the official thread of the MLS Cup 2006

The game will be broadcast live on ABC at 3:30 p.m. ET/2:30 p.m CT.

Probably not many people watching but i thought id start a thread anyway since its the final and should be a good one between Houston Dynamo and the New England Revolution.

Go Dynamo!

0-0 at the half with Houston having most of the play and certainly looks like a home game for them.

And on a related note the MLS has adopted the Beckham rule to attract superstar players:

The "Beckham Rule" will give MLS teams the authority to acquire players outside the $2 million-per-team salary cap, which will be "significantly" increased to accommodate the new policy

I like the rule and hope it works but I think that they will only attract fading, past their prime "stars" to MLS.

That was a great comeback goal to push it to PKs.

I'm happy to see former Rochester Rhino Pat Onstadt make the championship save. I'm just as happy to see a dook graduate lose it for New England.
