The top honors this weekend went to the conference champions-- Portland and Columbus deserve a long sip of champagne and even a stogie if they're into it.

But eleven of the league's hottest players also deserve a victory lap. Yesterday evening, Major League Soccer announced its Best XI for 2015.

The Supporters' Shield-winning Red Bulls placed two on the Best XI, along with Western Conference runners-up FC Dallas and the Eastern Conference champs from Columbus.

For the record, Frank Lampard was not named to the side.

No time for delay-- hail to the victors:
