The big USOC showdown with Colorado is finally here as FC Dallas is back in action tonight.

This one came down late yesterday afternoon as FC Dallas is finally getting rookie Timo Pitter the minutes he needs here up in OKC. Hopefully his legend can truly be born up there.
Concussions are a bit of a pain, let me tell ya. Thankfully for Ryan Hollingshead, he appears to be healed from his that he got earlier this month against Houston.
I continue to think that Weston McKinnie will eventually be signed by FCD this season. Also, good to see Coy Craft go off with a national team as well here.

The Player of the Week race was pretty one sided for last week. You can see how I voted in this poll as well.
The USOC games for the week got started last night in Salt Lake as Seattle was able to outlast RSL on penalties thanks for their backup keeper making some big time stops.
Two of the bottom teams in the East squared off last night and somehow the Fire pushed through. I'm going to go ahead and call it, I can totally see teams like Seattle and Chicago advancing far in this year's USOC.
I doubt we'll see Howard in goal tonight for the Rapids but ya never know. Still, you do have to feel bad for the guy he is beating out in goal in Zach MacMath who has most of the top marks for keepers in the league right now.
So maybe he does start tonight? Again, we'll certainly see.
Vancouver looks to be a in a bit of pickle when it comes to one of their main attackers. I still believe this group won't make the playoffs this year when it is all said and done.
Clint Irwin is out for the next few weeks, which means Toronto has to figure out what to do between the pipes.
