Chivas end winless streak against RSL | MLSSoccer.com

Ha! If you want to feel a little better about losing this weekend to Vancouver, it could have been much worse. The loss meant RSL didn't clinch a playoff spot this weekend either and the door is still open for FCD to make a pass on them in the standings.

Here is probably the best place to get caught up on everything that happened this weekend and then some. As the article points out, there is still a outside chance for FCD to sneak into a CCL berth too. So much riding on the final three games, so much. Also, the Fire now have 18 draws...18!

Sacramento hires local artist for design exclusive scarf | Sacramento Republic

Wow. That is all I am going to really say. FCD has done well with their scarf of the month thing this year but they need to take a cue on this and hire some local artists to design some scarfs next year.
