    Now that we’ve gotten all those crappy CONCACAF games out of the way, it’s time to get back to some crappy MLS games. Since Knave declared Week 26 would end on Tuesday, that makes today the start of Week 27.

    In my 14 years on BigSoccer, I’m pretty sure this is the first time I have ever started the weekly PBP thread in MLS N&A. If it all goes haywire, I blame @Ismitje for slacking off at his job and forcing a rank amateur like me to stumble through starting the thread. You’d think, at the salary we pay him, he’d work a little harder. Anyways.

    All games on MLS Live unless stated otherwise.

    All times Central Daylight Time, the way the Good Lord intended.

    Three red cards in four games? What is this, the 2001 playoffs? Of course, Jair Marrufo was in charge of the fourth game and ruined everything by not showing any cards at all!

    Back to a normal allotment of matches this week. Enjoy these tasty referee statistics.

    See, I assumed that the times on MajorLeagueSoccersoccer.com were Eastern. But they are tailored to my location, which is Central. Which means I screwed up. See, @Ismitje? I told you this would happen. Too late for me to edit, too. I guess that means I have to make you work anyway.

    If you are familiar with the You Are The Ref website, they'll commentating on and analyzing tonight's referee. Twitter @youaretheref

    I don't always agree with their analysis, but it's another perspective.

    I'm not motivated to go to Yankee Stadium tonight and the game is being shown tape delayed at 11:30 pm. Oh, I couldn't even sell my tickets for $20 each.

    Can I be the first to express my shock at how literate, amusing and well-spoken Carlos Ruiz was last night (in Spanish) as a studio analyst for beIn Sports?

    The guy has a serious future as a broadcaster if he wants it.

    Matt Lawrence is decent, I actually think his comments are reasonable and entertainingly knowledgable. Nate Bukaty is truly awful, though.

    Yep, I was eating dinner with the family. Now I'm on the game. I see it's raining, Espinoza got a yellow, and no one has scored. I'm not surprised.

    Well nothing is happening very quickly in this game. With the number of NYC players out and the constant rain falling, I shouldn't expect more.

    I just think I prattles on a little too long. He needs to get to the point.

    On the radio I think he is great the few times I've heard him on the XM soccer station.



    Bugatti blows. I just figured that was common knowledge that didn't need mentioning.
