Atlanta United and Minnesota United haven’t kicked a ball in MLS yet, but they’ve already got the social media banter that MLS teams are known for down pat.
Late on Monday night, the Loons’ official Twitter account posted an innocuous tweet about their front office working hard to prepare for today’s Expansion Draft.

Considering they have three players on their roster currently, they better be hard at work.
Atlanta United’s account retorted with a humorous picture of their front office “working hard” as well:

This was obviously a joke, but with 14 players, including two Designated Players, on their roster already, it’s safe to say that Atlanta are probably a little more confident heading into today’s festivities. Well played, Atlanta United social media manager...
It should be fun day. Who’s ready?
