Big D Daily: News for Tuesday February 18, 2014

USA TODAY Sports

FC Dallas is in Florida, so we're left looking around MLS for other things to discuss.

I hope everyone on this side of the globe had a nice President's Day yesterday. Time to move forward and get ready for another day around Big D. FC Dallas is in Florida as they look to finish out their preseason campaign with a couple games this week before returning to Texas for one final show down on March 1.

Here are some links to get the morning started off on the right foot.
