Darlington Nagbe had a breakout game for the Timbers

LA Galaxy 1-3 New England Revolution. Okay, I guess I just don't understand MLS at all. That any given Sunday shit usually might apply to other sports, but it doesn't seem to apply to soccer quite as often. This year and this league is suddenly different though. That, or the LA back line just sucks. This game was just all NE though. And Kelyn Rowe is pretty damn good.

Portland Timbers 2-3 Real Salt Lake. It took him over a year, but we've finally seen the coming out party for Darlington Nagbe. But Kyle Beckerman and RSL were just too much in the end. Stoppage time winners have been fairly common in MLS this year. It should also be noted that referee Mark Geiger, who is now a hispanic man with a full head of hair, had some tough calls to make in this one.

Seattle Sounders 0-1 San Jose Earthquakes. I guess I just don't understand MLS.

New York Red Bulls 5-2 Montreal Impact. Mistakes happen, it's how you react that matters. Aw dammit, Thierry Henry knows how to react too. I'm really starting to worry that it will be hard for anyone to beat him out for the MVP award this year. Three goals, but his assist to Mehdi Ballouchy was even better.

Philadelphia Union 0-0 Vancouver Whitecaps. What the hell is with Philly? In this game it looked like their best attacking player was Brian Carroll. The Union offense sucks so much that suddenly Sebastien Le Toux sucks too when he returns there.

Toronto FC 0-1 Columbus Crew. It almost seems as if the Toronto back line likes seeing Milos Kocic flail. Hey, what's with all the road wins this week by the way?
