The MLS draft was today.
Sorry, *THE MLS DRAFT WAS TODAY!!!
Ugh, I can’t even fake it.
In soccer’s defense, all drafts are a gigantic waste of time–nevermind for a sport I have little interest in.
But during today’s MLS draft, there was a magical moment in an otherwise sea of nothingness that finally made me connect with the sport of soccer in a personal manner.
In the third round, FC Dallas selected UNC Wilmington forward Colin Bonner–a First-Team All-Midwest, First-Team Scholar athlete with a first ballot Hall of Fame Instagram handle.
Busted Coverage pointed out that Colin had changed his Instagram title since it became hot news. Now I hate soccer again.
