    Check Out Eric Hassli’s Incredible Goal From Saturday Night (Video)

    As far as spectacular goals go there have been none more spectacular during the 2011 MLS season than the one scored by the Vancouver Whitecaps’ Eric Hassli on Saturday night.  It was a wild game between the Whitecaps and the Seattle Sounders that saw three goals scored after the 80-minute mark, but Hassli’s volley from […]

    Real Salt Lake’s Javier Morales Suffers Nasty Leg Break (Video)

    Less money, decreased popularity and the level of competition are just a few things preventing many of the world’s elite soccer players from taking the trip across the Atlantic to play in the MLS.  I am going to assume that the sudden rise in gruesome leg-breaking tackles isn’t helping the North American soccer league’s cause […]

    The Portland Timbers Celebrate Goals Like You Would Expect Them To (Video)

    Rather than have their players take part in a goal celebration that could earn them a red card, the Portland Timbers of the MLS leave that job to “Timber Joey” and his trusty chainsaw.

    Sexy Body-Paint Ad Angers Vancouver Whitecaps Sponsors (Video)

    To sexualize, or not to sexualize?  That was the question that the MLS’s newest team, the Vancouver Whitecaps FC, were confronted with during a recent promotional campaign.

  • 9 Sporting Events Somehow Less Relevant Than the Pro Bowl

    9 Sporting Events Somehow Less Relevant Than the Pro Bowl

    This is probably my most difficult assignment in 6 months of making these lists. The task: Find 9 sports events that are less relevant than the Pro Bowl.

    Picture Of The Day: In and Out

    I get the first part, but the second part doesn’t make much sense to me. I bet this chick could help explain it to us. I know soccer players have weird names and their coaches like to pick their noses and eat it, but this is just a little too much here. That Vagenas, probably […]
