  1. Am I the only one who is way more interested in what’s happening domestically! MLS playoffs are more exciting this year then I can remember. Maybe it’s just me.

      • Rob – as a lover of Mexican football how can you make that kind of comment since LigaMX has playoffs too?

    • I am loving the mls postseason right now, as well! I am an LA fan but it’s been a long time since there have been this many legit contenders for the title. Dallas, Colorado, la, both NY teams, and maybe even Toronto all have a real shot. For myself, I would love LA to win, obviously, and if not them It would be cool to see the best player in the league get the hardware along with bradley and jozy at toronto; but my actual pick is Colorado. They are just too good on defense and unpredictable on offense.
