We're Number 1! (In both standings and attendance)

Three sets of numbers you'll want to take a look at:

First, the current MLS standings, post-Week 2. We are sitting at the top, tied with Chivas on points (six each) but ahead on what I'm assuming is goal differential. (Eventually I'll research this. I think top tiebreak is head-to-head, which is obviously irrelevant when two teams haven't met. After that I believe it's GD.)

Also, please note that the only two undefeated teams are in the Western Conference. So take that, all you Western haters.
