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.”

  • Giles Barnes
  • Saying a game “is getting chippy”
  • Officially trademarked goal celebrations
  • Benny Feilhaber’s latest opportunity for Sporting KC, a start Sunday at Chicago
  • Jose Torres’ (pictured) latest opportunity to make an impression internationally
  • Silly marketing gimmicks in an All-Star selection process
  • Energy bars
  • Veracity of almost any individual report out of Europe involving the word “transfer” right now
  • WAGS (a summer staple, when things get a little slow in the actual game, you know)
  • Outrage over new kits
  • Any complaints the LA Galaxy lodge in 2013 after watching Robbie Keane crumble dubiously  last week against Columbus
  • San Jose Earthquakes’ mini-revival under Mark Watson
  • Pundit rejection of $45 million transfer bids as pittance
  • Seattle Sounders when Osvaldo Alonso not in lineup

    All the overuse British phrases. Why do they all say the exact same thing everytime ? Can’t one of them be charismatic enough to deviate once a game. Something exciting.

    The Sounders might not make meh without Ozzie..he is THE guy I build a team around.

      My favorite “Britishism” is “nervy.” It means different things in US & British English. So, Mr. American Announcer, which one do you mean?
