[MLS ATTENDANCE] After just two games in two weeks, MLS was back in swing in Week 15 with nine games, including Montreal's first at its renovated Saputo Stadium. Despite the Euro 2012 distraction, the weekend's MLS games' average exceeded 18,000. For MLS team attendance rankings ...

* Chicago drew a season-high 18,526 for its 3-1 win over New York on Sunday.

    "Despite the Euro 2012 distraction"? Too funny,rather more like the main show to watch rather than a mere distraction. Euro has been very entertaining so far with being able to watch some of the best players in the world in action.
