The prevailing theme of a wild weekend in MLS? The biggest stars came to shine.
Three of the league's most prolific scorers this season found the back of the net on Saturday, and one of them (Dwayne De Rosario) managed the trick twice. But even with goals this weekend, players like De Rosario and the Colorado Rapids' duo of Conor Casey and Omar Cummings still have some work to do to catch LA's Edson Buddle, who carries the lead down the stretch with 14 goals.
And New York's Juan Pablo Ángel - who trails behind Buddle with 12 goals this season - gets his chance in Buddle's own back yard next Friday, when the Red Bulls take on the Galaxy at the Home Depot Center.
But can anyone catch actually Buddle for the Budweiser Golden Boot? Vote now and let us know what you think!
