With Major League Soccer playing its championship game this Sunday, sportswriter Stefan Fatsis takes the opportunity to examine the league's overall performance -- both on and off the field. There's been little audience growth, and it appears the league has not yet broken through in popularity. But ownership's deep pockets are keeping it going. On the field, the Kansas City Wizards and the Chicago Fire face off in Washington D.C. this weekend in a game which features Chicago's high powered offense against Kansas City's tight defense. Stefan also makes brief mention of England's difficulty in World Cup qualifying matches and the approach this spring of the new women's soccer league in the U.S.
