We're inching closer to the next FC Dallas home game.

Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

This week is going by nice and quickly here as FC Dallas continues to prepare for Vancouver. We'll begin to dive into that game some today but first here are some morning links.

Perez scores for Panama | FCDallas.com

This one came in after yesterday's morning links and may be a little dated after last night. But Blas Perez scored over the weekend for Panama while Je-Vaughn Watson went 90 minutes on Tuesday in Canada for his country.

[Note: Panama won 2-0 last night and will play in the 3rd place game in the Copa Centroamerica tournament, I'd pretty much expect no Perez for a third straight game then.]

Red Bulls move above red line | MLSSoccer.com

The Western Conference is rather dull compared to what is going on in the Eastern Conference right now. New York got a big late goal from Lloyd Sam to lift them over rivals DC United last night.

This win for Vancouver helps them out, almost kills San Jose's playoff chances in the same move. Both goals came off set pieces, something for FC Dallas to look out for this weekend.

Beckham continues to say Miami will happen | Bloomberg

Every stadium plan goes up in flames for David Beckham and his group but he continues to say that he won't give up on Miami. Alright then.

Man City should bring BWP to NYCFC | HITC Sport

Haha, okay, so this is a ManCity write-up saying that they need to get Bradley Wright-Phillips on NYCFC pronto. I guess they don't understand that there are some roster rules in MLS and that getting him from RBNY won't be that easy.

Real Monarchs. Yep, that is the name. Let that one sink in a bit. Still, as much laughing as we did at this name, I know all of you would rather be bitching and moaning about what silly name FC Dallas come up with right now instead.

Here ya go, one final link for the morning, a look at the playoff percentages. FCD is still at 97%, which is good. It is also looking like 46 may be the magic point number. But after last night, Saturday's home game got just a little bigger.

There ya go folks, comment below. One random question to ask seeing how it is the anniversary of 9/11, if you feel like discussing it, talk about where you were on that day. If you're like me, it is something you'll never forget.
