The MLS All Star Game: , played in a rain soaked field, pitted the US Men's National Team (sort of) against the best of the MLS (sort of). Results and more inside...

Interesting game when we weren't getting rained out (57 minute rain delay) or being subjected to an awful half-time show. The teams were pretty even, but the MLS All-Stars triumphed in the end. This game, combined with the state of the league address really encapsulated US soccer this year - a bit of a mess, a bit too optimistic, a bit too full of itself, but able to provide some great games.

I saw some of the game after play resumed. Man, that was a lot of water. With a few more inches of water in that one corner they could have been playing water polo. I think any state of the league address is going to be a bit full of itself. Still, some good information out there. The new stadium in LA is going to be a good thing, and it was good to hear that the plan in NJ might still have a chance of happening. No expansion, of course, but that just gives us another year to gab about it.
