Abracadabra! What a magical Week 1.

If a genie had granted someone the perfect opening week to MLS, the results could hardly have been different from everything that happened in the past seven days.

Twenty-seven goals in 10 games. Sparkling debuts from two of the league’s new designated players. Terrific stadium atmospheres, even in cities where the weather refused to cooperate.

There was also a rising star who won a game with his first career goal, a wide-open, six-goal game in the new Canada derby, and a powerful display from the defending champs.
