playoffs? you wanna talk about playoffs?

It seems like forever since the last time I made an MLS post here! So long, in fact, that the regular season is over now!


The Columbus Crew won the Supporters Shield for the second season in a row for ending the regular season with the most points.


Needless to say, Robbie and Steven were very excited about it.

The 8 best teams in the league are now in the playoffs for the MLS Cup, which start tonight! The top two teams from each conference, along with the next four best teams from any conference, compete first in a two-legged aggregate conference semifinal, then a one-off conference final. The winners of each conference final compete in the MLS Cup final, which this year will take place at Qwest Stadium in Seattle. If you want to know anything more detailed, MLS has put together a 188-page PDF complete with info on all the teams, the entire history of the playoffs and the MLS Cup, season recaps, everything.

All right, so the conference semifinal schedule:

Western Conference
  • Houston @ Seattle, tonight, 10 PM EST, ESPN2/HD; Seattle @ Houston, Sunday, November 8th, 3 PM EST, Telefutura, Direct Kick/Match Center

  • LA @ Chivas, Sunday, November 1st, ESPN2/HD; Chivas @ LA, Sunday, November 8th, 7:30 PM EST, ESPN2/HD


Eastern Conference
  • Columbus @ RSL, Saturday, 7:30 PM EST, Direct Kick/Match Center; RSL @ Columbus, Thursday, November 5th, 8 PM EST, ESPN2/HD

  • Chicago @ New England, Sunday, 2 PM EST, FSC; New England @ Chicago, Saturday, November 7th, 8:30 PM EST, FSC


In the words of Robbie Rogers, Emilio Renteria, and Steven Lenhart...
