Seattle

Alex Roldan (yes, that's HIS brother) scored for Seattle U in a 2-0 win over West Virginia Friday, before giving up a last-minute goal to 2nd-ranked Akron in a 1-0 loss Sunday.

The University of Washington Men's team lost their season opener 2-1 to Utah Valley.

To win the Cascadia Cup, the Sounders now have to win both games against the Vancouver Whitecaps by at least four combined goals and for the Whitecaps to beat the Portland Timbers in Canada on the last day of the season.

MLS

Minnesota United had to fight off the NFL to get their successful MLS expansion bid, as explained by a recent New York Times article.

"Watching dumb comedies" is a great way to get over a dumb loss, and hey, did you know that Will Ferrell was in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me? Here's also him in an excavator for last week's LAFC groundbreaking ceremony. During that event, Ferrell claimed the team would go undefeated in its inaugural season.

Another batch of stadium renderings has been released for DC United's Buzzard Point project.

NWSL

After very successful expansions to both Houston and Orlando, the NWSL's next target may be (blessedly) west of the Mississippi, out California way. The team would likely be backed by that new expansion LAFC MLS club.

Once a Metro has some serious long-form on the adversity overcome by Sky Blue FC's Maya Hayes.

USNT

Jurgen Klinsmann released his US Men's qualifying roster, and Stars and Stripes FC has some thoughts.

World

Robbie Keane has retired from the Irish National Team, which just means we're going to see that mug of his more often.

Chivas spoiled Club America's 100th anniversary with a 3-0 thumping on their home turf.

When I'm watching goals like this one, I wish that offside wasn't a thing.
