We would recommend watching the following video after you've eaten breakfast--preferably several hours after and with the notion in mind that you won't want any lunch.
This from Friday's MLS match between the Sounders and Colorado Rapids. Only three minutes in, Rapids' midfielder Brian Mullan came charging in from about 20 yards away from Sounders' winger/striker Steve Zakuani and delivered one of the most brutal and completely-uncalled-for slide tackles ever seen.
The tackle snapped Zakuani's tibia and fibula like twigs and sent his leg flopping around in stomach-turning fashion.
Mullan was red-carded and tossed from the game for the tackle, but not before hiding behind a ref like a wuss. Seattle ended up winning the game against the understaffed Rapids 1-0, though the victory somehow felt hollow.
The league is now considering hefty fines and a possible suspension against Mullan for the move.
Meanwhile, the Sounders are down 2010's highest-scoring player with 10 goals and six assists (two scores and two assists already this year), and MLS is left without one of its most exciting and talented players.
