HDNet now has this half hour pregame show called "MLS: Behind The Net" Now I'm very happy to see another TV show about the league, even one that only 12 or 14 people nationwide can get. Ubfortunately though all they do is turn on the cameras early and let Marcelo and Glenn whatshisname verbally masturbate for 30 minutes. This necessitates actually watching, as well as having to listen to, Marcelo Balboa. It's not bad enough that everything that he says is either obvious or stupid or a cliche - now you also have to look at that absurd "Hey, I'm Still Hip" greasyass hairdo, the cheezy oversized hoop earring and that gravy-laden little goatee thing that looks like a rodent crawled onto his mouth and died. Last night they were trying to kill time by asking each other questions and Marcelo was asked to predict the teams which would make the playoffs and who had been getting hot going into the last month. Guess what? He didn't even mention Columbus. Acted like they weren't even in the league. He thinks the East comes down to Metros/Fire, with DC and New England getting the other spots. Never even MENTIONED the POSSIBILITY that Crew could be in it. Balboa needs to go get a real fucking job and stop annoying people who bathe regularly. He was always a crappy player and why anyone would hire him so they can listen to him start every sentence with "Well, they really have" or "Well, it really is" and be forced to look at that bus-station-Vietnam-Vet-begging-for-change looking butthole is beyond me.
