Is the game still delayed?

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

I'm willing to bet that some of you have no idea what day it is after dealing with the long delay on Saturday night. I think I finally caught up on some sleep here but now it is back to the work week. We have plenty to dive into today but first here are you morning links.

What did the press do for three+ hours on Saturday | 3rdDegree

Oddly enough, the first home game I missed this year was this one. But it sounds like my pals in the press box kept busy and well fed too.

I always enjoy this video package that FCD's digital crew puts together, especially following a win.

I agree that in the second half, the Reds began to look like a different club. I'd also argue that the rain and lightening were a bigger factor in slowing FCD down.

Our SBN friends up in Toronto weren't too happy with the long rain delay either.

Good to hear that our old HGP London Woodberry is back in MLS and is doing rather well with New England.

LAFC had a chance to get one of the better soccer academy guys in their market but instead they let him slip away to the enemy.

A fairly interesting take on how HGPs are doing in MLS right now in comparing them to some EPL sides right now.

How NYCFC can help move the needle on the salary cap | Hudson River Blue

I should point out that this came out late last week but it is still worth a read. Definitely an interesting look at how some owners in the league were handling the last round of CBA talks. I think it is fair to say we'll eventually see a shift from the cheap/conservative owners like the Hunts and Krafts and move closer to those that want to spend more.

This one is rather long but it is cool to see interviews with so many media panelist to see what they'd do. The soccer part of this is interviews with Alexi Lalas and Taylor Twellman (of course). But I'm all for both of their answers.

Alright, that looks to do it for now. What do you all have to say today?
