Another CONCACAF Champions League campaign, another bust for MLS. The league's two remaining hopes bowed out in the tournament quarterfinals Wednesday night, when Seattle Sounders fell at Club America and Real Salt Lake finished with a home draw against Tigres.
After playing well in the first leg at home, Seattle fell apart in Mexico City with a 3-1 loss to America. RSL improved upon its first-leg performance, but the draw wasn't enough to overcome a 2-0 hole against Tigres.
Three days after Man City defeated Liverpool on penalties in the League Cup final, the reds picked up a lopsided Premier League win at Anfield. Despite its struggles this season, Liverpool have picked up two league wins over City by a combined 7-1.
Meanwhile, Spurs dropped three critical points on the road at West Ham. The result could prove to be costly in the title race against Leicester City.
And Arsenal, sitting third, somehow lost to lowly Swansea City. All in all, it was a great day for idle Leicester.
The USMNT is up to No. 33, trailing only Mexico (No. 22) in CONCACAF. Of course, FIFA rankings are meaningless, so don't put too much stock into this.
What's happening in The A?
The Falcons cut their veteran receive on Wednesday, ending 11-year run for White in Atlanta.
The Hawks are trying to bolster their depth down the stretch. Martin has other suitors, but he could help Atlanta's situation at shooting guard.
The Braves are playing actual spring training baseball games. Ain't life grand?
