The battle for 15th place in Major League Soccer intensified after a weekend where DC United was able to win, Orlando City SC drew and the New England Revolution lost.
"I don't know if I can take this kind of epic situation," stated DC fan Carlos Herrera. "15th place in a 20 team league is really beyond my wildest dreams. I mean, 15th place! My god, have you thought about it! We are only 18 points off of the supporters shield! I have to pinch myself awake every time I look at the standings and realize that we are actually 8 points above the worst team in the league."
Reportedly, Major League Soccer is excited that the 15th place battle in the league is so tight this season as inside sources stated, "Things are really starting to hot up down there. Hopefully one of the teams can make it into the playoffs in order to be canon fodder for the other teams in the east that make it early. 15th place is something every fan can be proud of! 15th place should get a trophy! Every team should get a trophy! Trophies for all teams!"
Even despondent fans of the New England Revolution have hope as Revs fan Chuck Daniels stated, "It's going to be just our luck that we will squeak into the playoffs somehow, the front office won't fire Heaps, we will lose the USOC final, we will lose in the first round and then nothing will happen.... again.... again."
