The MLS - Spooky and Kooky!


After a disappointing ending to the Redskins OT loss to the Houston Texan's I needed a little something to make me chuckle.  Instead of ranting about icing the kicker reading Gwen's MLS bloopers was just the ticket.  Hope your favorite NFL team ended up with a win instead of a loss.



Halloween may be a month away, but the MLS , the LA Times, and our local real estate magazines never disappoint. This week's offerings include trolls and witches. By the time Halloween arrives, I'm sure a few more skeletons will be leaping out of somebody's closet! (No, Perez Hilton - not your closet.)  Check 'em out:

Happy Haunting

"Lake cabin under trees - enjoy fishing and haunting" (A place to Reel and Squeal)

"Garage with Trol Shed" (I suspect this is a ‘lake cabin under trees'...)

"Tree louse for kids" (Isn't the "trol" enough to scare the beejezus out of  'em?)

"Wired for cabal" ( A place to scheme and scream)

"Probait sale - needs cleaning. Crime disclosure" (What a pitch - macabre terms, worms and germs!)

"Levitated pool for the kids" (Good trick - can you also make a kiddie therapist appear?)

Put This on a Tombstone!

"New ho ttub and deck" (Pay ‘em and spray ‘em)

"Dock with boat rump" (Dock with crack in it?)

"New shitlap siding" (Note to agent: Haste makes Waste.)

"Low price spanks for itself" (Bend over and smell the clover.)

"Original prank floors weed finishing" (A joke and a toke!)

Not a Ghost of a Chance!

"Updated wasted lines" (Outdated, wasted agent.)

Hilarious!  But, sad that the sellers are not seeing many of these to know that they need to be corrected!

And, hey, I'm right there with you--we lost to the team that was expected to be the worst team in our division today!  So, the Panthers AND I had a lousy afternoon!!  LOL

Amusing list. A good day for my team- although I was not too popular being in Baltimore with a Carson Palmer shirt today!!!!!

Vickie-Gwen does a weekly MLS blunders column and they are always fun.

Debe-we've all seen our share of bloopers in our local MLS and wondered if the owners had a clue.

Elle-living dangerouly are you?  A Bengals fan in Baltimore is not quite as bad as a Cowboys Fan in DC :-)

Pam-the Texans had a great second half and of course an even better OT.  As a Skins fan I've gotten used to dramatic endings.

Lou-thanks.  We need a good season to give us devoted fans a reason to cheer.  Have a great week.

I am seriously cracking up...don't know which one is the funniest - these are great!

Susan-it's amazing how strange the MLS can be at times.  Gwen's posts are always good for a laugh.
