2011 MLS Power Rankings: Week 7

Dearly beloved of Bleacher Report, we are gathered here today to celebrate the life of Real Salt Lake at the top of the MLS Power Rankings.

It was a fine run, marked by success and consistency that ended too soon, and in too cruel a fashion.

Such is the game of association football, where being in form does not necessarily mean a team will stay on top of any ranking if one below has a little extra intangible to work with.

We are also gathered here to celebrate a new face at the top of the power rankings in the New York Energy Drinks-er, the New York Pink Cows-er, the New York Red Bulls.

By the way, is it New York Red Bulls or Red Bull New York? Blast it; that's akin to asking whether it's Kraft Macaroni and Cheese or Kraft Cheese and Macaroni. (Actually, it's Kraft Dinner, but it only applies if you're Canadian.)

The spiel is ended, go in peace...to this week's Power Rankings.

Cue the choir from Westminster Abbey.
