Soccer fans and hockey fans are generally one in the same.

That's a generality that would not stand up to quantitative scrutiny. But it is true that similarities between the sports do attract some sports fans to both games. There's a much stronger correlation between hockey & lacrosse - especially in Canada - due to the even closer relationship between the two.

What’s the chances the St Louis team is good the first year? Haven’t followed MLS so I don’t know what to go on. Be cool if we Vegas it the first year! Been watching soccer lately to prep up and I’m getting into it. Good stuff!

Though 2-1/2 years old, here's a good summary of MLS expansion franchise success & failure stories ...

MLSSoccer.com (Feb 2017): A look back at the history of MLS expansion
Thanks, that was a good article. Based on that, there’s hope for early success with our expansion team. I’m getting into it. Watched the Sounders and a Galaxy last night and it was a great game.

Not that this is hockey related but with St. Louis getting an MLS expansion team, I have a renewed interest in MLS. Today they had their first team withdraw from the tournament that starts this week...FC Dallas has pulled out. Somewhat even bigger news is that MLS star Carlos Vela of LAFC opted out...he's pretty much the Connor McDavid, Mike Trout, and Patrick Mahomes of MLS.

I’m into the MLS now, started following it last year. Was not aware they had a tournament starting up, thanks for the tip. Speaking of Vela, too bad Ibrahimovic left the Galaxy, he was entertaining to follow as well.

LAFC is a fun watch...they are the model that teams should be following right now. No Vela though is a big blow for them. Ibrahimovic was great too. He and Vela didn’t like each other.

They're naming the MLS team the St. Louis Desks and Seattle is being named The Pacific Northwest Forestry Industry.

When the game is played at the highest level, it’s an amazing game. The World Cup is edge of your seat stuff and I really get into it. The MLS is what it is...I’m just happy to have another team in St.Louis to root for.

Would of been great if someone had bought the Hawks and brought them back to STL. They were for sale a few years ago.
