Sporting Director and Head Coach Gregg Berhalter arrived at the Crew nearly a month ago, and already he has placed a major imprint on the club's vision moving forward. Berhalter recently sat down with Abernathy Miller from Columbus Alive! to talk about how he is getting along in Columbus so far. 

MLS Cup 2013 is tomorrow in Kansas City, where Sporting KC will host Real Salt Lake in the League's first-ever small market Final. Ahead of the big game, MLS Commissioner Don Garber sat down with Sports Illustrated's Brian Straus for a Q&A that extended on Tuesday's State of the League address. Topics discussed include the small-market final, expansion and New York City FC.

Saturday's match will feature a budding rivalry in Sporting KC and Real Salt Lake. Recent meetings between the two teams have been physical, and all indications are that this one will be no exception. John Eligon from the New York Times  discusses the match-up and the history between these two rivals from opposing conferences.
