MLS has released their 2013 Season Schedule.

A few tidbits from the article:

  • The 2013 Season begins March 2 (earliest start ever!).
  • The season will last 35 weeks and each club will play 34 matches, 17 at home and 17 away.
  • Each club will play the same in-conference matches as out-of-conference matches.
  • RIVARLY WEEK: Eight of the nine matches in Week 3 of the 35-week season will pit regional rivals against one another.
  • More than 90% of matches will fall on the weekends or holidays, with none affecting FIFA World Cup Qualifying.
  • The MLS Cup Final will again be hosted by the club with the better record. However, the Final will either be on December 7 or 8.

I like the idea of a Rivarly Week here, especially when you have matchups like Seattle-Portland.

I really hope so, as it'll cut the distance to the Stars' nearest opponent in half. I know Peter Wilt is involved, and he's a class act. [Edit: Watched the video; cool that they used the NASL final footage, including Lucas Rodriguez's great goal. Also glad they didn't use the part with Tampa lifting the cup. *sigh*]

Also, NASL is releasing the first-half schedule today.

Now, if US Soccer would just announce where the home qualifier in March is going to be...

I'd be going to that announcement if it wasn't in the middle of the afternoon. Might try to make it still though. Got my Scarf hanging right over my head as I type! 'Mon The Brickers indeed!

So, a friend of mine was on Ticketmaster and ran across this...can't put too much into it at this point, but it certainly wouldn't surprise me.

Don Garber is expected to be in KC for an announcement tomorrow.

Confirmed!

tarting to look like the NASL may be on the verge of announcing a new expansion franchise in Indianapolis, maybe within the next week.

'Bout time...Lord knows they been teasing folk about it long enough. Congrats, Naptown.

(Except I probably won't be around to see it by the time they start play... :( )

In light of the recent passage of legalized marijuana in WA and CO, it was only a matter of time before something like this happened. Real cheeky of the MLS schedule organizers to pull off a stunt like this...

California, New Jersey, and Massachusetts also legalized marijuana and clubs from those states are playing that day (Los Angeles will be at home against Sporting Kansas City; Red Bull New York is hosting New England). Therefore, you might be onto something.

:P

So it's official. The MLS is popular with pot-head hippies who are too stoned to realize what they are watching. It explains so much...

HEY! I know what I'm watching...... even if I tend to do so while consuming my body's weight in nachos and playing Dark Side Of The Moon over the commentary.
