Quick-hit list of people, places and things we noticed over the weekend that land on the over-done or overly praised side. Not necessarily awful but, you know, just “meh.”

  • Suggesting your team “deserved” a different result
  • Michel Platini
  • Any deficit for San Jose (pictured)
  • Most deficits for New England
  • Complaints about Joachim Low
  • Crawfish boils (tons o’ work, tiny reward)
  • Qualifying for Confed Cup
  • All-Star berths gained via Twitter campaigns
  • Sporting Kansas City’s shooting accuracy
  • Matt Reis doing anything but shot stopping
  • Liberal use of the “second” assist
  • Key lime pie
  • All the Seattle Sounders center backs right now
  • Quote-heavy, half-baked newspaper stories that basically say “Americans like soccer! Who knew?”

    Glad my suggestion not only got included, but got the bold treatment.

      It was a good suggestion; it deserved the Deluxe Package treatment! Cheers to ya

    You should hire Tyler for this blog, Steve. He brings great perspective in the comments section and he could cover the bases in South America while adding a hamster to the wheel for coverage here in the USA.
