The MLS Is Expanding, With Or Without Beckham

David Beckham — or "Becks," as apparently people call him, though we've never actually met one of these people — could make his MLS debut tonight, maybe, for a few minutes, depending on whether or not he's feeling up to it. But no matter what's going on with Beckham, the league itself is moving forward.

The MLS is healthier than we had thought, apparently, because it's preparing to launch an expansion team. The current leading city is Seattle, which might, you know, have a basketball team to replace.


Seattle has clamored for a team for a while now, and the city feels it put its best foot forward — foot — when its USL team the Sounders beat the Colorado Rapids 5-0 in one of those "friendlies." We're not sure it's a good sign for the MLS, though, when one of its teams is losing 5-0 to a lower-division American team, you know?
