The Good, The Bad, The Coyote Ugly

MLS's weekend in review.....

THE GOOD

*A hat trick for Luciano Emilio, a hat trick for Edson Buddle, two goals for Rohan "Best Day of My Life So Far" Ricketts, two goals for Alejandro Moreno.
*Toronto remains unbeaten at home (5-0-2).
*Nearly 40,000 in Oakland for the visit by David Beckham and the Galaxy.
*The return of Jonathan Bornstein from a knee injury.
*Dallas has a new coach.
*DCU's supporters.
*Dallas improving to 16-1-4 when Kenny Cooper scores.
*New England's six-game unbeaten streak (5-0-1), DCU's four-game run (3-0-1) and RSL's three-game resurgence (2-0-1), capped by a 1-0 victory at Chivas USA, its first road success of the year.

THE BAD

*Chicago's first loss on the road to extend its winless streak at Dallas to 11 (0-10-1).
*Down the road for the Galaxy: road trip to DCU, home visit from the Revs five days later.
*San Jose being shut out for the seventh time and now facing four consecutive road matches. "Hopefully, come July 15 [when the transfer window opens], there are some new players to add to our team and that will give us a bit more consistency," Frank Yallop said.
*Colorado's league-worst two goals in the first half all year, but league-best 17 in the second half (including 14 in the final 30 minutes).

THE COYOTE UGLY

*The Red Bulls' backline.
*Game-time temperature at Dallas: 101.
*San Jose's goal total this year (nine) -- the same as MLS individual leader Landon Donovan.
*Cuauhtemoc Blanco: "It was bad refereeing. I've always said they are repetitive fouls, and I think there should be more yellow cards."

What'd I miss?
