2011 MLS Season Kicks Off

March 15, 2011

The 2011 MLS Season kicked off this evening in Seattle.  Quest Field was packed to the gills with screaming Sounders fans waving scarves in rave green.  It looked and sounded great on ESPN. 

The game was a little choppy but I was happy when the Galaxy buried a goal before the half to take a 1-0 lead.  I really wanted to stay up and watch the rest of the game but the 9:30 kickoff made that impossible.  Thankfully the GaLAxy held on for a 1-0 win and I did not miss anything by skipping the 2nd half. 

On a more general 2011 MLS level it should be an exciting year with the addition of Portland and Vancouver to the league.  Montreal comes in next year and I hope that the next expansion franchise is somewhere in the southeast.  Having the closest team 11 hours away in Houston stinks and I really hope an ownership group and stadium materialize somewhere in the Atlanta area.
