    Excited for the Quakes and MLS to begin. For me, if the Quakes simply qualify for the playoffs it would be swell as I temper my excitement with the addition of Eriksson and Quintana - and moving Jungwirth to midfield (maybe). Sorry to see Victor Bernardez leave after 6 years as he was a solid Quake but time caught up with him last year.

    With no interest in the World Cup except for England, I should have plenty of time. Maybe this will be the year I get hooked on MLS.

    Against my better judgment, I renewed my Galaxy season tickets. One thing is for certain...it will be a very different team out there this year. There will be, at most, 3 players in the starting lineup Sunday that started last year’s opener. Ola Kamara was a huge acquisition and with him, Gio, Alessandrini, and a (hopefully) healthy Sebastian Lletget, they’ll actually score some goals this year. The question is, how many goals will they allow?

    My best guess is they will allow quite a few but the addition of Kitchen at d-mid will help offset some of the holes in the back four.

    The Good: LAFC whooped RSL 5-1, and Bob’s boys have banked 2 road wins and 6 points.

    The Bad: Montreal is pointless after 2 matches.

    The Ugly: My Timbers had a power struggle, Caleb Porter left. Magbe was traded, and Portland has a -5 GD and zero points...sigh

    I think you mis-categorized LAFC’s success as “good,” Joe.

    My “good” for the week: Sigi seems to have tired of Gio dos Santos. I can’t take credit for this idea, but I think the G’s should let him nurse an “injury” until the World Cup, hope he has a good showing for El Tri, and then sell him to a sucker club elsewhere. Jona can stay, though.

    Josef Martinez of Atlanta United with his 4th hat trick in only his 23rd career MLS game.

    Wondo now the second leading goal-scorer in MLS history with his tally in the Quakes 2-3 defeat to Sporting KC (Zusi with a pretty strike in that one for KC). 135 MLS goals in 14 years - great numbers in any league. And yet, he will forever be remembered by most folks for this (if only that butterfly hadn't fluttered its wings in Brazil that day...):

    My understanding is the most career hat tricks in MLS history is five. To have 4 in 23 matches is pretty amazing.

    Has everybody seen this? Has anyone tried it? I keep looking for the catch, but apparently you can stream every out market match for FREE. There's even a roku app (so I can watch on my big tv instead of straining my back and neck over a laptop for two hours)!

    This may very well be the one thing that finally gets me more involved in MLS. I've been trying for years, but still only managed a few matches during the playoffs.

    I’ve used it for a couple years but this is the first time I’ve seen it free at the beginning of the year. I love the Roku app. You can also stream it on a phone.

    Before this year there has been an annual fee but I was glad to pay it to be honest.

    I don’t have much of a voice left after that one. It was a fun day.
