Just flipped on the TV, soccer on, thought it was a WC replay. Nope, MLS. Toronto is playing NY on the worlds tiniest soccer field. Its ridiculously small.

Unbelievable by Rooney.

Not sure why (because MLS obviously) the goalie is out in a 2 2 tie to allow this, and then the shortest guy on the field gets a free header the other way...but the effort from Rooney is above and beyond.

That play by Rooney tonight is one of the best individual sequences I’ve ever seen.

Nice to see Jozy well rested after his red card and redeem himself with a hat trick.

3-peat Canadian Champions for TFC! At least they will have Champions League next year.

Pardon my ignorance, but will the Calvary and teams in the new league be part of and/or have to qualify for this Canadian championship in a few years?

Yes they will be in it. However the structure is still in discussion as to how adding the cpl teams will change the tournament.

I'll be pretty excited if I get to watch Toronto FC in Calgary, but I'm going to be sad about being torn on who to cheer for. This must be how Leafs/Habs fans felt when the Flames moved to Calgary for the first little while.

I really hope there is a strong opportunity between the MLS teams and CPL teams to play each other either through the Canadian Championships or even through preseason games. Having teams like TFC, Impact and Whitecaps playing games against the CPL teams will be great to improve the success of the league.

Anyone see the Zlatan interview on TSN? I can’t find a clip on tsn website or I’d post it. It was amazing. His memory is remarkable.

Speaking of Zlatlan...his 500th goal tonight was fittingly audacious and athletic.

Zlatan, on Michael Bradley.

Quite the game going now between Portland and Seattle. Half the Portland players thought they had won after extra time but didnt realize away goals don't count in extra time.

2-0 ATL final.

Cincy joins MLS next year followed by Nashville and Miami in 2020.

Don Garber confirms this weekend that MLS will not stop at 28 teams. Not a surprise with the massive expansion fees new owners are paying to join the league.

The seven-year-old anthem singer stole the show. Congrats to ATL.
