All that plus CONCACAF CL success for MLS and another less-than-great development for the Revs

Hello! My brain is quite scattered at the moment. Lots of soccer happened! In non-soccer news I just read this article on Atavist that was quite good. It kind of reminded of some funny/tragic Shakespeare thing, but also Indiana Jones. However I’ve never seen Indiana Jones so I probably shouldn’t make comparisons. Indiana Jones is on my “Movies I should have watched by now and should watch sometime preferably soon” list. Others include Borat, the episode of Star Wars that everyone likes and the Godfather. List could go on. Anyways, soccer!
