If you’re a New York City FC fan, this week’s Major League Soccer honor roll doesn’t arrive full of surprises. You saw Rodney Wallace beasting on chumps up and down the pitch at Yankee Stadium on Sunday. You noted Alexander Ring’s eminent readiness to rumble (beeteedubs, his next yellow card will earn him a suspension). It’s time to raise a glass, gents. Or a fallen enemy’s cracked-open skull. Whichever.
In other news, David Villa is David Villa and he does David Villa things and they are good things and also OK.
