The MLS season is chugging ahead despite the attention monopolizing World Cup still going on, but someone within the league realized that one way to get noticed is by adding more props to the goal celebrations.
Dom Dwyer scored in the 33rd minute of Sporting KC's match against Chicago when the Chicago players put themselves to sleep with their own lackadaisical passing. After putting the ball past the keeper, Dwyer ran to a pitchside photographer, who handed him a phone. He then summoned a group of fans to huddle around as he put his arm around teammate Soony Saad and took a selfie.
Dwyer was shown a yellow card for excessive celebration, but at least he got a picture to remember the moment forever. And here it is...
You might remember that Columbus' Dominic Oduro ate a slice of pizza (made by a company he endorses) that he had waiting for him after he scored a goal in 2013. Oduro was not booked for that, though.
This was Dwyer's 12th goal of the season, putting him two behind league leader Bradley Wright-Phillips. Chicago's Mike Magee equalized just seven minutes later and the match ended in a 1-1 draw. Kansas City won the all-important selfie category 1-0, though.
