In case you haven't heard Blas Perez is coming off a pretty good week. Not only did the Panamanian forward score twice in the Copa Centroamericana while on international duty, but he also bagged a brace for FC Dallas in a 2-1 win over Vancouver Whitecaps FC on Saturday to earn an MLS Player of the Week award.

Super Raton has a chance to win another award based on his stellar week as his first goal against Vancouver is nominated for AT&T MLS Goal of the Week. You can watch the video above to check out the "competition" if you want, but you might as well save yourself the time and just vote for Blas now.

Voting runs until 11:59 pm PT on Thursdays. For complete coverage of the AT&T MLS Goal of the Week — including an archive of all of this season's nominees and winners — click here.

Welcome to the 2014 Budweiser Draught Draft! Here's how it works: we have eight Tier 1 Pub Partners and eight road matches selected for our 2014 Party at the Pubs watch party series presented by Budweiser.

Rather than randomly assign matches to our Pub Partners, we're going to let them choose their respective matches. But how do we decide who gets the first pick? Easy, we don't; that's where you come in!

Just cast your vote for your favorite Pub Partner in the poll to the right. When voting ends on Thursday (5pm CT), the pub with the most votes gets to make the first pick in the 2014 Budweiser Draught Draft. The pub with the second most votes gets the second pick, and so on and so forth.

So pick your pub and let us know who you think should get the top spot in our 2014 Party at the Pubs watch party series presented by Budweiser!

The field is set for the hexagonal round in CONCACAF World Cup qualifying. Beginning in 2013 the United States will battle Costa Rica, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico and Panama for the right to be one of three teams to advance to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Now it's your time to vote - which three teams do you think will advance?

The unknown voters behind the MLS Power Rankings kept FC Dallas to No. 9 in the Week 29 rankings. Here's what the voters had to say:
 
Four games left, and they'll need to win at least three of those to get into the postseason. It starts off pretty rough, though, with a trip to Buck Shaw Stadium – where the Quakes haven't lost since summer of 2011. No Jair Benítez PKs this time, please.

The mysterious voters behind the MLS Power Rankings jumped FC Dallas to No. 9 in the Week 28 rankings, up from No. 13 last week. FCD's dramatic 1-0 win over Vancouver at home on Saturday has FCD at its highest slot in the rankings since Week Three this season. Here's what the voters had to say:
 
Ninety-five minutes into Saturday's game, it looked like FCD's season was pretty much over. Ninety-six minutes in, we had one of the signature moments of the year. They still need some help to catch Vancouver, but nothing can be ruled out at this point.

The unknown voters behind the MLS Power Rankings kept FC Dallas at No. 13 in the Week 26 rankings after a 1-1 draw to Seattle at home on Sunday. Here's what the voters had to say:
 
A win over the Sounders sure would have been nice, but a draw at least keeps them in the hunt. No question that they'll have to get the full three points against Vancouver when the 'Caps come to town on Sept. 15, the next game for both teams. Anything less than a win, and the Western Conference playoff race is over.

The mysterious voters behind the MLS Power Rankings dropped FC Dallas three spots this week to No. 13 in the Week 25 rankings after a 2-0 loss on the road to the LA Galaxy. Here's what the voters had to say:
 
Brutal loss to LA may very well have put the postseason out of reach. FCD have six games left and probably need to win at least four of them to have a realistic hope at making the playoffs. Won't be easy, especially with red-hot Seattle coming to town this weekend. But at least they have all their pieces back and healthy for the first time ever.

FC Dallas isn't the first, nor will it be the last, soccer team to wear a striped or hooped jersey. But we do take notice when new kits roll out with the horizontal stripes. 

Back in April, we weren't the only ones to notice the similarities between the new U.S. Men's National Team jerseys and FCD's. 

SMU caught our attention on Wednesday when they unveiled their new red and blue hooped jerseys on Facebook. Red & blue are, of course, FCD's colors and SMU's as well.

So which look do you like the best? FCD? USMNT? SMU?

The mysterious voters behind the MLS Power Rankings vaulted FC Dallas up four spots this week to No. 13 after its 3-2 win vs Colorado in the Week 23 rankings. Here's what the voters had to say:

David Ferreira finally looks fit, Brek Shea is saying all the right things and Fabián Castillo is playing like a DP. It may be just a bit too late to make a playoff push – 10 points out with nine games left is tough – but stranger things have happened, certainly.

The mysterious panel of voters who determine the MLS Power Rankings finally came to their senses this week. After having FCD ranked No. 11 during the preseason, the club jumped six spots (largest move of the week) to No. 5 in the Week One rankings. Here's what they had to say:

70 minutes of comprehensive dominance followed by 20 minutes of holding on for dear life. That’s probably not the way that Schellas Hyndman drew it up, but it was good enough for three points against New York. They’ll need to be more clinical to stay with the West's heavies, though.
