The MLS might be turning a corner. The addition of Wayne Rooney’s brother John may just be the thing that gives the league credibility. If John Terry’s homewrecking brother, Paul comes to play for Toronto FC, we’re talking world dominance.
Maybe we’re overstating their importance a bit (understatement of the year). On the other hand, hometown love from ?uestlove goes a long way in establishing cred. Perhaps Jay-Z and LeBron should do the same and spread some of that soccer love here at home as well as abroad. Imagine the increased interest in the MLS if Jay got with the Cosmos or LeBron invested in the Crew (maybe he should pick a team outside of Ohio). Hell, simply attending matches would do wonders especially in urban areas where kids have yet to embrace the game as they do in the suburbs and more affluent areas. We’d get some better chants at the least.
