Surprised I have to start this…
So, I resigned to watch the CONCACAF Champions League semi with LAFC playing some thugs and LAFC played down to it, both playing down a man. América played second half without their coach who was red-carded, though it was obvious from several shots of him talking on a walkie-talkie in the stands that he was still coaching. Hard to watch such an unbeautiful game, though Vela had two goals in the first minutes of the second half.
LAFC advanced to the final last night. Better soccer, thug-wise, but still lots of incomplete passes, lack of control. LAFC go ahead, then give up two sweet goals to lose.
And, C-Bus won the MLS Cup a few weeks ago. Yay. RIP MAPFRE Stadium, though it will be repurposed as the Crew training ground
