That's good that New England is going to be in the CONCACAF Champions Cup, too. Was that because of the Supporter's Shield victory? If so, it shows that the federation is treating that like a league win.

But San Jose won the Supporter's Shield. I think it's the Eastern Conference and Western Conference playoff champions.

Well that's embarassing. I don't know why I thought New England won it. Maybe because they were the best team in the league?

At any rate, they deserve to be in a continental competition.

And what's with MLS teams always getting drawn against Costa Rican teams in the CCC?

Jonathan - how could you forget the Quakes were "The League Champions" and the best team in the regular Season :) ?
