The week is starting to fly by here as FC Dallas is getting set to host Sporting KC this weekend. We'll have plenty on that today and tomorrow but first here are your morning links.

Just a little ICYMI type link to start us off today, Watson is back in Dallas after his winter hold out. Hopefully he can provide some instant upgrade at right back.

Even though Steve Davis is writing for the club, it doesn't mean his weekly column is going to always focus on the team. Here are his quick takes from the week.
Nice to see some TV numbers go up in the first week of the year. I think for someone like UniMas it helped not having Chivas USA as the first game of the year this time around.
The passing numbers were way down for Portland in the season opener, maybe that was due to no Will Johnson.
Nothing like a cruel mention of FCD in this one but I give credit to these NYCFC fans for trying explain why they are the kings of the Big Apple now.
RSL didn't have their little guy in the season opener due to injury and it showed in their attack.
It is interesting how many more eyeballs are taking notice across the pond these days.
So wait, what? This is rather crazy if this is true. They never released the CBA in 2010 because they basically didn't sign a new one. They just added to the previous one. Interesting. No wonder the players were pissed this time around.
Playing at any sort of stadium that isn't a soccer stadium is risky but playing in a baseball park is certainly setting yourself up for a potential disaster.
A couple of league sources have let ASN know that Minnesota is the front-runner, while Miami continues to be a puzzle that is missing a few pieces.
A business degree that focuses in on soccer...or it mostly focuses in on getting an internship with the Rapids. I keep thinking that I've missed out on some wild degrees in college that are around these days though. What will they think of next?
Alright, that is all that I have for now. What do you all have to say today?
