  • In 2008, New York lost the MLS Cup to Columbus after winning the Western Conference Final after finishing the regular season 5th in the Eastern Conference.
  • In 2009, Real Salt Lake won the MLS Cup after winning the Eastern Conference Final after finishing the regular season 5th in the Western Conference.
  • In 2010, Colorado won the MLS Cup after winning the Eastern Conference Final after finishing the regular season 5th in the Western Conference.
Until 2012 for the playoffs, MLS would take the top few teams from a conference and then fill the rest of the bracket with wild cards. More than once during this time I remember having to explain this oddity to a new fan of the league. Especially in 2009 and 2010 as Colorado and RSL were the two teams that would regularly show up on our regional sports channels.

SportsFilter: The Saturday Huddle

Tadej Pogacar stuns Primoz Roglic, set to win Tour de France.

I have only watched the last half of this Tour de France but today was exciting with all the story lines.

  • Roglic had less than a minute lead over Pogacar at the start of today's time trial.

  • Roglic team had been dominate all week in the mountains

  • Roglic and Pogacar are friends from Slovenia

  • Pogacar will win the yellow jersey (general classification), the white jersey (best young rider), and the polka dot jersey (King of the Mountain)

  • Pogacar will turn 22 on Monday

  • Porte, started day 4th and in his likely last Tour, will finish on podium in 3rd place. Again shows how close this tour was

rcade, Any update on SportsFilter Fantasy Premier League?

I am willing to help in any way possible but am guessing there is not much I can do :)

Gasly surprise Italian GP winner as Hamilton given penalty

Monza is a tough track but there seemed to be a lot of unusual mistakes by experienced drivers and teams. Makes me wonder if the compressed schedule of 8 races in 10 weeks has caused some fatigue. * Bottas going backwards at the start * Lewis and Giovinazzo pit stops * Haas, Ferrari, and Red Bull mechanical retirements

Just a thought :)

rcade depends on ultimate goal. Transfers are free until week 1. So, I just let the app autopick my line-up and I will go back later and pick my actual team.

heart rending sounds that are emitted when players like Neymar and DiMaria take a dive.

Are you watching someplace other than CBS? CBS had the artificial fan noise, which I find distracting at times.

I cut the cord 5 or 6 years ago, maybe more. So during big tournaments, I subscribe to some online service, watch my games, then cancel. I did YouTube TV (or is it YouTube Live?) last summer for Women's World Cup in France. Did a VPN service one winter for the Olympics as NBC had no online option and Canada and England had free options. Sometimes I get lucky as I get a week or two free trial, though I may have already used my CBS All Access trial on a March Madness one year.
