Once again the Sounders faithful brings it. Though, I’m still trying to decide what the guys are doing on the horses. Anyone?

Well done Portland. Well done.

Hat tip once again to the Seattle fans last night who brought it. Seriously well done.

The 2013 AT&T MLS All-Star Game logo was unveiled on Sunday at Sporting Park during halftime of Sporting Kansas City’s nationally televised match against Chivas USA.
Overall, I like it. I’d say this is a big improvement over the last couple of ASG logos.
I think the graphic above says it all. Altitude, the broadcasting group that does the games for the Colorado Rapids may possibly be the worst in MLS. Listening to the game was brutal yesterday and I won’t even get into that but this starting XI graphic clearly shows how little someone cares about their job.
Seriously. Three keepers? Watch the highlights too – when that graphic appears on screen things get fun – Marcelo Balboa is speechless. Which may not be a bad thing.
Hat tip to SBNation.com site The Burgundy Wave for posting this. They cleverly wrote that Altitude was drunk when doing this, I think its pretty possible that they were.
The MLS Supporters’ Shield is getting a new look.
In a release by the group that is responsible for the trophy each season, The Supporters’ Shield Foundation in partnership with the Independent Supporters Council (ISC), has announced the creation of a new Supporters’ Shield trophy and the formation of the Supporters Shield Foundation.
This new Supporters’ Shield replaces the previous trophy at the start of the 2013 MLS season. Supporter groups across Major League Soccer via the ISC have worked together to fund, design and deliver this stunning new shield. The new shield is built on the passions of todays MLS supporters, and encapsulating the history and work of the early MLS supporters. The Supporters’ Shield represents the growth and accomplishments of all MLS supporters since the awards start in 1999.
I love the new look. I think it will make fans very pleased and it will give the players a little something extra to go for each season. I mean, the trophy looks like a damn shield now.
Yeah…very 1990s like huh?
Our first little soccer venue here in MLS is now a pesky teenager.
Hard to believe where it today compared to when it first opened back in 1999. Thirteen years ago today the Columbus Crew opens Crew Stadium before a sold-out crowd of 24,741, the first MLS stadium built specifically for soccer in the United States as Columbus beat the New England Revolution 2-0.
Now there is a stage on one side and probably a few other good changes. This place opened up many doors for the league and has seen its fair share of quality games too. Who doesn’t forget the US beating Mexico here a few times? Or some of the crazy MLS matches that have taken place here too.
Cheers Crew Stadium, you’ve never known a sponsor name and now you enter those fun teenage years. Still lots of growing to do but the ride has certainly been fun up until this point.
Time to tip our hats to Chicago’s Section 8 this week (something new I wanna try to start doing each Monday, a quick highlight of a club’s supporters group).
They brought the noise and the quality tifo in their home opener this past weekend. I’ve always been impressed with this group in their dedication to the Fire. Love the Tifo here that they displayed on Saturday. Quality work.
Kudos Fire fans.
Hot damn that’s some quality tifo.
(H/T to MLS’s Kick Off for this one.)
