New England Revolution vs. San Jose Earthquakes #NEvSJ
Let’s start the week where last left off.
Where excitement lingers like a cough.
Jacking off to nil-nil draws.
And gesticulating at bad calls.
How fast England of New can fall.
When their Jones hits a germane wall.
Football played on a pitch this bad.
Makes one forget what one once had.
Impact de Montreal vs. Orlando City Soccer Club #MTLvORL
Retire now and forever young.
Lions have a purple tounge.
Canadians seem to have no fun.
When a Champions League is to be won.
Around Kaka they play like shit.
They tippy-tap around the pitch.
When lack of sun shrinks brains of men.
Is when a pen brings you down to ten.
New York City Football Club vs. Sporting Kansas City #NYCvSKC
Lampard sits in his box up high.
Perpetuating an age old lie.
Promoting a diamond encrusted charade.
A diamond shaped field a branding parade.
A denigration of the holy sport’s show.
Of footballing angles and sidelines aglow.
Second class athletes play on others lawns.
Second class football brings nothing but yawns.
District of Columbia United vs. Los Angeles Galaxy #DCvLA
See what makes the good teams fold.
Inside the crumbling stadia of old.
Olsen is young not old and bored.
He knows wins are earned when goals are scored.
But Arena’s wins come from the book.
The book he wrote on thoughts he took.
Nothing original in locking it down.
But life is complete when you make the Bruce frown.
Columbus Crew Soccer Club vs. New York Red Bulls #CLBvNY
Mellow Yellow won’t give you wings.
Petke’s absence a lingering sting.
The Ides of Marsch still trundle on.
As spectacular as a New Jersey dawn.
While a rebranded crew of vagabonds.
A mishmash shape of missung songs.
Put together something strong.
Because jobs don’t last here very long.
Houston Dynamo vs. Colorado Rapids #HOUvCOL
This game looks like a nap on paper.
A pleated slack without a taper.
More boring than one would hope.
More boring than one man can cope.
Both teams gave up before they tried.
The Soccer Gods have wept and cried.
Banish them to the bottom lands.
If it gets too bad let them use hands.
Football Club Dallas vs. Seattle Sounders Football Club #DALvSEA
You want to see that both teams lose.
But reality is that you have to choose.
But draws can suck the momentum away.
And when it’s said and done that day.
The way they play won’t tell the tale.
Won’t show you ways in which they fail.
Cause end-to-end means nodding off.
And both defenses can be soft.

Chicago Fire vs. Philadelphia Union #CHIvPHI
You can’t expect another draw.
When losing games is all you saw.
Flashes of flame from among the coals.
A lack of guts not lack of goals.
The least of east won’t rise like yeast.
Dark Magic Mike a wounded beast.
Set the Shipp sail and hope the best.
Which bad is better is the true test.
Real Salt Lake vs. Toronto Football Club #RSLvTOR
Pay the price for the price you paid.
But don’t make a bed in which you have laid.
Leave it for others to do unto you.
When wealth of the many goes only to few.
Holes in your wallets holes in your mind.
A whole lot of something from nothing you’ll find.
Put it together but don’t sell it out.
Pull off a result without strutting about.
