Major League Soccer and MLS Works have released the 2013 edition of their “Don’t Cross the Line” PSA campaign with some of the league’s biggest stars participating.
Check it out:
Just a block from where the Declaration of Independence was adopted, members of the 2012 MLS All Star Team and Chelsea FC met to face reporters ahead of tonight’s match.
If bringing an English team together with the All Stars of America’s league so close to the site of where our independence from England was forged was a bit of intentional irony, bravo Major League Soccer staffers.
The giant MLS All Star soccer ball sat atop the Independence Visitors Center as part of its latest stop around the city of Philadelphia.
Sorry it has taken me a while to write this post from last Saturday’s game but I’ve had a strange week.
The game was a game of two halves: the first was a disorganized mess. The second was just amazing.
I’m not sure what happened in that first half. It was messy and the ball was lost way too easily but with some minor groin strains I’m going to blame that.
The second was seeing all the parts just seem to work. The Kenny Cooper/Thierry Henry front line is just getting crazy. Dax McCarty had what is probably his best half in a Red Bulls shirt. The much maligned Mehdi Ballouchy scored an amazing goal and did our ‘wipeout’ as his goal celebration. So what do we take from this?
The Red Bulls’ first win at our home opener — now the season can right itself before it is lost. What a win it was! Yes, I know Colorado were missing major players but NY is always missing major players; for example, no Teemo or Agudelo on Sunday. There are some still questions to review.
The Bright Spots
The Cooper/Henry partnership:
This is looking to be a budding partnership ready to run riot on the league. In the first two games, NY looked the best when they were both on the field together. In the first start together, each got a goal in the first 6 min and both got a brace. The few missed passes between the two make me think they are still meshing together so once they really get used to each other watch out. Cooper may be the answer to the everlasting Rodgers visa saga. I’ve never seen our offense start so well like it did on Sunday. I would have liked it to continue as strong all through the game but 4 goals in a game is always good.
Wow what a difference the defense is with him in the lineup. I just hope he stays healthy but he may be the solution to all of the problems in the defense.
Yep that one, the maligned left back that seems to always be the fall guy for any failure had probably his best game in a NY shirt. He seemed good in the back and assisted the final goal.
Yep he’s back but he looked determined and ready to play as opposed to last year. He was very impressive minus the giveaway that lead to the Cummings goal but I could tell he was tired…
Apologies in advance for all of the KCKRS links, but in my opinion they were on fire today.
- DC United has a new set of beanbag animals as a part of their merchandise collection that are a bit creepy and a bit unidentifiable.
- No matter where your loyalties lie, you have to have a lot of respect for Thierry Henry flying to England to spend a brief amount of time with the still-recovering Fabrice Muamba.
- The Shin Guardian is angling to become the Free Coffee Movement as it begins to look at the great coffee roasters of MLS cities.
- Finally, KCKRS shared a video of how Brek Shea achieved his look for FC Dallas’ appearance on the first MLS on NBC Sports Broadcast
