MLS:

Following their successful second leg versus FC Dallas, the Sounders will face the Colorado Rapids for the Western Conference Championship.

Colorado has been in solid form throughout the season, but their watershed moment came from the addition of Tim Howard, at least according to manager Pablo Mastoreni. Howard was the centerpiece to Colorado's optimal playing style, which in tandem with Jermaine Jone's resurgence, makes them a formidable opponent for Seattle.

Colorado knocked out the Los Angeles Galaxy on their road to the Western Conference Final, and with it, potentially, Steven Gerrard's career.

On the other side of the bracket, the Eastern Conference will be a Canadian affair, with the Montreal Impact and Toronto FC eliminating the state of New York from playoff contention.

United States:

Fresh off the MLS semifinal playoff legs, Jurgen has locked in his roster for the upcoming World Cup Qualifier vs. Mexico, with ten MLS players (including Jordan Morris, barring complications from his injury) among them.

The World:

Thanks to Harry Kane's incredible efforts to continually crush Gunners dreams, Liverpool are alone at the top of the Premier League table after blowing past Watford. With this result comes the inevitable title speculation, something that skipper Jurgen Klopp is hoping to calm before it fully picks up steam.

Cristiano Ronaldo looks to round out his career in the Bernebeau, signing a five year extension with Real Madrid that puts him at $73m per season.

A recent study revealed that there is a scientific method to officials' quality control of play on the field.
