To sports fans still in football withdrawal: MLS returns tonight!

Ahem, Major League Soccer is back. Portland hosts expansion team Minnesota United tonight and there is a big slate of games tomorrow. That’s good, this league ought to be good “NFL replacement programming” to keep me occupied until the major league baseball season starts.

Also, I suppose Canadians should be excited about the prospects of their local MLS teams, given how well they did last postseason, but fans in this godforsaken country of ours are too interested in following curling, as well as the National Hockey League. Who cares about a real sport that is popular the world over? Oh, well, that’s life in Canada.
