Watching The MLS Is Like Self Flaggelation

This weekend I went to see the Los Angeles Galaxy play with my wife and some friends. What a disappointing game that was! Despite having discount tickets (only \$10) we felt totally ripped off. During the whole game, my teammate and I were joking that “Ronaldinho would’ve made that play.”

My wife and I now have a new song entitled What would Ronaldinho do? sung to the tune of South Park’s What would Brian Boitana do? I think I will have to start passing out WWRD bracelets.

The Galaxy are playing boring lackluster soccer so far this season. The game was a scoreless tie till the Columbus Crew scored in injury time with an ugly goal. Fugly. It takes FC Barcelona visiting to play a Mexican team for us to get us some decent soccer around here. I am hoping to get some tickets to that.

Speaking of the big R, have you seen the amazing Nike commercial featuring Ronaldinho as a kid playing in the Brazillian futsal leagues (like soccer but indoor with smaller teams and ball). It splices scenes of him playing as a kid with him now. He was amazing back then. Here it is on YouTube.

This was a soccer weekend for me. I had a fantastic game on Saturday in which we won five to one, only to be followed by a terrible three zero loss on Sunday. I need to quit playing on Sundays, because it always erases the good feelings created on Saturday.
