We're nearly at the weekend here as FC Dallas heads to Chicago to snag the Brimstone Cup.

I keep having to remind myself that Kellyn Acosta is only 20-years old. The kid is playing like a big time veteran right now on the field. Thankfully he hasn't even come close to his ceiling yet as a professional.

Kudos to Montreal for coming out to support Didier Drogba as he arrived in his new city the other day. That is how you make a big star feel welcomed.
Apparently NYCFC insulted Orlando last weekend in their meeting a bit. Now the folks in Orlando are writing about it.
This is a little extra from the SI.com piece that we posted but DCU was nearly the D.C. Revolution. Yeah. Lots of bad names were floating around back then and I believe Dallas was originally going to be the Doom or something weird like that.
It continues to be hard to ignore the attendance rising around the league. Though, it is also hard to ignore that attendance has been fading here for a first place team too. #justsaying
I've been beating this drum for a while now as I think it is time to make the switch, even if it is just for a year.
In other news, the league owners still want to let everyone know that they are still losing money here. But at least Garber continues to say that the league is in investment mode instead of just spending for fun mode. I can wrap my head around development cost more than the other right now.
Well of course Garber is going to say the league is clean despite all that is going on in CONCACAF at the moment. But to be fair, it doesn't take much to be cleaner than CONCACAF.
