Quick-hit list of people, places and things we noticed over the weekend that land on the over-done or overly praised side. Not necessarily awful but, you know, just “meh.”

  • Suggesting your team “deserved” a different result
  • Michel Platini
  • Any deficit for San Jose (pictured)
  • Most deficits for New England
  • Complaints about Joachim Low
  • Crawfish boils (tons o’ work, tiny reward)
  • Qualifying for Confed Cup
  • All-Star berths gained via Twitter campaigns
  • Sporting Kansas City’s shooting accuracy
  • Matt Reis doing anything but shot stopping
  • Liberal use of the “second” assist
  • Key lime pie
  • All the Seattle Sounders center backs right now
  • Quote-heavy, half-baked newspaper stories that basically say “Americans like soccer! Who knew?”
