Despite what ESPN would like you to think, no, the MLS isn’t going to become the next great American thing on the heels of the World Cup. It’s not a good league. Matches are fun to attend, and the atmosphere at PPL Park is great, but the league stinks. It’s borderline unwatchable when the EPL, Champions League and others are so readily available on TV. But, this goal by the Union against THE RAPIDS on Saturday night was awesome, and the diagram tweeted out by team today is almost as good (huge additional props for recognizing a tiny mistake and fixing it).
Nice use of social media. Meanwhile, the Phillies’ Twitter GIRL is reminding everyone that the team is in fact off for the All-Star break. FML.
