MLS Playoffs: New England defeats New York Red Bulls, awaits winner of LA Galaxy-Seattle Sounders in MLS Cup

If the romantics out there (and MLS suits dreaming of relatively big ratings) wanted a Landon Donovan V. Thierry Henry MLS Cup, the revitalized New England Revolution and their collection of American stars that reflect a nation of immigrants begged to differ Saturday knocking off the highly paid stars from the Big Apple and awaiting the winner of Sunday’s Galaxy-Sounders Western Conference final.

It was apt that $3.6 million Aussie Tim Cahill, among the most highly paid MLS imports, should miss a sitter that had Henry shaking his head on the wing while German-American Jermaine Jones, Vietnamese-American Lee Nguyen (supposedly now on the radar of EPL clubs) and African-American Charlie Davies, five years removed from that crash that almost killed him and wrecked his national team career, all did exactly what they needed to do to reach MLS Cup.

Now, will the Galaxy join them?
