    Seriously. She named it after seeing a picture of George Brett in national geographic.
    So when she says "I've never seen a diamond in the flesh" she means she's never been to a baseball game...

(To my mind, it also doesn't seem any more silly than the fact that Barcelona is a multisport organization but brand their other sports in the style of "FC Barcelona Basketball".)They do it that way in Australia too; "soccer" is the term they commonly use, to distinguish from Aussie rules football, but the teams have names like Sydney FC and Newcastle Jets FC.
      As ridiculous as it is, Salt Lake City has taken to it.

        It's only pretentious if you're an over serious snob.

            Fun fact, the song was written and sung by Branden Steineckert of Rancid, a huge RSL fan. Lars Friedriksen of Rancid is a huge San Jose Earthquakes and wrote a song for them.

            edit: Found it.

            The MLS Western Conference should be called the "Hipster Conference".

                True. Rancid is definitely not hipster. But a lot of the Earthquakes fans? Hipsters.

                          After the initial start, there's usually a lull until August when the window closes. I do think we see some U.S. players get looks for international deals.

                            Landon Donovan is not the All-Time US leading goal scorer.

                            I understand her point, but this is a silly argument.

                                Her point is stupid. You can't compare stats across genders when they don't compete directly against one another, or at the least compete in vastly different skill levels. For all I know, there's some level local USL player who's scored more goals than anyone. But that wouldn't make him the all-time leading goal scorer, either.
