MLS Cup final set — Dallas and Colorado face off for the title

playoff_bracket_cup.jpgSo who had Dallas and Colorado in the MLS Cup final at the start of the playoffs? Not me. But that’s the beauty of postseason sometimes.

Neither team has ever won a league championship, so on Sunday we’ll see a first-time winner hoisting the MLS Cup trophy on Toronto’s BMO Field. That will be the fourth first-timer winner in the last five years. And five different champions in the last six.

Some are bemoaning the match-up, but I like it. Dallas’ David Ferreira and Kevin Hartman have been superstars all season. Colorado has a handful of great players as well, starting with Omar Cummings. Plus, like I’ve heard some people mention on Twitter tonight, both markets could use the boost to gain more MLS interest.

Back to Sunday’s game, Schellas Hyndman‘s side destroyed L.A. with a 3-0 romp at the Home Depot Center. Ferreira, George John (a Shoreline product who played midfielder at UW a couple years ago) and Marvin Chavez had the goals and Hartman had six huge saves in the dominating decision.

What did you think of the game? Nice to see the Galaxy go down? How about the MLS Cup matchup?
