The price is high, but the cause is just right

Not this jersey, but a blacker, more Halo-y one.

Seattle

The league took notice of Seattle Sounders' convincing 3-1 victory over an admittedly subpar Real Salt Lake, writing many nice things about the Rave Green.

Chad Marshall is auctioning off a game-worn jersey for a good cause. On top of helping a devastated family trying to put themselves together after losing one of their own to cancer, this is also possibly the last opportunity to grab one of the limited Halo 5 Guardians kits (did I mention it's signed by the team?)

MLS

The league is understandably keeping quiet on the DraftKings situation, because putting little snippets of information out once a week simply results in losing all power and respect.

Lee Nguyen is an MVP-quality MLS midfielder who is also a pretty nifty hat designer.

If wishing could make things happen in real life, the New York Red Bulls would have been sold and renamed years ago. Rumors of such a move have popped up again, but I'm not sure my heart can take any more disappointment. MLS Commissioner Don Garber seemingly tried to throw water on the idea, or maybe just sufficiently confuse everyone.

For eight MLS sides, Yesterday was the official beginning to the offseason. The hunt for better talent has already begun, including names like Vincent Kompany (after the end of his Manchester City contract after the end of his Manchester City contract.)

NWSL

Predictably, folks in Orlando are trying to justify the upcoming Alex Morgan deal as a good move for the expansion Orlando Pride (and maybe they're right.) Morgan for her part isn't talking about it.

World

"Okay, yeah, sure we paid FIFA to bring the World Cup to Germany," said Wolfgang Niersbach. "But it was totally legit you guys, we didn't do anything illegal." (Quotes aren't real, but paraphrased.)

A young man named Obama playing in Egypt scored a stoppage-time winner mere hours after finding out his mother had passed on.
