    I hate that people just forget about the MLS, I mean it's called the MLS for a reason.

    Another beautiful day here. Going to miss summer when it leaves tonight.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    They can CALL MLS anything they want but MLS still has a long way to go before it is in the ML in the USA. Heck Golf brings in more revenue on television that MLS and Golf is boring as all heck to watch. MLS could gain in popularity as a few more generations of children grow up with the sport, anything is possible, but we have our own version of football and we seem to prefer it plus it brings in the revenue. Looking at my two twenty-something kids and their friends who played soccer in elementary school, some in HS, they forgot the sport and never looked back.

    Actually from the people I observe that are really into Soccer on a whole in the USA are not following USA soccer more following foreign country teams that are either their homeland or from their heritage. Not so many glued to the TV following USA MLS.

    Good point, but there are some places that take the MLS to the next level, like Portland or Seattle.

    Yeah, it is coming along slowly. The average MLS now at least makes between $85,000. Obviously some a great deal more and then some dramatically less. Just not enough viewership to garner lucrative TV contracts to make those team profitable to have salaries or fans anywhere near what the NBA, NHL, MLB, NFL has.

    Same could be said for the overwhelming majority of women's professional sports.

    85000 poor fellas. I remember after NineEleven MLB went on strike. I realized they needed to protect their earning potential, but really bad timing and since then I wouldn't give one of them a red cent (is red cent politically correct, I know MLF Redskins is not P/C).

    The people sitting in the audience on the Judge Judy show are paid to be there so they can control dress and behavior.

    I think AEG had him knocked off and knew it would look like a bad druggy, but apparently Sharon Osborne has some juicy info from AEG execs/employees that will lend to support Katherine Jackson's wrongful death lawsuit.

    It would stand to reason and ironic if not poetic that Tiger Woods got clubbed again and by a cell phone, to loose the masters.
