Not long ago, I had the privilege of covering pro soccer when the San Jose Earthquakes played the New York Red Bulls. My post-match recap and this brief story on Earthquakes midfielder Bobby Convey went up on the MLS homepage (and each team's website) shortly after the game.
Looking down on a large, exuberant crowd from the press box made me realize just how far MLS has come since its inception -- high-quality play and crowd enthusiasm are now plain for even the most casual observers. Very exciting stuff.
If you're a soccer fan, make sure you check out MLS's new website -- they're still working out the kinks, but it's pretty dynamic and a dramatic improvement over the previous incarnation.
