Apparently the MLS season has begun...

And what a better night for MLS First Kick than also the first day of the NCAA tournament. A day that friends of mine have marked the beginning of, "The most wonderful time of the year." Yes, to the same melody as the Christmas carol...

After all MLS, you've got a brand new team to debut... With a previously successful coach... In a brand new stadium... Against a team with a big sponsor.

I suppose I might have received an e-mail about all of this. But I was probably distracted by the prospect of Sunday's DCU away match and also, um, the fact that I didn't figure the first match of the season would go tonight. Because, um, for lots of reasons that I mentioned before.

Congrats Seattle.

Yeah I'll be honest, I had no clue the season had begun. For me the season never truly begins until the first D.C. United match.

That first match had captvating excitement. Seattle will keep cool throughout the season when teams in Texas get a kick in the balls with the heat. Seattle will be as good as you think. Keller looked rusty. Osorio and his panic-subs. What an embarassing place for a pink cow to be. United!!!!!!!!!!!

The league has done a terrible job marketing the start of the season. Despite a lot of decent storylines (new Seattle franchise, Sigi moving there, some good Americans returning home), we haven't seen commercials for MLS. Really a shame.
