The wait is over as FC Dallas claimed their first trophy in nearly 20 years last night.

Some say the USOC is the easiest trophy of the bunch to win, but in some way it may also be the hardest. Either way, it is coming to a trophy case near you.
Dan Hunt wore his dad’s favorite tie last night and the result was a trophy. I think you’re going to need that tie more often here Dan.
I mean, three assists and a goal on the night. We were talking about it in the press area last night that there probably hasn’t been a bigger single-game performance like that in club history.
Lost in this game will be how FCD went down six minutes into the match on a Diaz turnover.
Losing not one but two players to injuries in the first half was killer for New England last night. They struggled to respond after FCD turned up the heat in the last 20 minutes of the first half.
More praise and love for Diaz and his performance last night. I got to wonder what this will do to his confidence as well.
Say it with me again, three assists and one goal. That is going to be the stuff of legends.
One down, two to go. Now I am okay with talking about the treble.
I don’t know about you but that scarf and t-shirt combo are going to be very popular around these parts.
Our friends in New York posted this yesterday afternoon. If you haven’t seen it, it is definitely worth the read with regards to FCD and the USL.
And now this:
And if that doesn’t pump you up...Oscar Pareja will:

Uh, four goals and two assists in a single weeks is rather ridiculous.
This is a really interesting question, when does a team’s current era begin?
