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.”

  • So much fuss about handshakes (It’s a freakin’ handshake, for goodness sake!)
  • Attendance at RFK Stadium
  • Marco Pappa (Anybody missing the guy in Chicago?)
  • Blaming it all on players’ allegedly lame effort
  • Concerns over the Galaxy when missing one DP
  • Ham
  • Announcers hollering about missed chances (and not giving the other team’s goalkeeper proper credit for a big save.)
  • FC Dallas’ playoff chances without center back George John (pictured)
  • Jan Gunnar Solli (as a midfielder; dude rocks as a DJ)
  • Everton’s finishing
  • Talk of Arsenal demise
  • Anything that takes me away from Champions League tomorrow

    Funny how you mention not giving goalies credit for stopping “missed chances” then mentioning Everton’s “finishing” (“missed chances”) in the same meh list.

      Fair enough, I suppose. But whenever I looked up, I saw Pienaar or Mirallas or someone else wasting chance after chance — and not necessarily due to anything exceptional from Harper in Newcastle goal.

    Dear Steve, you advising me to read this post on twitter was the best advice I’ve heard all day

    • Steve Davis - Sep 18, 2012 at 3:42 AM

      Was it reading the list, or “leave office” that was the better advice?

      • twalkray - Sep 18, 2012 at 1:28 PM

        it was the combo of the two

    It’s not a problem, it was just funny.

      No, I knew how you intended that … no offense taken. (Or, if you’re Canadian, no “offence” taken.) It WAS surely ironic, eh?
