Thank You. Excellent question, Anonymous... "Why Gordon and Lewis?"... "Are we really taking the CCL (and its competition and competitors) seriously?"

I knew I smelled "L.A. Galaxy P.R. swagger and nose-up-in-the-air", sell - sell - sell, drown 'em with stats fodder as soon as I saw it posted on the MLS and LA Galaxy page.
