Best of 2012
Getty Images's Best of 2012 series begins Monday

Get ready for the rewind.

Beginning on Monday, Dec. 17, we’ll kick off our annual Best of the Year series on, and it’s bigger and better than ever for 2012.

We asked 20 of our writers, editors, videographers and stats gurus to weigh in on 17 different categories such as the biggest controversy, the best game and the worst blunder we saw this year in Major League Soccer. We’ll also offer up the best quotes of the year, a gallery of the best photos and the 12 biggest stories in 2012.

And did we mention the Moment of the Year? We’ll let the fans decide that one beginning on Monday, but we also tracked down some of the biggest names in MLS this year to give us the one moment they’ll never forget from 2012.

Check out the Best of 2012 schedule here, find out who voted and look back at the series from years past.
