Why no CONCACAF Champions League?


I'm relatively new to the club soccer world.  Always followed the International game, rooting hard for the U.S. but this is the first year that I've followed the club level and obviously love it.  So I'm thinking about the UEFA Champions League going on and I'm thinking how cool it would be to have MLS teams in something similar, then I go and look and find out that there is a CONCACAF Champions League, and the only MLS team left, Columbus Crew play Mexican team, Toluca tonight.

I scour ESPN for some sort of news or preview or talk of the game and don't find a thing.  The MLS front page doesn't have a word of it.  I figure I might see something posted here but still no.  So then my question becomes why not?  Does no one really care about this tournament because we are not in Europe?

Just hoping to get some discussion going and become informed why there isn't more media discussion about this?

I know one thing, I would be a lot more interested in MLS if I was informed about this tournament going on and I think a lot of other Americans would too.  I'm glad I know about it now and it will definitely add to the enjoyment of watching the MLS season.
