Tonight is the night one team will be crowned the champion of MLS. MLS has a long, grueling schedule of 30 league games over 9 months with many other tournament games interspersed. Additionally many players get called to their national teams during an MLS season. So it comes down to tonights game in Toronto- FC Dallas vs. Colorado Rapids.
I got to see three Colorado games this summer in Denver, one was actually between these two teams. Next to the Wizards (I'm still not able to say Sporting KC yet), the Rapids are my next favorite team, but I'm not too passionate about them. Connor Casey is one of my favorite forwards and I like Pablo Mastroeni as a defensive center mid. FC Dallas has been pretty much a joke since they joined MLS. Brian Hough, my friend and our illustrious youth pastor, loves FC Dallas. He loves hundreds of teams (which change month to month), but I will admit FC Dallas is a team he has supported from the beginning. This has been a superb year for FC Dallas (especially if you like ties). Needless to say, Brian is pretty pumped. After church the Hough family will come over so we can view this game together. I want the Rapids to win, but I can't bear to see a grown man cry if FC Dallas loses. Wait a minute...yes I can!
WE ALL BLEED BURGUNDY!!!! OLE- OLE- OLE>>>>>>COLORADO!!!
UPDATE: COLORADO WINS THE MLS CUP, 2-1
