The Silverbacks may have new ownership, The Storm have a new logo, and I need new pants.

Seattle

Be sure to sign up for the fourth ever SonarFeed Tournament as written about on Sounder at Heart HERE, then start playing FIFA like crazy because Stefan Frei is (according to well-placed sources) "sick with the stick."

The Seattle Storm have a new logo, and it's not so different from the old logo. But now, for the first time in a long while, all of Seattle's professional team color schemes fall in the yellow-blue spectrum.

This writer bears no ill will towards Minnesota Vikings fans. The fanbase reminds him of what the Seattle Seahawks were before their recent trip to the mountaintop, and would just as soon see the Purple People Eaters have some success of their own (or at least not lose in such heart-rending fashion as on Sunday.) That said, here is a reaction compilation video.

MLS

The MLS SuperDraft Combine has passed us by: See highlights here.

Real Salt Lake is looking to bring back Yura Movsisyan from their MLS Cup-winning glory days, in a move that's expected to be confirmed soon.

The goonies are gone: Steven Lenhart is expected to retire with a knee that continually fails to respond to treatmentCOULDN'T HAPPEN TONICER GUY.

We linked LAFC's logo unveiling last week and linked you to the new owners. Now see Will Farrell's standup introduction in full motion video. Mia Hamm's in too! Oh, and have more hot takes on their badge.

The new guys at Dirty South Soccer took the opportunity to grade every team on purely aesthetic merits, as God intended.

We'll find out this week what the NASL plans to do with the Atlanta Silverbacks.

We're getting close to the start of training, but there are still many MLS signings to be made.

Somehow the architect of the Philadelphia Dumpster Fire is now the Commissioner of the National Lacross League.

The main mass transit system linking Toronto to downtown will be closed for the first half of the MLS season. Luckily that's the half in which Toronto doesn't play home games.

World

New Laws of the Game have been approved, and will go into effect this year.

As Sepp Blatter's underling, Michel Platini was thought to have a good shot at presidency of the Most Corrupt Organization in the World.* So his decision to withdraw from the race is especially interesting. Oh, maybe it has something to do with that ban he received...

*Assumption, not verified. But a pretty safe bet.
