Bummer. Bummer. Bummer.

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Last night certainly was a bummer for FC Dallas as they fell in the semifinal of the US Open Cup on penalty kicks. We'll dive into that later today but first here are some morning links to help you recover.

Heartbreaking heroics |

Fabian Castillo, Blas Perez and Tesho Akindele really poured their hearts on the field last night to get the game tied up.

The final word from Pareja |

The FCD manager gives us his take and feelings following the loss.

Pareja proud of the effort despite the loss |

Tough when you have to make all three subs around halftime and most of them be defensive.

MacMath responds to demotion by pushing Union into the finals | Soccerly

You really have to give it up to Zac MacMath for saving two penalties last night. In my book, he is one of the biggest reasons why they left Frisco with the win.

Gordon happy to be back in LA |

Interesting comments to hear about how frustrating he was in San Jose at the end of it all.

Two storied teams gun for their place in the USOC final |

So now it is Chicago and Seattle's turn to make it to the final. I guess if I had to pick a team left, it may be Philly. Though I could make the argument that having Seattle win would be best for everyone right now.

Eddie Johnson just can't get out of his own way |

At least we're all now EJ these days. Geez.

Red Bulls trade for Sene | Once a Metro

Saer Sene for Andre Akpan. Yeah, and the Revs get allocation money in the deal too. I think New England won that trade but this may be more about winning now for New York than anything else.
