Monday “Meh” list: quick recap of the slightly overrated

Community shield

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.”

  • Community Shield
  • BeIN Sport (until it gets into more darn systems!)
  • Ipswich Town as a potential landing spot for Maurice Edu
  • Chivas USA’s playoff chances
  • Gatorade (Man, that stuff’s not some kind of magic elixir!)
  • “Keys to the match” feature on broadcasts
  • Overly chatty analysts on broadcasts
  • Home-field “advantage” at Gillete Stadium; the Revs are 29-25-20 there over the last five years
  • Store credit
  • Pyrotechnics to spice up the pre-game national anthem
  • August FIFA international dates
  • Any deficit for San Jose (That’s repeated from last week, but sometimes these things deserve an encore)
  • Houston’s Luiz Camargo
  • August
