This is one alternative that has been floating around if they were to go all in with the Chevrons. Note the actually use of yellow as well.

That being said I am sure the leak is pretty much what the final product will end up being. I imagine the fact that we saw proof of it means the Adidas is well into production.

Let's talk Vegas.

I want to preface by saying that there are a lot of deserving soccer communities with teams, fans, stadiums. MUFC, the Railhawks, San Antonio... the list could go on. While each of them plugs away in the the 2nd and 3rd division, it can be easily said that each of them probably has an eye on MLS. Stadium plans are trotted out, attendance figures touted. I would love the reach of the league to span from coast to coast and all place in between. But I think there is a time where the league will reach a saturation point. The other sports have pegged that at 30+, I think ideally the number is lower for MLS. Here is why. By Vegas cutting in line, we get another market that may not have otherwise made the effort to field a team. The city has always had it's on being "Major League" and has courted every type of team/sport to it's confine. By fielding an expansion club there we build the profile of the SW and more importantly provide some stability to the 2nd and 3rd divisions. Because as you are acutely aware, a lot of the more recent expansion came at the expense of the lower part of the pyramid. We have only seen the trend reverse with NYCFC, Atlanta, and Miami. Stronger lower divisions, with established teams (with history) could pave the way for pro/rel (I am thinking, 20-30 years from now, though not going to happen with Garber still in charge of the league.) But if MLS keeps plucking the cherries off the tree, the process becomes more difficult and remains further away. In addition, if we want to see the level of talent grow, we need 2nd and 3rd division clubs, nurturing talent that might not be ready for primetime. Anyway, this is my random musing. I'm not opposed to Vegas or any other team joining the league. Just hoping for the maturation of lower divisions to create something special here in the States.

I think all expansion teams should come from lower teams that are already organized. Brand new clubs should start in USLPRO. If they can prove to be stable and in a good market, then they can move up. It's not promotion/relegation. Just start small and prove to MLS that you can be a production member.

All I really want is goals. Crossing my fingers.
The Timbers brought in reinforcements at striker this morning with a move for Fanendo Adi.

There has been a discussion on Twitter regarding the pricing for traveling SG. Looking at this season there will be several groups who will end up paying a premium if they choose to travel. A lot has been made in the last couple of years as MLS has marketed the atmosphere surrounding matches and the passion of Supporters. There are some who are of the opinion that say this is the cost of doing business, if MLS is to grow, fans need to be willing to pay a premium. Others have said that it's important that clubs need to work with SG to help keep the game accessible. Where do you fall?

Uggh save me from Comcast!
Over the last few years, gigabit Internet has moved from idea to reality, with dozens of communities (PDF) working hard to build networks with speeds 100 times faster than what most of us live with today. People are hungrier ...

This is great news. Really big financial commitment. Imagine developing a couple speedy defensive backs!

Saw an idea on Twitter in response to MLS countdown to Bayern. Instead of having some elite team come for an All Star game, why not host a Super Cup instead? Winnner of MLS Cup and winner of U.S. Open Cup. Might be tantalizing if a lower division side busts through one year. I liked it as I not a huge fan of our particular version of a mid-season friendly, this at least would bring a little more intrigue and "stakes."

A Super Cup (MLS Cup vs US Open Cup) for the All Star game would be great! Great for the soccer pyramid, great for the drama and a far better candidate for soccer entertainment.

The Captain's prediction? Three points for the Mighty PTFC!

There may or may not have been streakers edited out of the photo. It's from the Chicago Fire account but if you look closely, you will see the scarves on the right appear to floating.

A little taste of Puerto Rico. The closest restaurant in over 300 miles, the place doesn't fail to deliver. Wonderfully decorated, the menu is broad and the servings plentiful. Definitely affordable for those who want a taste of home or just want to relive memories of visiting the island. Staff is friendly. Parking might be a little tight but definitely worth the trip. You can access the parking lot from both Canyon Road and Broadway.

First :) This is a quality facility that dwarfs all others in the Portland metro area. Granted futsal might not be your thing (though it should be) but from the moment you walk in you know that these guys are for real. Close to transit and the highway, the place features three courts. You have to wonder why they decided to go with turf which would be my only knock it but the place is clean, schedules come out in a timely manner, and let's talk about the bar. Clive's is a great place to catch a game and is a proper bar as opposed to other facilities that is seems like a cash grab. I do wish they offered their menu on their website. You can catch your game after the match or watch other games on the overhang. The family friendly bathroom does feature a shower.

Very intimate shop and plenty of selection. My favorite place to head over to find cider although they have it on tap only during the weekends. Aside from that great place to find some great local drinks.

A bit on the spendy side but open 24 hours a day is a rarity in the 'Tron. Gorgeous surroundings and a great place to hold a meeting. Coffee has been cold twice but the pastries are top notch.

Write the next great American Novel while you wait. My family has been here before and had adequate experiences. Appreciated the Vegan options for my family. While on the more expensive side including the spendy cocktails we headed out with high hopes. Tonight was the worst as we waited 20 minutes to order and were largely ignored by the waittess. Heck, it was the bartender who took our orders. This restarted the clock and it was another half hour before we got our COLD food. Groups who has been seated well after us were eating and just about finished when we got our plates. As dinner wound down the server was nowhere to be found. In the time we waited to box everything up, we just ate everything instead. This was easily the worst dining experience I have ever had.

My favorite wings in the metro area. Fries are great. Cilantro lime have been delectable and it's odd to find a place that has vegan wings for my family. Those are ok but good enough to convince them all to get out there every once in a while.

Clean and very open atmosphere. Owner plies his trade their and shared a lot about what went into the creation of his pizza. He really did his homework before settling on what would be a delightful menu. The Old Smokey was my favorite pizza and it was not one that I would normally order (had jalapenos.) But my favorite part of the visit was the tasty garlic and cinnamon knots. You have both an appetizer and then a dessert covered. Affordable, only wish it was a lot closer to Portland. Looks like more trips to Mt. Hood are in order to make sure I get out to one of my favorite pizza places.
