The MLS is growing ladies and gentleman.

  1. Great job keeping this up to date all year. I've been back every week :) Hopefully you are here next year.

  2. Also, use this picture on top. We don't use that XBOX tarp anymore!

  3. There is one more week of games though. I will also put up a final attendance article. I may put up game by game attendances for the top teams. Also I will provide week by week playoff attendances to top it off!!

    I will try to change the header soon! That is a great picture!

  4. I want to also say THANK YOU for maintaining this page! Great work!!
