We can neither confirm nor deny that Portland’s SM crew includes Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne, but suffice it to say their work connecting the dots between Clint “Deuce” Dempsey and Andreas Ivanschitz was more “most annoying sound in the world” than “totally redeeming itself”.

Fortunately for us, Seattle’s toilet humor was a proper, since-deleted burn of a response. As captured by The Washington Post:


Full marks to the Sounders for not pointing out that Portland has a player named Peay.

Sigh. You can take the boys out of middle school...
