Much has transpired this winter while the Masked One was away.
- The capitalist overlords who run the International House of Soccer have stubbornly pushed MLS to the brink of ruin in their blind and brutal beat down of the workers. Talks continue to get a new collective bargaining agreement. El Luchador predicts the season will start as scheduled, but the dispute will drag on well into the year with a real potential for work stoppage before the play-offs.
- Schelotto stood his ground against party boss Mark McCullers and will stay another season.
- The Crew signed strength up front to replace Alejandra Moreno with the signing of Columbian Sergio Herrera.
- And Jed Zayner launched, then apparently killed a blog that was at times entertaining, vulgar, informative and even occasionally grammatically correct.
