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.”


  • Any DP that gets traded
  • Whining about a booking with cries of “My first foul!”
  • Calling something a “six pointer” in MLS
  • Calamari
  • Brek Shea trade talk
  • Mehdi Ballouchy (pictured)
  • Friendlies on MLS All-Star night
  • Prime rib
  • Competitive advantage these days at Livestrong Sporting Park
  • Kris Boyd
  • Players responding to belligerent fans via Twitter (No, we’re not talking about Hope Solo)
