They Don't Love You Like I Love You: An MLS Map
So I like maps. The real ones as well as the song by Yeah Yeah Yeah's. Don't ask me why but I just do. To me a good Rand-McNally Road Atlas is just as engrossing as a good Neil Strauss book (I recommend The Game if you're trying to up your mack-factor).
And as I know I'm not alone in my love for cartography of all kinds --because men love them, it's just that we don't need them when we are driving-- and soccer I'm going to point you to this map that I saw over on Beau Dure's USA Today blog. It's a map detailing the origins of every player in the league and it's probably the geekiest thing I'll see all day. And I love it.
You know what is crazy though. There are more Jamaicans, Colombians and Brazilians in MLS than Mexicans...and those guys live right next door! Mind-blowing. And the country with the most players in the league behind the U.S.? Argentina...because it's the new black.
