Change is coming. With our 40th Anniversary and New Logo Unveil right around the corner on Jan. 30, we have a lot to look forward to in 2014. 

Quakes prez Dave Kaval sat down with Sports Illustrated's Brian Straus for an exclusive interview on our new stadium progress and the reunification of the Earthquakes.

Was there ever any doubt? From his Vines of new stadium construction updates to a very active Twitter account, Dave Kaval was already in the running for most tech-savvy Prez in the business. 

Add Google Glass to the mix, and he brings his game to whole new level. 

His coverage of the 2014 #SuperDraft gave fans an all-access pass with videos and photos from the Earthquakes draft table.

There's a lot more to come from our President this season, make sure you're following along every step of the way (Twitter - @QuakesPrez, Vine - Dave Kaval). 

Here are a few highlights from his day. Check out his Twitter account for the full run-down:

All the speculation can begin now that the 2014 FIFA World Cup Draw is set.

Media is saying that the USMNT drew the Group of Death with Germany, Portugal and Ghana, while Honduras seemingly has the easiest task ahead with France, Switzerland and Ecuador. 

We want your opinion though. Vote now:

Sources say it may be an ugly one for the United States Men's National Team considering their pot placement, but that doesn't stop us from counting down to one of the biggest events in the sport this year: the 2014 FIFA World Cup draw. 

Who will be in the Group of Death? Do Klinsmann's guys stand a chance to make it out of group play? We'll only know that answer come June of next year, but all the speculation can begin tomorrow at 8 a.m. PT. 

Your boss won't care if you're a few minutes late to work tomorrow morning. Set your alarms, grab your breakfast and tune in to the big event beginning at 8 a.m. PT on ESPN 2/ Univision. Not by a TV? Follow the conversation on Twitter using #atDraw

Who knew Sam Cronin and Ty Harden were master chefs? 

The duo along with some members of the Earthquakes' front office made lunch for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House at Stanford on Wednesday.

Okay - so maybe they should stick to their day jobs, but we have to give it to them: they do dish out some mean quesadillas and BBQ chicken sandwiches.

Thankgiving is tomorrow, and there is nothing we are more thankful for than you. 

We decided to take the Earthquakes twist on Turkey Day this year and reenact the classic Norman Rockwell painting. 

We need your help though. Caption our turkey dinner in comments below with your own witty responses. We'll choose our favorite to receive seven autographed player cards. 

So, get your creative juices going before you sink into that Turkey coma. We can't wait to see what you come up with. I mean, you do have Muma's stink-face to work with...  

We'll announce the winner on Tuesday, December 3. Happy Quakesgiving! 

UPDATE: 

Congratulations to our winner Carlos Ferreira! His caption and play on words "It's not a fowl, it's a turkey " had us cracking up. Thanks to all who participated in our Thanksgiving Caption Contest. We sure do have some creative fans!
