The weekend is getting closer, I can nearly smell the tailgate and all the beer at Toyota Stadium. Mmm Saturday can't come soon enough, am I right?
Well, to help get us there are some morning links.

Holy smokes, so many goodies yesterday online from the club. Interviews with Chris Seitz, Oscar Pareja, Fernando Clavijo and more.
One of the better marketing campaigns from last year is back for the new season. Get all the details here.
I think this will be a good topic of discussion today.
It really is a night and day difference from when Benitez first joined this club.

Boy, I have to say I love the colors in their new kit. The hoops are an interesting thing though.
Honestly, I like how simple these new kits are for New England. Now if they could just fix that damn logo.
I know there were plenty more kits revealed yesterday around the league but I'll stop with this one. The Red Bulls wanted to lay claim to New York before NYCFC joined the league. They do realize they play in New Jersey though?
Might we see our old pal Pearce this weekend? Time will tell.
I think at this point, most of us here only really care about what goes on in San Antonio and Austin.
Some decent notes included in this long piece. The conference is deep, but just how deep?
Two words to get used to this season: replacement refs.

I wonder how many countries will begin doing this for every World Cup?
And our stadium tour today takes us to Cyprus, where the USMNT will play Ukraine at the Antonis Papadopoulos Stadium.
What do you make of the new jerseys that have been revealed so far this week? Upset/excited over the hoops look in KC? Let's discuss that and more below.
