Houston's soccer may be world-class; Chron editorial page is not

The Chronicle editorial page is giddy about Sunday’s debut of the Houston professional soccer franchise:

It may have taken them a while to get their name straight, but Houston’s newest professional sports franchise, the Major Soccer League Houston Dynamo, staged a successful liftoff at Robertson Stadium Sunday.


In their previous incarnation the Dynamo won two MSL Cups, a good omen for its success here.


World class soccer will add another sports dimension to a city that continues to capitalize on the diversity of its citizens.

The Dynamo are part of Major League Soccer, or MLS. Not Major Soccer League, or MSL (as the editorialists put it).

It’s a shame that Philip Anschutz‘s world-class contribution to Houston is a soccer team. We’d much prefer a world-class contribution of a different sort, given the sorry state of print journalism in this town.
