The Aggregate Line - March 11, 2016

It’s time for your Aggregate Line for Friday March 11th, and things got off to an interesting start to say the least. This gem of a tweet from ESPN’s Baseball Tonight host Karl Ravech has us all wondering exactly what soccer he’s been watching…

Not quite a full week since we were treated to some Week 1 action, but Week 2 kicks off tonight as Orlando City welcomes Chicago Fire to the Citrus Bowl after that shocking come-from-behind draw with 2 quick goals in stoppage time. 

Bon anniversaire Didier! Chelsea legend and Montreal Impact absentee Didier Drogba turns 38 years young today. Drogba was last seen training in sunny California on real grass with Sacramento Republic FC of US Soccer's third tier United Soccer League. In case you were wondering, his knees also turn 38 today. 

Weather person Karli Ritter has some competition, if you ask me! Kansas City, Missouri’s Fox affiliate station welcomed Graham Zusi and Connor Hallisey to present the weather forecast to promote their home opener against the Whitecaps this Saturday. Not too shabby boys, but take my advice…don’t quit your day job. 

NYCFC’s manager of marketing and occasional midfielder Frank Lampard visited New York City’s iconic Empire State Building to promote NYCFC’s home opener against Toronto FC this Sunday. Lampard has been a bit of an enigma since signing with City Football Group back in 2014…let’s just say some fans are getting a bit upset. Although Frank probably won’t feature in their opener due to a nagging “injury”, we hope to see him in powder blue sometime soon.

If you haven’t already checked it out, Episode 27 of the Total MLS Podcast is available on iTunes and Stitcher for your listening pleasure. Our very own Dustyn Richardson and Mark Kastner take a quick look back at Week 1 and give a bit of a preview of what to expect in Week 2 action.

That’s all for today’s edition of Aggregate Line! Enjoy your Friday!
