Team name rumors, ahoy!

The first serious rumor regarding the MLS team's new name has popped up, and if it is to be believed, the club will be called - the Greens?

Yup. And it gets better. According to the aptly named MLSRumors website, the official name will be Emerald City Seattle Football Club with a nickname of 'Greens.' Seriously, that's twelve syllables. It's like they couldn't decide between 3 different names, so they combined them all into one. It's a ridiculous moniker.

Fortunately, we're pretty certain that there's about zero chance that this is true. So deep breath in, deep breath out, and relax. With the naming announcement over months away, expect more of this type of speculation and/or rumor mongering.

We're not going to do this very often, but today we're going to mention a non-soccer related thing. Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man to reach the peak of Mt. Everest, has just passed away. The humble New Zealander summited along with Sherpa Tenzing Norgay in 1953, and devoted much of the rest of his life to helping reforestation and education in Nepal. His charity earned hundreds of thousands of dollars a year for the country.

As one of the greatest and kindest explorers ever to walk the earth, we salute you, Sir Edmund Hillary. Rest in peace.
