Sunday, June 17, is Father's Day, and we're honoring all the dads out there who make their kids' time in soccer so special.
Here's the deal: Dads/kids, send us your very best soccer-related pictures of you two by tweeting the image to @MLS with a description and the hashtag #SoccerDads. We will be selecting some of the best ones and using them in a photo album on the MLS Facebook page. We can't wait to see your entries!
And while you're thinking about which awesome photo to send us, get in the Father's Day spirit as Sporting Kansas City's Teal Bunbury reflects on the impact his dad had on him. (Some of you may recognize the video from last year, but we think this story is timeless.)
Back on Tuesday, we blogged about Washington Wizards star point guard John Wall showing up at a club in Miami wearing not a D.C. United jersey, but that of rival New York Red Bulls.
Well clearly the front-office brass of D.C. United wanted to rectify the situation as United striker Chris Pontius (@chrispontius13) tweeted this today:

Perhaps Wall caught the highlights of the recent D.C. United vs. Red Bulls game and decided to ditch NY in favor of his city’s kit or perhaps Wall just prefers the black and red D.C.’s jersey offers if, after all, MLS gear is his clubbing gear of choice.
In honor of Friday the 13th, the players of Montreal Impact were asked what superstitions they have before game time.
Superstitions in the world of sports generally are a result of pre-game rituals which have turned into habit.
Some say athletes are creatures of habit, and if that’s true, these creatures’ habits include: 90’s hip-hop, a propensity to their lower left limbs, and gorging on Gummi Bears.
