It's Monday and the weekend games are over. Landon Donovan had a goal and two assists and was named MLS Player of the Week. Several power rankings have been updated and the gaze has already started to fixate on the next week's games.
Only problem is, there is a game tonight. RSL-Colorado are playing a game tonight, however uninspiring it may be to some outside of the region or the Western Conference. Still, a game is a game and it most certainly counts. What if someone has a hat trick? Shouldn't that give someone Player of the Week honors? What if one team wins 5-0? Wouldn't that have an affect on the power rankings for one or both teams.
I'm holding off my own power rankings until after this game.
