The MLS Grinder: A Clasico to remember

Wondo, your MVP frontrunner at the turn. Game of the Week San Jose 4, LA Galaxy 3 There have been moments in the brief flash of light that has been MLS' existence that the league makes you stop for a moment and marvel. Goals, transfers and individual bits of skill often fill this void, though these moments of tempestuous brilliance are often kept at a reasonably low rate of return so as

The MLS Grinder: Week 16 winners and losers

The Grinder is in a break-it-down kind of mood this fine day. So no game of the week, especially considering two games (Seattle-Portland, DC-New York) pulled in even on the Parch-o-meter. Instead, we map out the MLS firmament by constellation, going one by one through our winners, losers and The Lost.

Bas Rutten: "Knee to da groin" Game of the Week DC United 4, New York 1 In the Barra Brava, the atmosphere rained down richly, chants and middle fingers and lager-infused songs spilling down harder and faster than the rain pelting and deadening the RFK playing surface. But on the field, there was little evidence of this being the most heated, longest-running rivalry in the league — the

Game of the Week Montreal 1, Chicago 1 It was a touching scene, really, for anybody who'd been invested in the Montreal Impact in any way since their rise from the snow and ice in 1992. It was more than touching for those in attendance. It was destiny manifest. Don Garber, a broad grin splashed across his face with the echoes of the native French-speaking PA announcer still bouncing off the

...Charlie Davies has been here for months. Unfortunately, Chris Pontius likely will not be. Game of the Week DC United 3, Chivas USA 0 Please excuse me if my commentary is more biting tonight than usual. Watching the Dallas Cowboys choke away wins has become a rite of fall in the Parchman household, but it never makes them any easier to digest.

Today's game of the week was a toss-up. In Kansas City, second-place Eastern party crashers SKC and third-place Western power FC Dallas squared off in a breathless match that threatened to derail first-place bids for both. In Seattle, second-place Western contender Seattle duked it out with Eastern-leading Columbus in a match that saw more than one history marker snapped like a brittle twig.

Game of the Week LA Galaxy 2, San Jose 0 Forget for a moment that this was the California Clasico. It was easy enough in the moment, anyway. Certainly by the 21st minute on Saturday night, the subtext had become the 31-year-old Irishman who'd flashed into MLS in the thick of the night. And then this happened and we all rethought how dominant we'd imagined the Galaxy to be.

The MLS Grinder: An Adu For You

No game of the week today. In the interest of keeping things fresh, I bring you The Big Story. The much heralded and somewhat triumphant return of Freddy Adu. Resembling a conquered and humbled warrior returning home with head bowed and shield in hand, the next year or two will be the most important period in Adu's lengthening career.

Game of the Week LA Galaxy 3, FC Dallas 1 Juuust when you thought those finger cracks in LA's foundation were starting to spider, Arena's boys bust out the spackle and shore this thing up with a beaut of a win over surging FCD at Home Depot Center. These teams aren't traditional rivals, but they've played some classy affairs over the last few years to grow this game into something bigger than

You wanna sit in that sun? Be my guest. Game of the Week FC Dallas 1, Chivas USA 0 There were certainly other options this week, a few other games equally worthy of this space. But I was at Pizza Hut Park on Sunday night to take this one in, so it gets the nod this week. That's my fine work over there.

Eric Brunner knows kung-fu. Dude's got a red belt. Game of the Week Seattle 3, Portland 2 What. A. Game. I'm glad the USWMNT's thriller Sunday morning went the way it did, because who knows if I'd have been willing to put in two hours to watch this beast in a disheveled mindset. As it was, I was so amped after Wambach & Co.

Now. "Gotcha!" Our lead story could easily go in Worst of the Worst, but I've decided to forgo a game of the week tonight b.

The Gold Cup is underway, much to the chagrin of Bruce Arena's Donovan-less Galaxy and the Wondo-less Quakes, who inexplicably aren't feeling the sting, as we'll get into later. And as soon as I start extolling the virtues of the league's ability to create goals, we have a weekend when only five teams score more than once.

It always kinda freaks people a little when I tell them that, yes, some European countries actually broadcast and follow MLS matches. I can't say for sure who all shows the games at a given moment in time, but at last check there were "MLS Game of the Week" telecasts in places like England, Portugal and Spain.

Actually, it was a bit more dramatic than that, as Rochester Rhinos' goalkeeper Neal Kitson scored this stoppage-time equalizer last Sunday evening to give the Rhinos a 2-2 draw with Antigua Barracuda FC in a USL Pro match.



It's unlikely Kitson will get on the scoresheet again anytime soon (he's the first Rochester 'keeper ever to score), but he'll be trying to keep the Harrisburg City Islanders off the score sheet when the two teams meet this Saturday at 5:30pm ET on the first telecast of the USL Pro Game of the Week on Fox Soccer.

Dickinson and Clear Creek were the top two teams in District 24-6A a year ago, with the Gators beating the Wildcats 42-20 to win the league championship.

Many early projections have the two in the same place, meaning their district game Oct. 30 should be one for first place. One of the most recognizable segments for Texas high school thinks so Clear Creek at Dickinson was announced Monday as part of the DQ Big Game of the Week.

However, other matches around the league saw tempers flair, and some of the usual suspects right in the thick of things as the red cards have already started to pile up.
