In this week's Anatomy of a Goal, MLS Digital editor-in-chief Greg Lalas takes a deeper look at Lenhart's goal against the Colorado Rapids, including the build-up by fellow bash brother Alan Gordon. 

Should we start calling Lenny The Roadrunner? Sure looks like it.

We visited the new stadium construction site with Quakes prez Dave Kaval the other day, and it turns out there is a lot more excavating to be done than we originally thought. Just check out the photos below. 

The old FMC building foundation wall: 

One of three concrete bunkers found on the site. It wasn't an easy task for the construction crew to rip these suckers out. 

 

The trouble with digging below the water line. You run into water. A lot of it. 

Kaval inspecting the ground water: 

Get a first hand look at these giant concrete pillars (at least 100 of them) found on site. Check out Kaval's vine

These giant metal objects weren't easy to pull out of the ground either:

One thing is certain - we have some great Quakes dads out there. 

We know it was a hard choice, but Wondo has chosen his winner to his Father's Day contest. Congrats to Raymund Arcibal! Take a look at all of the entries below. And don't worry, you still have a chance to take Dad to #CaliClasico (TICKETS).

What do you get when a heated rivalry meets California's biggest fireworks show? The perfect Father's Day gift.

And Chris Wondolowski has the goods. He's giving away two tickets to the sporting event of the summer - Quakes vs. Galaxy on June 29th at Stanford Stadium (TICKETS).

 

Tweet him why your dad deserves to go to #CaliClasico (don't forget the hashtag!). He'll announce the winner tomorrow morning. 

Happy Father's Day to all of our Quakes Dads!

Know an MLS President who uses Vine more than @QuakesPrez? Didn't think so. Dave Kaval visited the new stadium site today and Vine'd his way through the new construction. 

Take a look. Follow his Tumblr here
