It is a little Tax Day edition of the morning links. Hopefully all of you have filed yours away and got refunds. Lets get right to it with the links.

One last thought on the Colorado game right here from yesterday, I tend to agree with the line that it was an off day and not something that will just become the norm around here.
Cool looking features on both Blas Perez and Fabian Castillo. Really cool that Castillo is considered "Next" by the magazine.
It is all about moving forward from the last two weeks against Toronto on Saturday.

Apparently it may not be a European team this time around, which I kind of doubt is the case. We will certainly see though.
I bet some of you forgot that current New York Red Bulls technical dude Ali Curtis was a Dallas Burn player for a few games back in his playing days. I still root for Curtis when I can since he was a coach of mine for a short time back in the day too.
It is going to be very, very interesting to see how Montreal does in Mexico. They got a favorable result against Pachuca earlier in the knockout round down there but we all know how tough going to Mexico City can be.

I'm sure this is a two-way thought and that the US feels the same way. Yet we get the big money grab matchup a couple months early this year.
The temporary grass came in a tad too close to the game, which continues to beg the question as to why venues with turf continue to get big games like this.
The MLS Now video series takes a look at the best rivalry on this side of the globe.
I bet you didn't know that this rough rivalry with Mexico really dates back to the mid-1930s.
That is all for now, what do you all expect to see tonight with the US game?
