ALOTT5MA CIRCUMLOCTION DESK:  Although I care almost as little about soccer generally and the MLS in particular as Dan Rydell, I have a number of friends who are big fans, and let me know that there is a raging controversy about the propriety of the chant "you suck, asshole!" at MLS games.  However, when the NYT covers the story, hilarity ensues, as "asshole" is apparently forbidden in the Times style guide (though "suck" apparently is not), with the Times electing to describe the chant as "a more vulgar expression of 'You suck, jerk.'"
