Is the point that you're making that baseball sucks because one of the best players is asian?

damn near every country plays soccer...and no asian player is close to consideration of being the best player
Well Europe and South America got about a century headstart on Asia, so you can forgive them

It’s not like there’s anything preventing an Asian from being the best. The greatest footballer of all time is a technically sound midget after all, it’s not like there’s something in the water with the elites

Also, you sure about nowhere close? 2 years ago Son won the Golden Boot in the toughest league in the world without taking a single penalty. Idk what you consider 11th in Ballon d’Or voting but that’s fairly close

There is nothing more painful than watching the EPL on Saturday am's and then watching the MLS later in the day. If Miami wins it, it's only b/c the league planned it that way. Btw, I'm a Clt Fc fan b/c I live here and the games are a great time.

by wilceauxAustin FC fan here. Even though we aren't very good, the games are still a great atmosphere.

Going to the FC Dallas game with some friends next week. Tickets cost $95 and weren’t even in a great location. Same tickets cost $75 about two years ago. It’s insane.

I used to go to a lot of FC Dallas matches but I got kind of tired of the cheap arse Hunt family always selling off the best players in the middle of the season and then acting surprised they can't win in the playoffs. I'll still occasionally watch when they play one of the better teams but until the Hunt's actually care about winning I can't get too invested.

That’s where I’m at tbh. They seem totally ok with being mid. Ok for the occasional game but not really getting emotionally invested.

2nd half of Atlanta - Philadelphia was...lively. Ended in a 2-2 draw.

Watched some of the Miami/KC match. My takeaway:

Thank God for the SAP feature as Taylor Twellman is the fricking worst.
