We are quickly zeroing in on another FC Dallas game here as the club has traveled to Canada ahead of tomorrow's match.

The home-and-home set with the Whitecaps over the next week is really a good playoff preview for everyone involved. I think if you get four points out of these two games somehow, FCD really sets themselves up well for getting a top two seed in the West.
Really cool to hear Kellyn Acosta get some radio time this week. I wish I had that Chipotle card as well, that sounds pretty sweet.

You really do have to appreciate the rivalry that Portland and Seattle have here. So much that coaches take shots at one another in things like Hall of Fame speeches.
I've been pondering this more and more over the last couple years. We know MLS is built on parity but when you see teams like LA win three out of the last four or five titles, you have to think that the parity isn't that real. It just a mirage more than anything.
I hear ya Jozy, hamstring pulls in big games along with things not working out in Europe. I get it.
Seems so hard to believe that it has taken TFC all of these years to finally get into the playoffs. Can you imagine not seeing FCD in the playoffs for seven or eight years in a row? Yikes.
Maybe it was the win over FCD, or the USOC win. Either way, SKC looks to be back to their normal (and dangerous) self on the field. Just shows how damn hard the West will be to win this year.

So many little things to watch in the CONCACAF Cup that is coming up. So many things.
