Dax McCarty is the Man and Brian Lewis Just Proved It

Here he is.

Every so often, someone has to reminded us that we root for a team that has won precisely zero relevant titles in its 16 years of existence.

This time around, it was the New York Post's Brian Lewis, who got a hold of Dax McCarty for his "professional sports team attempting to do what professional sports teams are supposed to do" story this morning. And McCarty didn't disappoint.

"We don't want to just win the Supporters' Shield, or the East; but we want to win MLS Cup as well,'' said midfielder Dax McCarty. "I've only been here a year-and-a-half, but I know these fans have stuck by us for 16, 17, 18 years without any trophies, and we're getting kind of sick of it.

"Some teams like to use the fact we haven't won any trophies for marketing and all that fun stuff, so it's a little bit frustrating. You want to change that, and you want to win for the fans."

And...

"Our mindset is the Supporters Shield, and I don't see why it wouldn't be that. That's my mindset as an individual, and I'm pretty sure that's the team's mindset,'' said McCarty. "Training this week and after our time off has probably been the best week of training I've ever been involved with, with this team especially.

"Guys are fit, guys are getting healthy and the competition for places is the highest I've ever seen on any team I've been involved in. There are two, sometimes three deep at every position, and all the guys have a certain level of experience you don't find in many other teams."

So there you have it.
