This week has blown by here for me. We have plenty to get to today on this site as FC Dallas is getting set to take on Chivas USA tomorrow. Our usual game thread will be posted shortly with all the usual goodies.
Until then, here are some morning links to get the day started off with.
// FC Dallas //
The veteran fullback is nearly back to full health here. We might even see him in the main 18 on Saturday.
I'm starting to think that Pareja had drastically different ideas for HGPs than Hyndman ever did.
We've been linking to stories from East Texas for a week or so but now this new is officially official.
Our pal Mo checks in with a blog post that looks at the 2013 season series with tomorrow's opponent.
// MLS //
In a way I am kind of bummed that San Diego loses out on a potential USL PRO club because of this.
They went with the circle one. I suppose that is good in the end, something simple is fine by me.
Yes to this post a million times. As great as it was seeing RSL come within inches of winning the CCL a couple years ago, MLS and it's teams have to stop comparing each CCL run after that to them. Their knockout round run was total luck.
Boy Arena loves to cry about the schedule.
Big news out of Seattle yesterday evening as the Sounders and Seahawks have decided to split up their business operations. This was something that was always a matter of 'when' not 'if'. I still wonder if this means one day they'll get their own soccer stadium in downtown Seattle. That would be pretty sweet to see.
Good, but will anyone notice?

I must say, every time I have beer from this brewery I keep holding out hope that I'll like it. Still, interesting can designs.
And finally our stadium tour takes us to Peru with Estadio Monumental 'U'.
Are you ready for Chivas this weekend? What did you make of NYCFC's logo? Feel free to discuss that and more below in today's comment section.
