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


People, places and things we noticed during the weekend that tend to land on the over-done or overly praised side. Not necessarily awful but, you know, just “meh.”

  • Season opening attendance in Chicago
  • Watching Sporting KC in 2013 (inferior to the greatness that was watching SKC in 2012)
  • Overly dramatic post-game press conferences
  • Curious contentment with early season clunkers (“It’s a long season” only goes so far.)
  • Jose Mourinho’s false modesty
  • Concerns over Brad Guzan’s ability to ably replace Tim Howard next week
  • PPG (points per game) in the standings/table
  • Sherjill MacDonald (the poor guy is close to establishing a standing place on this list)
  • Pita chips
  • Screaming at refs after committing obvious fouls (Apparently, too many players believe the laws of the game are “Meh”)
  • Marvell Wynne’s crossing
  • Most of the crossing in MLS
  • Joel Lindpere in spring (he was slow out of the gate last year, too)
