Like Brian Bliss and Duncan Oughton, Crew goalkeeper William Hesmer weighed in on his All-Time MLS Best XI. Hesmer deviated from Bliss and Oughton's 3-5-2 formation to go with a 4-1-4-1 look. The veteran 'keeper chose a very American-laden lineup with the exception of Canadian Dwayne De Rosario and former Crew teammate Guillermo Barros Schelotto, check it out:

As part of MLS Supporters Week, former MLSers and Crew front office personnel Brian Bliss and Duncan Oughton took the time out of their Monday to choose their All-Time MLS Best XIs. Bliss took the time to list all the candidates he felt were qualified at each position and narrowed the list down one by one. Oughton went the extra mile and included a bench to his list.

Check it out:

With FC Dallas pressuring for a late equalizer, Crew goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum showed off his foot skills, juking Dallas midfielder Andrew Jacobsen. Here's what the Hammer had to say after the match about his shake-and-bake:

"Honestly, I know everyone was a little bit nervous, but I think all the guys will back me up on this: I probably have one of the better touches on the team. It shows in 5v2 every day and I'm confident. I didn't get the look I wanted. I was trying to play Gehrig. I was trying to tell Gehrig to show in the middle because there was space and he didn't. By the time I had to make a decision, the guy was on me, so I just juked him. I promise that's the last time that will happen--"

"Yeah… Yeah, it will be," interjected Danny O' Rourke.

"...Unless it happens again," Gruenebaum finished.

I think it's safe to say that despite Gruenebaum's prowess with the ball at his feet, Robert Warzycha won't be putting him at forward any time soon.

Earlier this week, current and former Crew players and staff ruled that Eddie Gaven has a better beard than former Crew midfielder Adam Moffat in Steve Sirk's The Massive Court.

Now Eddie will challege Portland's Timber Joey in a facial hair faceoff, but this time the fans will have their say. So we ask, "Who has the better beard: Eddie Gaven or Timber Joey?"
