Good morning Union fans and other SB Nation goers who read the site.  May all your breakfasts be full of wonderful, beautiful math problems floating around in your head.

See what I did there?  I said "math problems."  Get it?  Math problems?  MacMath?  Hello?  Is this thing on?

Anyway here is your daily discussion thread as well as your place to lament how bad EA Sports made the Philadelphia Union are in FIFA 11.
