New MISL Not Even Attempting to Appeal To Soccer Fans
In case you where wondering what's going on with The League Formerly Known as MISL, there will be an announcement on September 16th that will reveal the details on indoor soccer's latest incarnation. But all you really need to know is that the revamped league will be called....wait for it....wait for it....the Xtreme Soccer league.
Seriously, I'm not making it up. And if that didn't make you say "Oh dear" in the gravest tone you posses, the league is coupled with the Xtreme Soccer Xperience. According to the press release this is "more than an indoor soccer league, the XSX is an energetic and innovative 12-month experience built around skilled soccer professionals, entertainment and fan participation — both live and online." I'll reserve judgement until Sept. 16th but it sure sounds like a bad video game doesn't it?
Somewhere, Monster Energy Drink and Mountain Dew are fighting it out to sponsor the 2008 Xtreme Soccer League All-Star Game.
