We're moving nicely through this week as we're at the midway point. Time once again for some morning links.

A nice little interview with our rookie.
I totally meant to post this yesterday, or maybe it was Monday. Either way, here is a good look at all the numbers from last Saturday's game.
The Mexican side still dominated this one at home but this is going to be something pretty cool that Walker can brag about to his teammates here in Frisco and throughout MLS. Not many people can say they went on the road and scored there.
It was certainly good to see Kellyn Acosta back on the field this past weekend. Time to see more of that as we move forward into the last 10 games.
// MLS //
Both MLS sides were on the road last night in the CCL. Portland won in Guyana (which is basically in South America...such a long trip by the way), but Sporting had to come from behind to get a point in Nicaragua.
Here is a good preview of the DCU side of things as they prepare to return to the CCL. I had a debate with someone over the weekend about DCU and how for one their new stadium should hold at least 45k because in their words "it would always sell out" and two that them being successful in MLS again is good for the league, "like the Yankees being good" kind of thing. Weird debate folks, but cool to debate random MLS teams with non-soccer folks.
I hope he over looks Friday's game.
Such a tough, tough break for the former FCD defender. To me that almost kills the Rapids' chances of making the playoffs this season too.
This saga never seems to end. MLS playing their usual cards with him as well have made this even more entertaining.
