We'll Do The MLS All-Star Game Live Blog Next Year, Promise

Running a live blog during All-Star games as quickly become a tradition for us here at The Bucky Channel. However, we missed out Thursday night and failed to do a live blog of the MLS All-Star game. We know there are a few of you out there that like soccer, so it wasn't number that was deterring us. It was more so the fact that I don't have cable right now. By the way, when I look back on these two months I lived with out cable, I will never quite understand how I did it.

For those of you that did watch, I understand you saw a pretty good game. The MLS All-Stars beat England's West Ham United by a score of 3-2 at BMO field in Toronto. For those of you that don't know, the MLS used to do the traditional "East vs. West" format for all-star games, but as switched to forming an all-star team and taking on a European club. I like this format, and the MLS is now 5-0 in such contests.

You would hope the MLS never loses these things because of the fact it is the entire league taking on one team. Also, the fact that the MLS plays a summer schedule while most of the world doesn't start until the fall should almost guarantee these guys victory every year. These MLS guys are in mid-season form, while the All-Star game serves as a preseason tune-up for the European club.

If you're interested, you can read the recap of the game at If you're not, you can still watch this video of Rob Stone with Toronto FC's mascot, "Bitchie the Hawk" (courtesy Awful Announcing).
