Save your Eric Hassli votes

It's MLS goal of the year time, and MLSS is handing the reins to the fans this year. You'll pick between four goals in four pods from groups A-P. First-round voting ends Oct. 29, when we move on to the second round and on and on we go until Eric Hassli wins by a LBJ-esque landslide.

Hassli's thunderbolt isn't included in the first four groups, but you can be sure he'll be in there eventually. Just to jog your memory...


As a reminder, here's your defined MLS playoff sked for this week, with SKC and LA awaiting results to get their matchups. Times are EST. And unfortunate for FCD that their wild card game at home against New York begins roughly during the third inning of the Rangers' inevitable victory to assure their coronation as baseball's best (okay, so that may be me projecting a little. Sorry, Greg, but your boys are going down). Set the over/under of fans at that game at 5,000 and I might take the under.

WILD CARD
New York at FC Dallas, 9 p.m. Wednesday (FOX Soccer)
Columbus at Colorado, 10 p.m. Thursday (local)

CONFERENCE SEMIS, 1ST LEG
Seattle at Real Salt Lake, 10 p.m. Saturday (FOX Soccer)
Houston at Philadelphia, TBD Sunday (ESPN2)

The ONLY reason the Cardinals have not already won the Series is because we have the monstrous handicap of Tony LaGenius, the worst "manager" and biggest lying asshole in baseball history.

And an asshole daughter, too...

Speaking as a Redbird and a St. Louisian... a constant, deep embarrassment.

Good grief.

I long for the simple days when I can merely dislike him for "managing" by computer program while everyone calls him a genius.

Ugh. UGH.

@Greg: Not to change the topic or anything, but what have you heard about Arsenal scouting Ream tonight. Is that news? Is it even true?

Wouldn't they be better of scouting the Dallas defenders?
