New Milestones Upcoming for MLS
|No, this isn't about David Beckham.|
Goal #6,000 in MLS history is approaching very fast, and apparently without notice. Two years ago, it was Andy Williams who scored the 5,000th goal in MLS history. I had blogged about it a few times before in the early days of this blog, and I even sent an email to MLSnet asking them if they realized it was coming up. A week before it happened they had an article on their site about it, and I wonder if they would've known if not for my posting here and on Bigsoccer? I'd hope so. They (and Elias, I guess) seem to be better at this sort of thing now. The coverage of Houston's streak has been pretty good.
Anyway, we're currently at 5,994 regular season goals:
There are four games this Sunday, so we should see the milestone reached then.
Did you notice something else in that goal chart? That's right, MLS is about to have it's 2,000th regular season game as well. We're only 19 games away, and assuming no changes to the schedule, the milestone game will be held on August 12. That's a Sunday, and it's also when the Los Angeles Galaxy visit the New England Revolution. So there you go.
