I hope it stays cold when they come here. The Mexican teams were absolutely hobbled by that.

They absolutely can, but the injuries are starting to pile up and that could be a problem. Even at 7-12-12, Chivas are probably the equal to a top flight MLS side.

The New York/Chivas game today had one of the most ridiculous box scores I've ever seen. NY outshot them 20-1 and 9-0 on net, but the game ended 0-0.

The NYRB are an absolute choke artist team. Throw the match against Colorado on Saturday. We could be going to the World Champions League boys, what a time to be alive. Best 12 month span in Toronto sports history

Raptors best record in the East, second best in the NBA, most franchise wins.
Leafs most franchise wins and points, going to the playoffs for a second year in a row, first time that's happened since 2002-03, 2003-04
TFC: best record in MLS history, MLS Cup champs, off to CONCACAF finals
Argonauts: CFL champs
Blue Jays: Start 8-4 on the year

Decide a championship with penalty kicks.... Soccer is so fucking stupid.

You gotta admit, Bradley's penalty kick was fucking hilarious.

Feels like they got robbed by circumstance. Chivas were dogshit against each of Seattle, New York and TFC, and Seattle and TFC were both completely ravaged with injuries. TFC had literally the toughest possible matchup they could have faced in each round and still made it to the finals. They even had to re-qualify for this tournament and win the Canadian Championship a second time after Canada Soccer changed the qualification rules midstream.

Not much you can do when literally every central defender on your team was hurt going into the final leg and your second and third best penalty takers were hurt and unable to participate in the shootout.
