A true oh-fer
I don't pay a super-duper lot of attention to the EPL other than to see that I'm winning my fantasy league (check!), the Americans keep playing well (check! -- hopefully that includes Bones next season ... he'd be a good replacement for SWP at Citeh) and a passing interest in how Liverpool is failing ... er, fairing. I'm much more excited by Champions League.

But I noticed this week that Chelsea is on a roll again. They are 6-0-0. And, get this, they haven't even given up a goal yet. They're six points clear of their closest competitor and the only challenge I see for them this year is if they can win the Treble and finish the Prem season without giving up a goal.

Meanwhile, in our own backyard, the Eastern Conference of MLS, with less than five games left in the regular season, has five teams that could win the conference ... and one of whom will miss out on the playoffs.

Hrm. Maybe "mediocrity" does beget excitement after all.

So does that make DCU the last team to score a goal on Chelsea? Or did ACM manage one?

Haha! Yeah, Milan managed to snag one against them (and so did Arsenal in the Community Shield) but it's a nice thought.

I know that Galarcep was bemoaning the Kansas City to the Eastern Conference move in his most recent article. Yeah, the Western Conference (sans San Jose) seriously blows, but it's worth it for all the excitement that playoff race in the East has generated.
