Greetings, and welcome to the first MLS Power Rankings in a world where Sepp Blatter is the outgoing FIFA president. Celebrate!  This is historic stuff right here!  FIFA gave us plenty to talk about this past week, but you know what?  So did Major League Soccer.  With 13 games, many of them incredibly exciting and going down to the wire, soccer fans were treated to a weekend of games with lots of goals (36 of them, to be exact).

Now, the soccer scene is heating up both domestically and internationally, with the Women's World Cup starting this weekend, friendlies for the USMNT and the U-20 World Cup going strong for your #soccerafterdark cravings.  So, now that the weather is starting to get hot, get your friends out to the games.  It's soccer season at its peak in the U.S., and it's going to be fun to watch it all.  But don't forget about your local MLS team.  Head on out to the local stadium and cheer them on, because these teams are starting to hit their stride and it's giving us some quality soccer to watch.

With several teams this week having two games, there was a lot to evaluate in this week's rankings.  We have a new #1 in the Sounders, while our beloved Black-and-Red goes down a spot but is still near the top of the Supporters Shield standings.  At the bottom, we have a new worst, but I won't ruin it here...scroll down to find out who that is.  Now, it's your turn!  Who's your #1?  Who's your worst?  Hit up the comments and sound off!
