Greg Howes won his third MVP award Friday.

From today's Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

Greg Howes won his third most valuable player award Friday, putting him in elite company in the Major Indoor Soccer League. But the 31-year-old Milwaukee Wave forward couldn't help casting an envious glance toward the three members of the Baltimore Blast sitting at an adjacent table. Blast goalkeeper Sagu, defender P.J. Wakefield and midfielder Denison Cabral will be playing against Monterrey La Raza in the MISL final tonight at the U.S. Cellular Arena, while Howes will be only a spectator.

"It is bittersweet," Howes said of winning his third MVP award in five years, after also winning in 2004 and 2005. "I'm sure when I go to the game (tonight), it's going to be tough watching it. But I'll go there and support the league."

Baltimore ousted the Wave, 14-13, in Game 2 of the semifinals Sunday, marking the fourth consecutive time the Blast has beaten Milwaukee in a post-season series.
