Davis (my No. 2) wins MLS player honor

mlsballHouston's Brad Davis has won the MLS player-of-the-week award.

Davis had two assists and then scored the game-winner in Houston's 3-2 win over Real Salt Lake over the weekend. Impressive as that is, he got only the second of the two votes I cast in this week's balloting.

My No. 1 vote went to Chivas keeper Zach Thornton, who I thought was jaw-dropping in shutting out the Sounders on Saturday. Might have been the best keeper performance I've seen this season.
