    Sounds familiar: Team playing better but attendance not improving.
    What do MLS and its teams have for marketing advisors?
    Reminds me of the statement a couple of weeks ago by a marketing expert that WUSA and its teams thought they were marketing to a certain demographic but the effort was way off target.

    You ain't seen nothing yet. Go down the thread to the Metrostars Dog Show. I can't even think about that picture without cracking up - and it's my team.

    The dog pix is classic. My kids love a book called "Dogzilla." Looks like whoever created the pix above has the same book.

    I'd seriously considering wear a turkey mask and my Metro jersey and blow one of those turkey calls. Gobble gobble! :(

    (My guess might be that Pathmark's marketing people came up with the turkey logo and then Metro slapped a jersey on it. FYI for fellow NorCals Pathmark's a supermarket chain.)

    Holy crap! When I saw that picture of the "dogs in Giants Stadium," I thought for sure that some Metro or DC United fan was having some fun at the expense of the Metro marketing office. Can you say "farked?"

    I laughed and cried at the same time.
    Check out the photo gallery:

    Classic stuff.
