LA wins their third MLS Cup in four years.

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The storybook ending to Landon Donovan's career saw LA win yesterday over New England in dramatic fashion. We have a busy busy week ahead of us now that the season is officially over but lets get into some morning links first.

You may want to keep this link handy for a few days too by the way.

A little ICYMI from late last week on how well the front office spent in terms of points per game and what not.

Keane's late goal lifts Galaxy | MLSSoccer.com

Robbie Keane had a fairly bad day for a MLS MVP during the MLS Cup but all he needed was one good run and one good touch to seal the game and the title.

Crazy to think how well the Galaxy have been over the last few years. Now the real test will begin for them as they look towards the future.

Such a good pass and an even better finish.

Sigh.

Garber provides slight update on expansion | MLSSoccer.com

Another brief expansion talk from commissioner Don Garber but at least Texas fans will be pleased to see a little mention of San Antonio this time around.

RSL make Champions League with LA win | RSL Soapbox

Sigh (again). What would have been had FCD not laid an egg against Portland on the final weekend of the regular season. But then again, RSL is in no position right now to handle the CCL with their current depth so I feel alright about FCD not having to deal with extra games and travel that comes with this tournament.

Okugo signing with Orlando? | The Mane Lane

This would be a pretty solid get for the expansion side to get a young defensive type player like Amobi Okugo.

Michael Harrington to the Rapids? | Burgundy Wave

More moves from around the league, I'll just go ahead and say it...get ready for a lot more than just these two mention here today. This week should be full of moves and deals.

Alright, that is enough for now, what do you all have going on today? Happy with the result yesterday? Ready for all of the drafts and what not that come this week?
