MLS in LA – Marvel Two-In-One

I can’t say enough good things about Alicia Ratterree at The Goat Parade this week, a site I thought would have as much impact on my life as GreatTajikShortstops.com.  Or, for that matter, cdchivasusa.com.  Reaction to the news that Chivas USA will change its name to Literally Anything Else FC …

Kill Your Television

Should I have told people I was going to miss a few days?  Probably.  Should I have picked a less eventful week? Praps. But we’ll get to the Gold Cup in a tad.  The whole tournament is just another excuse for a US-Mexico payday anyway. I stole this kid’s Leapster …

Slow news week

Apparently some group of people in Bavaria have conquered Europe.  But as an American, I don’t have time for that.  Maybe I’ll get around to it in a year or two. So, the US National Team played another game, and there was another run on anti-depressants.  We may have to …

Vergara gets Cué’s goat

The Greatest MLS Accomplishments of Antonio Cué: 1.  Got Doug Hamilton’s car really clean 2.  3. 4.  I must be here to bury Antonio Cué, because I’m damn sure not here to praise him.  I’ve said this before, but Chivas USA should be studied in business schools around the world.  This is …

MLS playoffs – think locally, act moronically

I was on the phone before the ball even hit the net. “Satan?  It’s me.  Luke Rodgers is going to be the hero?  After all I’ve done for you?  Tell me what it’ll take to undo this.” “Okay, Loney.  Five things.  First, who the here told you to call me …

The MVP award is a connected series of statements to establish a definite proposition

EDIT – Yikes on the first version of the title.  (For those of you who missed it, I said nice things about Hitler.  Whoops!  Also my grammar sucked, but it was primarily the Hitler thing.) I should have waited until this week to start complaining about the two-legged first round, …

The biggest flops in American soccer history

Blame Kenn. If it weren’t for him pointing this out on Facebook, I wouldn’t have read this: This is a team not only in danger of missing the playoffs, but one that could become the biggest flop in American professional soccer history. Okay, forget for a moment that this year’s …

Bob Bradley to spend less time with his family

Okay, here’s an in-depth look at the All-Star Game, and what it means in the grand scheme of things for MLS. As I explain in great detail, the product of a significant amount of work and research on my part, the All-Star Game provides Major League Soccer with a oh …
