It was nice to see some playoff action back on TV yesterday with New England and LA winning their respective games in the first leg of the conference finals. We'll dive into that shortly with our morning links.

It was a fairly slow first leg for the most part yesterday afternoon in LA. Seattle still looked like they did against FC Dallas were they sat back in large patches of the game. LA was the better team and got the early advantage because of it.
Can anyone really stop New England right now? I really thought New York would have this game in their building but the Revs look like a team on a mission right now.
The attack disappeared against FCD and the LA defense basically just copied the blueprint FCD provided.
Jermaine Jones may simply be one of the best midseason additions to a team in the last five or six years.
Looks like the Times finally got around to interviewing Landon Donovan before the conference finals.
I'm still a bit shocked FCD hasn't also gotten on this bandwagon. It is paying off for the teams like New England that use a lot of data.
I'd just go ahead and bookmark Top Drawer Soccer if you have any interest in the SuperDraft. Here is a good start to some names you need to learn now. Hopefully FC Dallas finds a way into the first round to sign one of these guys. They also better make use of their ability to sign Boyd Okuwono.
Last one of the morning is a bit of a fun one. Nothing like using a large screen like this to play FIFA. I mean, that is what it is there for right?
That is all that I have for now. What did you make of the conference finals yesterday? Lets talk about that and anything else on your mind below.
