Weekly Column: MLS opening weekend

59007-FirstKick2012.jpg

Monday night’s Portland Timbers-Phildelphia Union contest, played on national TV before a wild capacity crowd undaunted by a driving rainstorm provided a fitting culmination to an opening Major League Soccer weekend of action that generally bodes well for the coming year.

I spent much of the weekend glued to the MLS Direct Kick free trial and trying out the new Storify app for the iPad as I followed the weekend action.

Some observations on the opening weekend are here in today’s regular Tuesday column.

Also, two local pros are edging closer to playing in the London Olympics.
