MLS in Cleveland?



Comedian Drew Carey wants to buy his own Major League Soccer team for Cleveland. Plans for an MLS stadium in nearby Macedonia are dribbling forward.

It can be a frustrating game. There are too many "1-nil" scores. "But you don't complain about a 1-0 baseball game. It's enormously hard to score in soccer. There are so many what-ifs and almosts," said Carey, who wants to buy his own MLS team. It would certainly fit here, in the capital of what-if and almost.

Carey likes the way fans, usually made up of true believers in this country, are so knowledgeable. "I went to a Cavaliers game," Carey said, "and I hated how they told you when to cheer. In soccer, you have to do something to get cheered."

This should make Magic happy.

Yeah i agree and i would love to see him as an owner of an MLS team.



I remember during the WC last summer i was watching the Travel channel and he made a trip to Spain where he visited Madrid and Barcelona talking about the the Barca-Real derby and how it compared to some of the rivalries we have in the states, it was a very interesting show. Also i love how he goes after the media for criticizing the sport for being boring because there is not a lot of scoring by saying "But you don't complain about a 1-0 baseball game. It's enormously hard to score in soccer. There are so many what-ifs and almosts,".

I really like Bill Livingston, he's one of my favorite sports writers.

But, if we get an MLS team, what happens to the Cleveland City Stars?
