MLS Cup is almost here!

It is the Friday before MLS Cup folks. Time to get ready with some morning links.

Zendejas continues to shine with U-17s | FCDallas.com

On the other side this weekend, you get LA and their Hollywood story.

Don't be shocked if the Galaxy end up with Erick Torres next year. Just sayin'.

CBA battle set to be a complex one | SI.com

Once Sunday's game ends, the real battle may begin in the boardrooms and courts. Fun.

Alright, that is all that I have for now. What is on your minds this morning? Who are you pulling for this weekend?
