10 minutes with Matt Hedges | MLSSoccer.com

A very nice interview with our FCD captain. In this they discuss the USMNT, the playoff picture and his work in the recent #VoteForTesho campaign. My biggest wonder in all of this, did they clock the interview to get exactly 10 minutes?

Columbus unveil new look | MLSSoccer.com

Some rebrands in MLS have gone pretty well, others have been iffy. But I think what the Columbus Crew did yesterday was brilliant. A lovely, in-house designed logo that kicks out the old hard hat guys and ushers in a new era. I love the German look to this, some folks may not realize how much German heritage Columbus has here.

I now nominate New England to ditch this old bag of bones for a new look now too.

Well, FCD didn't clinch last night with a Timbers loss to the Quakes. Instead, the Timbers ran all over San Jose. These final three weeks are going to be interesting.

Still in good position but I know all of us would feel 100% better if they just locked this playoff spot up this weekend.

While the NFL side in the Twin Cities wants a team for their new stadium, the group surrounding the NASL side may have a strong pitch if they can get a stadium plan together soon enough. I know that is the group MLS would probably rather have in the long run in that city.

That is all for today, lets discuss the Crew's new look below. Have they elevated themselves to the top in the logo department in MLS? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
