It was only a preseason game. That is what we have to continue to repeat when things don't go our way this month. FC Dallas didn't come away with the ATX Pro Challenge title but they'll get their revenge later this week. But first lets get into some morning headlines.

Our pals over at BRU have their game recap from yesterday's match. I wonder if we can play for the Armadillo trophy on Friday.
// MLS //
Well, well, well. Toronto is going to get a bit wise and send Gilberto on loan outside of MLS instead of loaning him to a rival club (like they did with Matias Laba last year). My bet is they are hoping an additional DP slot will be added in the new CBA.
I feel that Diego Forlan is that one guy that many MLS clubs have considered but opted to pass on in the end. FCD 'discussed' Forlan a year or two ago.
Folks in Houston are excited about a keeper? I'm not sure that is really a great trade but we'll see.
A little Valentine's Day wedding for you as Dom Dwyer and Sydney Leroux tied the knot over the weekend.
We know more money and free agency is a big topic this preseason but what are the other items we aren't discussing? The World Wide Leader takes a look at some items being discussed at the table.
Another good article from ESPN here about why the players may strike and what really is going on. Loads of good stuff in this Q&A format.
One more CBA related post for the morning, this one is rather long but it is worth diving all the way into.
A fairly interesting look at how teams across the league fair at getting more guys consistent minutes.
Oooh, shots fired! Honestly, I'm with Peter Vermes on this one. But I also still believe everyone has a different definition of what fitness really is here too.
Alright, my morning coffee needs a reheat so that is all the time that I have. What say you on this rather chilly Monday morning?
