- Jermaine Jones=winner: "Throughout history, alchemists engaged in a long search for the philosopher's stone, a substance that could turn base metals such as lead into gold. The quest ultimately proved fruitless, but in Major League Soccer circles, an embodiment of the philosopher's stone has been discovered at last. If you want to turn a team into a contender, simply add Jermaine Jones. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, since the end of the shootout era at the end of the 1999 campaign, Jones has the highest regular season winning percentage (.719) of any MLS player with more than 30 appearances."
- Plan Z: "At the end of the day I want to go to the Olympics, everyone wants to go, we want to be a part of it, being able to win a gold medal is one of the most incredible feelings in the world, so it's our 'Plan Z,' essentially."
