personally, "Sweet" by ONTD...I've been lazy getting over there, and that's a pretty impressive Simpson's representation of the red scouse...

as for the "SBI Mafia" - Ives is on top of MLS like a hawk, and I loved seeing the banner at the game...

but, seriously, no interwebs reaction to the poll he posted on his site regarding "standings vs playoffs" to determine the MLS winner? And, yes, I'm being a dick right now...

I missed it. What was/is it?

enter "dec 22 poll" searching his site (not the WWW), and take a look. It's NOT, even for me, any sense of validation. But I think there was an assumed sense that MLS fans wanted a playoff (just like ALL US sports), whereas the ultimate answer showed a big division in American footy fans...one that might ultimately be critical to the game's future in the US (and, just for fun, "fuck becks")...(and I'm not claiming that it is so, just pointing out the results, which have never been addressed (to my awareness))...If it has, I missed something...

Oh, and I should have been asleep an hour ago - next time hit me at gmail and I'll react faster...

I see it. Perhaps its something we can look into, or take over here.

Sorry, this is why you shouldn't question drunk people...

I'm just mad I was so sure it was the 22nd...(umm, yeah...)

But I think the bigger picture is still the same...what do American footy fans want out of MLS?

I wish Sammy Lee were in that picture, a Simpsonized version would be horrifying.
