This video has been making the internet rounds the past couple of days. As various web reports mention, former Russian international defender Vadim Evseev retired as a professional from the Belarus league in December. And in a touching moment, in his testimonial match earlier this month, he was replaced by five-year-old Khrisan Dzeus. I've found multiple stories that say Khristan is Vadim's son, and others that say he's the son of a CEO of a children's charity organization, and that Vadim wanted to recognize the CEO's efforts by showcasing Vadim.

In either case, watch how both teams helped the little fella become the star of the game...

Drew Moor has always shared how proud he is to be from Dallas, and to have played for FC Dallas - the team he followed since he was a kid. And the fans of FC Dallas have always appreciated Drew's play and how he's treated and respected them...and how he fought for the jersey during his time there.

"A lot of friends who supported me when I played for Dallas and continue to support me even when I play with the Rapids, so it's a special place," he said after he captained the Rapids to a 2-0 win over Dallas on Sunday. "I played in over a hundred games here for FC Dallas and it will always be a special place for me. A big part of my heart stays here. It makes it that much sweeter to finally get three points here."

Last year, one of Drew's former Dallas teammates and good friend, Bobby Rhine, shockingly passed away at a young age. Saddened by the news, Drew wrote his feeling down and shared them on the site (CLICK HERE).

Bobby was also adored by the hometown faithful. On Sunday, in his return to Dallas, Drew went to greet members of FCD's supporters group, The Inferno, and took a moment to honor his fallen friend at the sign the fans hang his honor:

Early in Friday's training session, assistant coach Paul Caffrey had the guys doing ladder exercises as part of warmups. As usual, they had a competive element to them, this time each row racing the others. All was going well until one guy gets caught in the ladder...and that was it was for warm ups.
