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

1 Comment

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
