Pareja excited to see Zimmerman with the U-23s |

It has been a long journey back to the national team for Walker Zimmerman. Last night he was in the starting lineup and went the first half in the 3-0 win over Mexico's U-23s.

Castillo is the key for FCD during the spring |

Montreal earns historic draw in the Azteca |

Sure they gave up a late goal and were screwed out of a red card call before halftime. But the Montreal Impact did something that no other MLS club has been able to do, earn a result at the Azteca in Mexico City.

Ronaldo's choice MLS city appears to be LA |

It sounds like Cristiano Ronaldo will come in 2018 and likely go to one of the LA teams. My gut tells me right now that LAFC comes into the league in 2018 now with him as the center piece to start out with.

Alright, that appears to be all for now. Enjoy the day folks!
