I love to watch the game, but my fandom for the sport hasn't transcended into fandom for a team, either MLS or international.
I followed the Crew early and was a big fan of Brian McBride, but then drifted away from the team because of lack of access to games on TV. Last season I really got back into following them. Spend some time watching Guillermo Barros Schellotto work his magic for the Crew. He's the reigning MVP and his play is incredible. He is definitely my favorite player in the MLS.
