Garber Gabba Jibber Jabba

Don Garber just got finished with his anuual "state of MLS" address. There's probably better coverage elsewhere, but a few things stuck out to me:

* MLS is willing to field a fifteen team league in 2009.

* Part of the "founding priciples" of MLS was to have two teams in New York. Huh?

* St. Louis is the front runner to get the sixteenth team.

* No word on the progress of the Revs stadium hunt. Probably Kraft telling Don to keep his yammer shut.

* I think they tweaked the playoff format with the top three, not two, teams in each conference getting bids regardless of record versus teams in the other conference.

* The first few questions from the press were given by Transformers. Not the coherent cartoon versions, the movie abomination versions.
