I’ve never felt so bad at something accurately describing my media consumption in a single image.
If you don’t understand why this makes me happy, I’m not going to explain it to you. (at New Seasons Market)

Yes. Your eyes are not lying to you. Chris Isaak wears mirrored suits, too.
I couldn’t get the full impact of this suit due to the lights, but know that Chris Isaak likes him some baby blue. (at Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall)
Kinda like this mezzanine thing. First time I’ve been in the Schnitz. (at Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall)
You have to read this from bottom to top to get the gist of my mini-meltdown about the inequities of how players come to teams in MLS, but it’s safe to say that it’s rare when I get bent out of shape enough for this many tweets on one subject.

As a Portland Timbers fan when Portland had the allocation order top slot over Seattle yet Dempsey went to Seattle because of some weird kink in allocation of USMNT members, allow me to agree with Jack whole-heartedly here.
If you’re going to have bizarre allocation in player movement as a measure of attempted parity, make the rules transparent and enforce them or don’t bother.
After doing that, only then can front offices be held to account for not procuring players. Because right now, an MLS front office can pretty much coast in byzantine rules and the lack of relegation. (Yes, I understand an MLS franchise is not a license to print money, but the growth has given teams more leeway by all appearances unless you are Chivas USA.)
It will be real instructive to see what kind of favored status the league could bestow on whatever the next incarnation of Chivas USA is — because if the league manages to keep the franchise in the L.A. area and we see another big-name Euro player head there via some convoluted, opaque manner, the jig is well and truly up.
