    Yesterday a bundle of joy arrived at my doorstep, no not a baby, something better, a box with a replica Chicago Fire jersey and a video showing the greates MLS goals since 96. throws the video in for free when you buy a jersey. It was amazing, my soul was immediately nourished and fed. I first thought it was going to be a little bit of a rip off because it said the video was 22 minutes long. I thought, "how many goals could they show in only 22 minutes?" They show plenty, all world class goals. I counted how may they show and you get 60 goals, but actually 120 because they show each goal again in slow motion. And whats best is there is nobody like Rob Stone talking over the action, its just the original announcers or in some cases no announcer at all, just the sounds of the crowd. Its great. The goals aren't shown though in order from 96-01, they are just shown in random order, which is ok, its a virtual potpourri of action. The best thing about this video is it would be a great educational resource for new MLS fans because you see all the great early goals. You get bicycle kicks by Balboa, Cienfuegos, DiazArce, Savarese, and Hugo Sanchez. You get long range bombs by Razov, Etcheverry, Preki, Donadoni and Balboa (with blonde hair, spooky) And you see the wicked curveball by Caricola and the Golazo Olimpico by Damian. But maybe whats best is you get to see the way the league was in the early days for example with the replay of the Savarese bicycle kick you see the crowd at the Meadowlands, hell, there must have been 40 thousand people there. The announcer for the Crew one time says "only seconds left." Oh the days of the clock counting down. You see a sign at the Cottonbowl saying "ban the shootout" and you see the crowd at the Horseshoe in Columbus. And finally you get to hear the announcer for DC saying, " Etcheverry knifing through, Etcheverry, Etcheverry, Etcheverry, its in the net, its in the net, oh its in the net." God Bless the MLS!

    Yeah, free with a jersey is all well and good but I have wanted to buy it alone, and that option doesn't seem to be available.

    The problem right now is that they don't have jerseys of all the teams.
