David is out cavorting, but Andrew, Matt and Arielle are around to hold down the fort. The Sounders remain mum, but Obafemi Martins says he’s on his way to China. While that shakes out, the guys wonder whether the Seattle could actually be better without him? It also seems the Fire have identified a Harry Shipp replacement, and C.J. Sapong is targeting 20 goals. Who else could break out?

In the second segment, adidas senior product manager Mike Walker (translation: the creative force behind MLS jerseys and team gear) joins Andrew and Arielle to explain the how, what and why behind this year’s kit releases. Make sure you stick around to see how your team’s look came together.

And, finally, in the mailbag, Sounders fans chime in on Martins’ impending move, and Andrew puts his foot in his mouth as the MLS reality TV train runs its course.
