There was plenty to see in Major League Soccer's Week 20, headlined by action on and off the field.
Vancouver Whitecaps and United States men's national team fan favorite Jay DeMerit called time on his career early in the week, announcing his retirement. DeMerit's rise from obscurity and English pub league games to the Premier League and eventually a starting spot for the USMNT in the World Cup was chronicled in the documentary Rise & Shine: The Jay DeMerit Story.
On the field, Sporting KC kept things rolling, while the New England Revolution and the Montreal Impact continued their respective slides.
There were also a number of beautiful goals, highlighted by Gaby Torres', Nick LaBrocca's, Federico Higuain's and Maxi Urruti's tallies.
