Isn't it great how Mondays seem so much sweeter after a win? The New England Revolution are sixth in the East (how bad is that, by the way, that three points bumps us that high in this conference?), the Portland Timbers are vanquished, Shalrie Joseph is the minutes leader, and Matt Reis has made 1000 saves. All is right with the world. For now. Of course, that doesn't mean there's a whole lot of relevant news to report.

Without further ado, the Rounds.
