Proof MLS doesn't need #23 to make a circus of itself

>> Tuesday

Thank you, Drew Carey.

Last night on MNF, Drew Carey was on the broadcast to announce his involvement as a minority owner of a Major League Soccer team for Seattle, to begin play in 2009.

The Seattle team was announced today as the league's 15th club, with an ownership group consisting of Paul Allen (The Seahawks owner), Carey, and the ownership of the present Seattle minor league soccer club. A recent conversation with Jeff Cooper, head of the group looking to bring the league's 16th club to the greater St. Louis area implied that Seattle stamped their ticket to the league because Allen more or less dropped a sack of money at the MLS league offices on Fifth Avenue.

However, it's the nascent club's minority owner bringing in the attention. Among the proposals that the Price is Right host made to bring himself into the fold; allowing fans to buy membership into the club, and every four years, vote on the general manager on everything from the quality of play on Qwest Field's plastic pitch to the taste of the hot dogs.

Carey also wants the team to have a marching band.

Goofy marching band routines are alright for Ringling Bros, and college football and stuff, I guess. Not sure if I buy it for soccer.

Carey and Allen represent the league's 13th ownership group. 10 new ownership groups have entered the league since 2004. (Colorado, Chivas USA, Chicago, New York, DC, Kansas City, Salt Lake, Toronto, San Jose, Seattle)
