The Los Angeles Football Club — which we suppose is a reinvention of the now defunct Chivas USA — won’t take the field until 2018, but it’s already the most exciting thing in Major League Soccer.

Exhibit A: he lead “The Tonight Show” audience in an LAFC chant during a live taping of the show.
Exhibit B: he plans on “wearing a lot of turtlenecks” and being “a George Steinbrenner-type” who will “hire and fire one manager 10 times in one season.”
