MLS Playoffs Begin Tonight, Showcasing League's Parity
The MLS playoffs begin tonight with "no clear-cut favorite" to win the MLS Cup. Whitecaps President Bob Lenarduzzi said, "MLS has done a good job of establishing parity. You look in the East and I don't think there's a massive gap between the fifth-place team and the top team and it's the same in the West" (Portland OREGONIAN, 10/31).
Full Sail Univ. students "helped film, light and document the opening sequence" for ESPN's MLS playoff coverage, marking the "35th project between the school and ESPN since they launched the Full Sail University Sports Lab powered by ESPN" in '10. The opening sequence features a performance of the song "Champion" by rock band The Chevin (ORLANDO SENTINEL, 10/31).
