The San Jose Earthquakes have two red cards rescinded, DC United makes their moves, and the US Open Cup semi-finals are set.

Sportscenter on the Road will have an MLS Special Edition next Sunday and will be making it's first visit to an MLS match in Portland for the occasion.

San Jose Earthquakes managed a 2-1 victory over Toronto last weekend despite going down to nine men by the 53rd minute. Now, the MLS disciplinary has inexplicably reversed both of these reds.

Toronto FC has signed Canadian International Tosaint Rickets out of the Turkish professional league.

The Hudson River whining derby has officially commenced. NYCFC coach Patrick Vieira is upset that he's losing his players to a mid-season friendly (the MLS All-Star game).

On the other side of the river, Jesse Marsch's beef is with the very same players and their proclivities to falling down.

A newly rendered image of LAFC's upcoming stadium has been released. It seems that the stadium's defining feature will be a soft light image filter.

DC United was involved with two reported transfers yesterday. First, they have shipped MLS veteran Fabian Espindola to the Vancouver Whitecaps.

They have already seemingly replaced Espindola with another striker, Patrick Mullins from NYCFC.

US Open Cup

The US Open Cup Semifinals are now officially set. The first match of the quarter-finals was only resolved when the New England Revolution defeated the Philadelphia Union on penalties.

The match between FC Dallas and the Houston Dynamo just avoided extra time with a 91st minute Fabian Castillo goal.

Finally, the Chicago Fire eliminated the last standing non-MLS team with a 3-0 victory over Ft. Lauderdale.

USA

Someone apparently felt it was worth spending their money to fly a nearly unreadable "Promotion Relegation for US Soccer" banner over a Minnesota United match yesterday.

Nike has released their newest cleat just in time for the Rio OlympicsIt's woven yarn construction was designed pixel-by-pixel, just don't ask me what a yarn pixel is.

Chesterfield FC, a third division English team, has been forced to apologize after it was discovered that the winner of a raffle for their fans does not exist.

On the subject of the ongoing silly season, Four Four Two has a explanation of what exactly goes into a medical evaluation for a potential transfer.
