Can I haz a Samba?

Happy Friday Spursland! So in case you guys haven't taken the time to look at any sports website in existence, everyone is shoehorning the words "title" and "Spurs" into the same headline in the past few days. For some reason I doubt that most people doing so actually believe it. I find it condescending and dumb. Or maybe I am just not used to not being an underdog.

What's happening around SB Nation after the jump

Your SB Nation MLS Super Draft Coverage- SB Nation Soccer

What exactly makes this draft "super"? It doesn't make MLS sound any cooler that you just tossed the word super in there. It looks like you are desperate for attention, which you are, but pointing that out to everyone in the media is a great way to get ignored. Unless you are from a mildly prominent Hollywood family and have a giant ass, then it apparently works really god damn well.

Well at least it is nice to know that it isn't just a slow news day over here.
