Seriously, Snarky, it's a holiday. You need to take one...if not from the internet entirely, at least from this blog.

Now...
I'd say Landon said it.

LD it was. Of course, you have to imagine the red nose, bleary eyes and frog voice from his illness to go with the quote.

Seriously, nothing says 4th of July patriotism like freedom of speech and expression.

Hey Andrea, does this mean you are going to nominate LD for player of the year for playing "sick" against the Revs?

God Bless Los Estados Unidos!!!

"Miracle" in this case is a euphemism for "joke."

This far into the season and not a single Western conference team has won more games than it's lost.

It looks wrong. It looks ridiculous. It looks bush.

How to prevent it in future?

Either a) switch to a single table or b) weight the schedules to ensure that, at the very least, the first place teams have winning records.

The joke to me is whenever I read anything that mentions the division standings and I have the half of a second lag before realizing that this refers to a field of seven. If there's is anything that would make MLS look bush league to either fans of other sports in the U.S. or followers of other football leagues around the world it would have to start here. Being the best or worst of seven on any given week is barely interesting enough to note, let alone generate excitement.

Leagues break up into divisions when the number of teams become unwieldy, not to create a false appearance of competition. The result here is the opposite. Posting the standings in this manner makes the table look less competitive (or just silly).
