    I wouldn't be surprised to see Becks as part of a post-AEG Galaxy ownership group, at some point down the road.

    I think that short term, he'll be in China or Australia. Probably China.

    Congrats to Fedrico Higuain for being named MLS newcomer of the year!

    Much better choice there than the Grown Ass Man as Comeback Player of the Year. Eddie Johnson had a great year, no doubt, but what exactly did he come back from?

    That one gets a big "who?" from me...

    Touché.

    But seriously, Pontius totally deserved the award.

    But seriously, not sure the award needs to exist.

    I think that the term "comeback" needs to be clearly defined. I like the award itself, even if it isn't a major one.

    Don't look now, but San Diego's professional soccer club is nearing in on a title in Mexico. Club Tijuana notched a 2-1 victory over juggernaut Toluca last night, meaning they need to only protect that lead in the Final on Sunday. It'd be a real historic feat for the Xolos, who are in only their second season in top-flight Mexican soccer. Not to mention the American influence on the team - not just the location but Edgar Castillo and Joe Corona are regular starters for the Xolos, and Greg Garza is a youth prospect for the USMNT.

    I am on at a bar. 15 TVs showing Bama-Georgia and I am watching MLS Cup.

    That's classic, Inty!

    Landon Donovan needs to get rid of the beard.

    2-1, Galaxy. I think Davis makes an impact, but it's not enough for Houston.

    Wide open so far. Houston unlucky to not get the early goal.

    Wow! What a chance for Landon. How did he miss that?

    Nice run setting up the goal for Carr. Galaxy really should be up, but they haven't been able to capitalize yet.

    Gorgeous strike from a great timed pas to put Dynamo up 1-0

    The timing of that goal is awful for Galaxy. Just awful. Need to come our with aggression to start second half. Dynamo better team in possession, so LA are in need of chances and finishing.

    They've looked good so far, but still haven't got the goal.
