An MLS love letter

Dear MLS,

It warms my heart to have you back in my life. My existence is incomplete without you by my side. Those three months out of the year when you leave are the longest of the calendar. Day after day longing for the moments of pure joy and excitement you bring me.

You've only been back for one day and you've already proven how amazing you are. The world-class goals you allow me to witness, the comically bad defending that make your games so fun, the utter ridiculous refereeing decisions that make us all laugh. It's all one big ball of amazing wrapped into one weekend each week and it couldn't make me happier.

You are not perfect. Who in this life is? It's your imperfections that make me love you even more. The outside world doesn't understand the love I have for you. I get mocked and ridiculed for showing my affection, but I don't care. Let them point and laugh while we enjoy a true bond.

There is so much about you that makes others angry, but when I see you all I see is your inner-beauty. The abnormalities and confusing characteristics that you possess make others cringe, but they just attract me to you that much more. Your rules and regulations make as much sense as a dolphin buying a jump rope, but I don't care about all that. I just want to be with you every day and not think about anything else in the world. There's no other out there for me. I am lost without you. It's so good to have you back, you crazy, insane, ridiculous, amazing, beautiful bastard.

With Love,

Rob Usry
