Superliga Semifinal Preview
On the 12 hour flight back, I played on my Nintendo DS and beat Mega Man 2, Blaster Master, and Code Name: Viper. I'm the best.
Superliga pits teams from the FMF and MLS attempting to create a Champions League feel without the home/away games (probably because FMF teams that play in America actually have WAAAY more fans than MLS teams). The only other country in North America is Canada, and they don't have a high profile league. So we'll probably be only seeing MLS and FMF teams for awhile.
This tournament would be great if the MLS wasn't playing preseason form FMF teams. It's pretty annoying to hear MLS fans say, "SEE. LOLROFL WERE JUST AS GOOD AS FMF TEAMS CUZ WE WON. JUST LOOK AT SEMIFINALS ROFLLMFAOLOL!!1" Remember when the Raiders went 3-0 or something in preseason? Yeah, they got the #1 pick the year after. As a result, you have this kind of Semifinal:
Houston Dynamo (USA) vs. CF Pachuca (MEX)
Los Angeles Galaxy (USA) vs. D.C. United (USA)
ZZZzzz boring. MLS is only making money off this because Chivas and Club America bring in tons of fucking fans. With them out, no one is watching this shit. No one unless Beckham gets healthy, which may not be until the Finals (semis are being playing Aug 14-15). Move this shit near the end of the MLS season. That would be great, thanks.
My picks are Dynamo and D.C. United in the Finals with the Dynamo taking it all.
