NEW YORK - In an effort to capture a slice of the burgeoning interactive game market, Major League Soccer today announced a new MLS Digimon Stay app that will allow you to search for Digimon in the general area around your couch if you will just watch MLS on your television and increase the television ratings.
"We are excited for MLS Digimon Stay," stated president of Major League Soccer Mark Abbot. "It represents a new way for us to bribe fans to watch Major League Soccer games at home and increase our television ratings. We even have branded Digimon in the game as you can attempt to catch a wild Wondolowskimon that will continuously sit on your couch or sofa as long as you watch Earthquakes games through a Nielsen box."
Reportedly, fans greeted the decision with mixed emotions, but some fans were excited to have a reason to stay indoors even if it meant watching Major League Soccer games that they didn't care about in the first place.
"Honestly, I'll tune out of the games anyway," stated Walter Pulison to The Nutmeg News. "Plus, I don't have a Nielsen box, so it doesn't matter if I leave it running in the background so I can catch a Charizard.... Wait.... Digimon.... DIGIMON?! Oh hell no."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as the NASL reaches out to Tamagotchi for a product tie in.
