MLS Lacks Showmen
To the casual observer, MLS might strike him as a league lacking enthusiasm, the foundation of any popular sports league. Ives Galarcep of the North Jersey Herald pins the problem on the dearth of entertainers in Major League Soccer. If you had the pleasure this weekend of watching Ronaldinho, the world's best player, beat up on Athletic Bilbao, you know what he's talking about. All of Ronnie's flicks and tricks were on full-display as Barcelona cruised to an easy 3-0 win. So too was his wide grin-the Brazilian almost always appears to be having more fun out there than anybody else.
Ronaldinho is an entertainer extraordinaire, something MLS sorely lacks. As it stands, MLS the product certainly isn't something you watch for the best soccer entertainment. In fact, far too many MLS games are downright boring. Some will say that's not entirely fair-the league does boast the likes of Dwayne De Rosario and Christian Gomez in addition to having had great players like Marco Etcheverry and Mauricio Cienfuegos. But who replaces these guys?
