If you spend enough time around Red Bull Arena, you might notice a guy decked out in Red Bulls gear buzzing around, shaking hands and sharing laughs with a variety of faces, young and old
Fernando Ruiz is that guy.
The video above courtesy of New York profiles Ruiz, who made the decision to trade NJ Transit for the training pitch and hasn't looked back since.
Tell us in the comments, and feel free to volunteer some nickname suggestions, too.
Ever wondered what a match is like at Stade Saputo? The video above might give you a decent idea. Next level quality.
Neutral MLS fan alert: Viewing may spark newfound affinity for Montreal Impact.
Consider yourself warned, amusez-vous!
Michael Bradley is just in the groove right now.
Living the life with his family in Rome, jamming to Springsteen, doing yoga and just killing it in general whenever he steps on the pitch for club and country.
We gotta hand it to Juan Agudelo. Kid knows how to make an entrance.
In his first career regular-season start as a professional, at the tender age of 18, he notched a game-winning strike for New York Red Bulls.
24 minutes into his USMNT debut, he scored the goal to beat South Africa.
And now, in just his second-ever effort as a Vine user, Agudelo provides us this gem from the Chivas USA training room (do yourself a favor and turn on the audio):

As you can see, loads of promise in this young man's Vine game. We'll look forward to seeing how he develops.
Sneaky big weekend coming up.
As part of the occasion, four market-specific posters have been released for the two matches that will air on NBC Sports Network.
They're pretty cool.
Above you'll find the art pertaining to LA's visit to FC Dallas Stadium on Saturday. Not a ton of rest for the weary.
Of course on Sunday, we get another good one.
Portland-San Jose, 10:30pm ET:
Which one do you like best? I could really do with some brisket right now, so I'm gonna go with the FC Dallas BBQ sauce. Leave your choice in the comments.
Ah, college. Miss you.
Best friends all around, not a care in the world, maybe an adult beverage if you're of legal age and into that sort of thing. Not gonna lie, we get a little jealous every year of all the kids at College Cup.
And if you live in the D.C. area, you're at least a little jealous of all the students who'll flock to RFK on Saturday when their beloved United host the New York Red Bulls.
Cool sidenote about this one, the George Washington University radio station will be cranking out an English radio broadcast. Good to see the Colonials stepping up to the plate.
Huge night at Buck Shaw on Saturday.
It was all fun and games until they stepped up to the spot. As you'll see below, Q gets a little unlucky. And by "a little" we mean very, very unlucky:
Somewhat unlucky for Rockhold too, as Q's "save" allowed Cormier to claim the win, prompting the following exchange after the contest:
