Amado Guevara is my favorite soccer player in the USA. He is the star striker for my MetroStars and is a handsome, aggressive, passionate player. He is also the captain of the Honduran National Team.
Although the MetroStars was knocked-out of the playoffs, it was an exciting season for the Metros, and Guevara was the star the shone the brightest!
Thank you, Amado! Congratulations.
MetroStars midfielder Guevara named Major League Soccer's MVP

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- MetroStars midfielder Amado Guevara was chosen Major League Soccer's most valuable player on Thursday.
Guevara, who helped his team to a second straight playoff appearance, led the MetroStars in assists (10) and points (30), while tying for the team lead in goals (10) during his second season in the league.
He also tied New England Revolution forward Pat Noonan for the league's scoring championship.
Guevara was presented with the Golden Ball award during a presentation at ESPNZone in Anaheim. He won over goalkeeper Joe Cannon of the Colorado Rapids and striker Jaime Moreno of D.C. United.
Guevara missed six games during the season, partly because of a red card suspension and his commitment to the Honduran national team's World Cup qualifying matches.

D.C. United Crowned MLS Champs
First of all, what have D.C. united? The history of the team name "United" is rooted in events where multiple teams in a city or town merge to create a new club. MLS is nine years old, the District of Columbia does not have a team by the merger of existing teams. They are simply copying Manchester United, and that is beyond dull.
DC United employ Jaime Moreno, who when fat and useless was signed to my MetroStars for a season and did nothing but limp around the field and complain the entire term of his contract. He was shipped back to D.C. and he became their Player of the Year candidate. He is not worthy of any more ink than this: Jaime Moreno, you are worthless and should be forced to reimburse every Metros season-ticket holder at least half of their money for the 2002-2003 season, you piece of shite!
Still, D.C. totally outplayed Kansas City in the MLS Cup final, even when their side was reduced to ten men because of a deliberate handball in the box. They were unbeatable yesterday.
They won handily, and they deserve to have captured the MLS Cup in the one-game play-off.
Hats off, and congratulations D.C.
