RSL have resorted to praying, begging for a win.
I don't know about you but with the wealth of hot, steamy MLS action on TV over the past few days I had to take yesterday off. I was starting to get bed sores from being on the couch, and bed pans are just sooooo unsexy so I decided it would be best to get off my ass and leave the house on Sunday.
But after my yard time yesterday I'll be back in full effect tonight for the lovers spat between the two mile-high clubs. RSL v. Rapids has gotten pretty interesting in a short period of time, what with Checketts & Mastroeni trying to turn the hate-o-meter up to 11 last season. Should be good just for the fact that I can watch one half of the game before Heroes and the other afterward (there's never anything on TV on Monday's, not even Chappelle's Show reruns…and that shit is on like, all the time).
In case you need to relive any of the magic from this weekend (EJ spilling red wine all over Toronto's gown at her coming out party for example) you need to check out the new Quick Kicks feature on MLSnet. Not only does it have all of the highlights from this weekends games going back to late last season, but each game is broken down so that you can click on & search individual moments throughout the game. Additionally you can keep a playlist of favorite clips much like Youtube. With the lack of traditional exposure for soccer in America I'm so happy that MLS is finally getting smart in the new media dept.
