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.”


  • Edgar Castillo
  • April, and our conclusions from it
  • USMNT’s left flank
  • “Enhanced” water
  • SKC defender Aurelien Collin over the last month
  • New England goalkeeper Matt Reis over the last month
  • TFC’s Julian de Guzman over the last two years
  • Fernando Torres’s complaints (note: he’s complaining about his role in Chelsea and saying he wants clarity before next season)
  • Campaigns to save TV shows
  • Ridiculously overused (and highly imprecise) phrase “getting chippy”
  • Complaints over Sacha Kljestan’s omission from U.S. roster
  • Any version of “We’re better than our record indicates.”
