Monday “Meh” list: quick recap of the slightly overrated

Dec 3, 2012, 5:02 PM EDT

Beckham-Nov. 29

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.”

A special MLS Cup version:

  • “Sunny” So-Cal
  • L.A. Galaxy’s Christian Wilhelmsson
  • L.A. Galaxy’s Josh Saunders
  • The Dynamo’s central midfield
  • Any larger role of tactics in the Dynamo loss (the Galaxy’s difference makers stood up; simple as that)
  • The cramped Home Depot Center space reserved for press conferences
  • Press conferences to award MVPs when everyone knows the winner
  • LAX
  • The snooty British press
  • Afternoon kickoffs (night-time starts … that’s where it’s at)
  • David Beckham’s insistence on sporting the ski cap when his hair can’t be just so
  • Dismissing Landon Donovan’s career mid-life crisis as a passing thing
  • U.S. women’s team friendlies on MLS Cup day

    Afternoon kickoffs (night-time starts … that’s where it’s at)

    YES!

    I almost didn’t leave work in time on Saturday, as I assumed the marquee game would be in Prime Time. Had to scramble to a bar to catch it, and be “That guy” watching the TV in the corner while the rest of the bar watch Alabama-Georgia.
