All my rowdy friends are here on Thursday night.
I’m really starting to like these primetime MLS games on Thursday nights.
How about you?
I’m also as excited as when I grew up with the Monday docket of MacGyver at 8pm and Monday Night Football at 9pm on the East Coast and had IBM’s You Make the Call as the first commercial in the 1st quarter.
Tonight, Sounders again okay primetime, this time against FC Dallas. A few questions on this:
• What’s wrong with this juxtaposition: Seattle has trouble scoring and Fredy Montero is rumored to be headed to CSKA Moscow. Closing the book on that one…wait…you know half these rumors are just agents out there trying to drum up demand. I can see this one as Fredy’s agent saying, “Okay who’s really far away that no else will be able to get a hold of?”
• Good test here for Heath Pearce. Can he shut down Freddie Ljundberg, but also get ahead in the attack?
I feel I might have, let’s say, put-off a few of you with opining on my love of the current style of play from the Los Angeles Galaxy. I’m not ready to choose a team; not sure if I ever will. I do know that this season MLS because of the TV production, improved quality of play and the forthcoming World Cup has been more watchable for me than ever before.
I’m going to need something to get me into MLS and I’ll have a column on what it is shortly.
