Rain and Seattle artificial turf. Sigh.
My annual reminder (with @BrianStraus) of what would be a better MLS playoff structure…
Just as pumped for Seattle-LA as I was for Real Madrid-Barça #SorryMLSHaters
If you missed it: Obama demonstrates proper protocol for handling a health care worker declared Ebola-free.

That Madrid counter blew my mind. Fantastic comeback. Barça not capable of dealing with a force of nature.
Did the US just miss the 1st 20 seconds of the 2nd half?
Words Ray Hudson has used today: "throbbing", "an eel covered in Vaseline", and "Jack and Jill nursery rhyme". It's still the 1st half.

This Clásico is insane. Ray Hudson might spontaneously combust.
Luis Suárez starting for Barcelona vs Real Madrid. Fantastic.
You know soccer has made it in the US when Swansea-Leicester is being shown on national network television.
Real Madrid-Barcelona transitions nicely into Seattle-LA on Saturday.
3 Thoughts on USA 3, Mexico 0…
The U.S. has qualified for the 2015 Women's World Cup with a 3-0 win over Mexico.
Mexico playing like they'd love the final whistle to blow now and just get on with preparing for Sunday.
Carli Lloyd two-thirds on her way to a hat trick with the cool penalty. USWNT 2:0 MEX. US up dos a cero, WC berth awaits.
El Tri XI: Tajonar, Romero, Sierra, Mercado, Rangel, Samarzich, Duarte, Garza, Murillo, Robles, Garciamendez.

USWNT: Solo; Krieger, Rampone, Engen, Klingenberg; Lloyd, Holiday, Rapinoe; Press, Leroux, Heath.
Christie Rampone gets 300th cap. Surprised no Wambach or Sauerbrunn with WC berth on the line.
Slightly embarrassed that this is my 1st game at gorgeous PPL Park in Chester, Pa.
Who is Jill Ellis? I sat down with the new USWNT coach as the US aims to clinch a berth tonight in WWC15…
MLS referee José Carlos Rivero suspended by PRO after being charged with 2 felonies. Worked NY-CLB last week…
Using logic of FIFA "expert," Russia men's World Cup needs to be played on artificial turf, not grass…
Countless examples now that FIFA's definition of "independent" is very different from yours or mine.
Surprise: "Independent" artificial turf consultant hired by FIFA for WWC doesn't sound very independent at all…
I'd be unhappy too if I gave up a homer to Infante.
Best present for turning 40 is this Royals postseason run. Makes me remember interviewing Bret Saberhagen in the dugout as a 10-year-old.
I was 11 the last time Royals were in the playoffs. Apologies for acting like an 11-year-old here : )
Salvie!!!!! Even my dogs are getting scared now.
Royals lead. Wife says: "You need to quiet down."
Love how Tom Verducci always brings something to the table.
Not sure I can adequately explain how nervous I am during these Royals games.
Good stuff on one of my favorite players, Xabi Alonso, from one of my favorite writers, @honigstein…
Surprised how many pro-Royals hoots I got in NYC with my KC hat on today. (Only thing I knew about NY as a kid was I hated the Yankees.)
Official: USMNT-Colombia at Craven Cottage Nov 14. (Hilarious that Croatia FA had announced game vs US before contract was signed.)
Fantastic lightning comeback by Arsenal. Stuff like this is why Gunners always make the CL knockout rounds.
Ex-DC United Andy Najar just gave Anderlecht the lead against Arsenal. Wow. Terrific header.
Thinking of getting a No. 45 Liverpool shirt with the name "Scapegoat" on the back of it.
Portland Timbers out of CCL after 3-1 loss to Olimpia. Sizable bummer for MLS.
Forgot what it was like for Royals to lose. Long series, plenty of time.
RIP Ben Bradlee
Wasn't this WWC qualifying tournament held in Cancún last time? Rain at RFK Stadium not quite the same.
Martinique just scored its 1st goal of WWC qualifying after conceding 19. Happy to see them happy.
Body in DC, heart in KC right now.
Huge statement game from Bayern Munich here. Up 5-0 on the road against a very good Roma team 35 minutes in. Terrifying.
Man, City. Bad call on the penalty, but no excuse for letting CSKA back in the game.
Guardiola on going back to Roma (on loan for 6mths in 2002/03): "Nothing has changed. I'm still on the bench, Totti still on the pitch"

Meghan Klingenberg's strike for the US last night is one of the best goals you'll see this week anywhere in the world

Some good points in this column by @tsnmike on Klinsmann & USMNT…
