“[MLS] is not technically one of the best in the world but, undoubtedly, it has improved its level with the signing of great players and one important thing is that it is very competitive. For us it was important to have Julio Cesar playing and he’ll be playing in a competitive league."

-- Brazil’s technical director Carlos Alberto Parreira on Brazil's starting goalkeeper Julio Cesar joining Toronto FC. Parreira coached MLS's MetroStars in 1997. (Bloomberg)

The young American player...the dreams they have...that's what we should be thinking about! Solution: "Get your asses to college and get an education!
