The Portland Timbers are your 2015 MLS Cup champions. Despite the unimaginable, bad misses by the refs and just about everything in-between. It was a great capper to the 20th season of MLS.
As the Timbers Army would sing, ‘There’s a party in Portland! No one’s sleeping tonight!’
Gus Being Gus and Wishing He Was Everywhere
This is why you watch a game Gus Johnson is doing.

The End Of The Road
Calgary Stampeders running back Jon Cornish called it a career. The BC native is walking away from the game at the age of 31 with three rushing titles, two Grey Cup titles, one Most Outstanding Player award and the Lou Marsh Award. The Lou Marsh Award is given to Canada’s top athlete (male or female). Cornish was the first CFL player to win the award since 1969.
The best part about Cornish, when he won the Lou Marsh award, he did a media conference call while on break from his other job, as a bank teller. MMQB’s Emily Kaplan wrote a great article a few years ago about how a lot of CFL players have second jobs.
