    That's looking to be a great game. Toronto comes to town with their high-priced talent and the second most obnoxious fan base after Seattle.

    They became my sleeper pick for 2014 the second they got Parkhurst. He does a half dozen subtly brilliant things every game. The Revs still haven't filled the hole he left when he went to Denmark. I like Tchani's game too. He's one of the best destroyers in the league.

    What was Seattle doing on that last Columbus goal? Giving anyone that much space, let alone with 30 seconds left in the game is inexcusable.

    They claim the ref distracted them, which I really didn't see. I got the impression Seattle was time wasting hoping the ref would blow the final whistle as soon as the corner was taken. Some Seattle blogger claims they were waiting for the ref to whistle ready for the corner, but the rules don't require a player to wait for the whistle on a corner. The reality was that they got caught napping.

    Interesting development, soon-to-be MLS team owner David Beckham insists the league needs to get rid of its salary cap.

    He claims he's spoken with a number of "friends" who want to come over to play for Miami. My guess is that he wants to sign a bunch of his old buddies to play but wants to do away with the rule that limits teams to 3 DPs. If I'm MLS, I tell him he knows the rule and it wouldn't be wise to start rocking the boat before his team plays a match. Has he even paid the expansion fee yet? All I've heard is that he announced he wishes to exercise his option for Miami and they are looking at stadium sites. At this point it's unwise to act as though everything is a done deal. Cleveland was once awarded an expansion franchise and had a stadium site all set to go, and it all blew up when voters rejected a referendum on a tax to pay for infrastructure.

    Although it would be oddly appropriate given the location, my other concern is that Beckham's team will become a retirement community for washed up Europeans.

    I'm watching the Timbers-Sounders match on NBCSN and it's a real barnburner. 4-2 Portland in the 57'. Back and forth in the first half, but the Timbers have taken the advantage in the second. Both teams playing attacking ball and the Portland crowd is in top form.

    Also, De'Andre Yedlin looks like he has a brick of ramen noodles stuck on his head.

    Wow. Dempsey scores for Seattle, then Portland concedes a penalty less than a minute later. Dempsey buries it to get the hat trick and tie the score, 4-4.

    I'd note quite a few University of Akron alumni have been involved in this game: Darlington Nagbe, Yedlin, Ben Semanski, and now Steve Zambian is coming in.

    Both teams still trying for 3 points. Neither content to settle for a tie.

    And it ends a tie, 4-4. Just a crazy game. If you're a fan of the EPL, I'd encourage you to check out the MLS this season. There have definitely been some exciting games already this season and they've had quite an influx of talent to raise the level of play.

    That Sounders/Timbers game was really great and super entertaining. It's too bad not every MLS, or soccer game for that matter could be like that one.

    For example I went to the Galaxy/Chivas game yesterday and while it was nice that LA won 3-0 I don't think Chivas ever got out of bed. LA is trying out a diamond midfield this year with all their new faces and it did look pretty good yesterday. Chivas just played 9 or 10 behind the ball and tried to hold on.

    Being a noob to soccer, what style does MLS most identify with, or do they lack a definitive league-wide style?
    Witty signature.

    Well I think it varies from team to team. The league in general is pretty physical in nature.

    There are quite a few exciting teams, but I wouldn't expect much when Chivas is playing. I wouldn't expect games involving Sunderland or Cardiff to be thrilling either.

    True enough. I try to avoid Chivas games, but I held out hope that they might be competitive given their start to the season.
