Well, we didn't win any silverware this week but there is still hope for a big prize at the end of the playoffs.
// FC Dallas //
They got the win over San Jose (their first season finale win sine 2003), but the Shield did not come to Frisco.
Even though NY won on some tiebreakers, FCD easily had the tougher road to 60 points this season.
Hey, a 4-0-1 month in October was pretty fun to watch. Not to mention some big wins down the stretch in the final months of the season.
Interestingly enough, had FCD won the Shield, Pareja was prepared to be pretty mum on celebrating it. Still, a win is a win, am I right?

Congrats to NY though. They did earn the points this season to get them to this place. I do take some solace in knowing that Shield winners rarely win the MLS Cup.
The first go of this type of season finale was indeed fun. My ADD was running wild with so many games going on at once.
Yep, another one praising it.
He not only lead the league in goals but also in assists. That has never happened before.
Holy moly. 5-0 to cap the season? Impressive Columbus, impressive.
Things just don't look good for the Fire these days, no matter how you look at it.
A very interesting look at MVP voting, which has always been known as who scored the most goals or who is the most popular player in the league.
This news came down on Friday but it is important as the new MLS side in Minnesota will be in St. Paul in their own new digs.
