Does anyone else feel like MLS is kind of stupid about marketing itself? I got an e-mail this morning from MLSnet.com telling me to "Tune in to MLS First Kick 2008 presented by Dick's Sporting Goods!"
The associated image is here:
Beckham? Fine. Josie? Fine. (Except that he plays for the MetroBulls...) But Mr. White? Huh? He scored 4 goals in 14 games last year (0.29). Emilio scored 20 goals in 29 games (0.7). Hell, even Gomez scored 10 in 27 (0.37)!
I don't want this post to come off sounding like pure DCU bias (even though I am strongly biased towards DCU), so I'll go out of my way to point out that He Who Must Not Be Named, the friggin captain of the USMNT, plays in this league (0.32). How about him?
Discuss anti-DC bias in the comments.
UPDATE: In response to skippy in the comments: You mean something like this? :)
