    That Thierry Henry guy is good. Classy finish.

    This was awesome. Pure class on the part of the Sounders, also on Spurs.

    Hate the Sounders team. Love (and envy) their first class organization.

    Interesting ... Soccer By Ives had a story up that DaMarcus Beasley was going to sign with MLS, and then took the story down.

    I saw a rumor in the MLS daily email, too. Interesting to see if that happens.

    He's almost certainly signing with MLS, and he'll be an interesting test case. Just about every team has honest use for a player with his skills and experience. But, almost no team has a pressing need that corresponds with his salary demands under the cap

    and it's official. Beasley is back to MLS and with Houston Dynamo.

    Columbus is said to be in talks with a striker (though, to the rumor mills chagrin not Terrance Boyd and not (thankfully for my sake) Chicharito).

    Jermaine Jones still linked with a move to MLS, potentially just waiting for the league to create a new rule to let him sign with L.A. Galaxy.

    And, DeAndre Yedlin is rumored to be finalizing a transfer to A.S. Roma that would see them pay Seattle Sounders about $4 million, and loan the youngster back to them for the next 12 months. Speaking of bending MLS rules ...

    Welcome officially to the MLS, Super Frankie Lampard!

    Pointy G and I await the Lampard-to-Villa connection that will surely dominate the league.

    Will Frank Lampard emulate David Beckham and find a convenient excuse to miss every trip to Columbus? I'm curious, not bitter.

    But, seriously, my hope is that NYCFC are buying Villa and Lampard in part so they can put young guys in the locker room, and have those two teach them how to win.

    (Even if Henry looks a bit like Tim Howard)

    True fact: 2 of the 3 Galaxy goals were scored after I turned the game on.

    So, I'm going to the RioT tonight. My third different MLS stadium (man, I need to increase that number). Should be a good game. Last time I saw the Metro Energy Drinks play, Henry spent the night half-assing it. Hopefully, no repeat of that.

    Philadelphia Union have signed Raïs M'Bolhi

    Better known around here as the goalkeeper who gave up this goal:

    Storming off the pitch after a friendly is about the most lol thing I've seen. Pep has always been an arrogant ****, but a friendly..

    Breaking news: Landon Donovan is retiring.

    No doubt, the current Greatest of All Time for US Soccer.

    Galaxy play in Denver later this month
