Help me pick an MLS team

    So I'm so sick of the NFL and its collection of drug-using, dog-killing thugs I've decided to support MLS.
    I actually think that the MLS could come up with a helluva marketing campaign to exploit the general blahness some feel about the coming NFL season, but that's for another day.
    But I need an MLS team to support. Lots of love for Beckham right now, but I need to reach deeper.
    I don't live in a city with an MLS franchise, even though a popular rumor is that MLS will play an exhibition game here next season.
    So without having any geographic ties, I feel free to pick any franchise.
    And it can be for any reason. Cool unis, popular players, kickass team (squad?) or just because.
    Anyway, feel free to fire up suggestions.

    What characteristics do you generally like from a team you follow?

    I root for the Chicago Fire, but only because I like the name.

    Hockey's a better choice.

    Maybe he already has one of those.

    The Kansas City Wizards are cool. C'mon, they used to be called the Wiz, and nobody beats the Wiz.

    Columbus Crew ... if for no other reason than the really stupid name.

    That, and when they first started, they had 3 starters from my alma mater's team, so I used to watch them.

    I haven't watched an MLS game in 10 years, though, so I probably really can't help you.

    The Galaxy jerseys are cool. That's as good a reason as any.

    Based on my experience, I'd consider the Red Bulls.

    Yeah, the name is cheesy and the uniforms aren't the greatest (if going by uniform, it's D.C. United in a runaway). But the stadium experience is quite nice, especially with the right guides.

    Colorado's new unis are cool.

    DC's jerseys are awesome, least if they still look like this one they are.
