Major League Soccer Plans European Expansion

For several unknown reasons, the NFL, NBA and NHL are all flirting with the idea of beginning franchise teams in Europe. Major League Soccer, North America's most unprofessional sports league, is also joining the European expansion craze.

"We need to assert ourselves," said MLS commissioner Gary Strongbreiger. "We won't be looked upon as a joke-league if we plant teams in cities like Manchester, Madrid, Liverpool and Rome."

"After all, we've got Beckham. Nobody turns down a chance to see him," Strongbreiger continued.

"Even if he's just sitting on his ass," he finished.

Following the announcement, David Beckham publicly expressed his desire to leave America and return to a more civil society.
