We're inching closer to the next home game for FC Dallas as they host Philadelphia tomorrow evening. But first some morning links.

Castillo has learned plenty from his red card in Portland | Soccerly

Hopefully that is the case, he'll miss this entire month of MLS games because of that outburst. Thankfully the USOC, a friendly and maybe some reserve league games will keep him hot and fresh.

Follow this guide and vote your little hearts out.

Getting to know AJ |

I like these little Q&As that FCD's digital department is putting together these days. AJ is one of my favorite guys to talk to, so get to know him a little better here.

I'm alright with teams below FCD in the standings beating up on one another.

Got the soccer bug from the World Cup run, keep it going |

Could Rhode Island be the next home for the Revs? | The Bent Musket

Woah, that seems a little strange but if it works, it works. Either way, the Revs need to get out of that NFL stadium ASAP.

Donovan - US wasn't set up to succeed in Brazil |

He's talking tactically...alright then.

Howard sees a bright future for the US with or without him |

I honestly think, baring any injury, he'll be there in Russia in 2018.

Hunting White Elephants in Manaus |

A long read here but a good one about the Amazonian stadium.
