Is under way. A couple of random thoughts while watching the first half of the final match of opening weekend between LAFC and Sporting Kansas City: 1). How the heck is Brek Shea a) still making a living playing professional soccer and, b) STARTING FOR THE DEFENDING CHAMPIONS!!! 2). How many matches will new boys (and our former USL arch-rival) FC Cincinnati lose? 3). What the heck is Zulily? The Sounders and XBOX have apparently parted ways as shirt sponsor, so.... Zulily. Yeah. Hoping the level of play keeps improving.
