Best Thanksgiving Ever?

It's got to be the best one in MLS history, right? There's a Conference Championship second leg on Saturday and another on Sunday to cap off the long holiday weekend and we get you set for both of them starting with the Seattle Sounders vs. LA Galaxy saga in the West which comes to a close on Sunday night. According to Mr. Sounder, Zach Scott, it's the biggest match in club history.

And while the Western series still rests on a knife's edge, the Eastern Conference Championship is decidedly tilted toward the New England Revolution, who are at home with two away goals to defend vs. New York Red Bulls. Revs right back Andrew Farrell feels like this is his team's big chance to finally get their due on the national stage.

Also, what Landon Donovan will we witness in what may be his last game ever? Who should the Red Bulls start in place of Bradley Wright-Phillips: Saer Sene or Tim Cahill? And is Austin the new Columbus? Lastly, if you listen to ExtraTime Radio in your car, one listener shares a cautionary tale in the mailbag.

ExtraTime Radio Book Club:

If you thought you knew everything there was to know about the 2014 World Cup, think again. Author James Montague dug up the stories you likely never heard about in the lead-up to Brazil 2014 in "Thirty-One Nil." We spoke to Montague about his adventures around the world and if you haven't yet ordered the book, you'll likely be tempted to after listening to our special Book Club edition.

Meanwhile, get started on the book club's next selection: The Numbers Game by Chris Anderson and David Sally (see left).
