Like many a FIFA player, I’ve slaved for hours on those fun but at times maddening little skill games, spending way too much time trying to get golds on everything for absolutely no real benefit. As entertaining/frustrating as that can be, it appears that playing the skills games in real life is even more fun, as demonstrated by these MLS guys.
(Aside: do MLS players obsess about their stats in the game the same way NFL and NBA players do? Can either of these guys—Jack McBean and Jordan Hamilton—be all that mad that their respective overall ratings are 62 and 64 instead of, like, 65 and 68? The mind wonders.)
