It was a lot of fun last night watching the US women knock off Germany to reach another World Cup final.

Big clash tonight for FCD against a very good SKC team. Lots of questions in this one for me, which we will dive into later on today.
If you missed the big party last week, FCD has you covered with a look at what it was like through the eyes of our favorite mascot.

Some folks love the idea, others hate it. I think our staff is a little divided on the subject but we'll get into it today as well. One thing to remember is that not all the supporters groups of the various teams are involved in this little thing.
It really should be no secret that things with the Union aren't as rosy as they should be. Their owner barely makes an attempt to pour money into the team.
Another club in a weird spot is the Rapids, who continue to ask if Pablostache (RIP) should be in charge. Honestly, I don't think he is the full reason for their failures as of late. I'd put a lot of blame on the front office for signing junk.
Because of course the Galaxy are able to add another DP.
Yes, on the surface it was good but I would still argue that the league has to get more creative to get a full blown weekend where nearly every game is a rivalry game. Why Toronto-Montreal was on the midweek was weird. No RSL-Colorado was strange as well.
// Women's World Cup //
You saw a lot of good moments out there last night with this team as they actually played like a complete group.
It has been a slow build up to this point for the US women but between the Germany game and the China game, we're really starting to see the team we expected to in this tournament.
People continued to doubt Jill Ellis for good reasons but right now the woman needs a lot of praise thrown her way.
