MLS Cup 2008: Almost, But Not Quite, for RBNY

So on the day after MLS Cup 2009 I'm reminded that last November 23rd, exactly one year ago today, I was at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California (along with You Suck Corrales and about 300 other Red Bulls fans), watching the Red Bulls lose to the Columbus Crew at MLS Cup 2008. I'm actually still asking myself how in heavens they even got there? It had everything to do with some bad DC United finishing against Columbus in their last game of the regular season, but no matter. Through a micracle of God, we got by the Houston Dynamo in the Western Conference Semi-Final and then by Real Salt Lake in the Western Conference Final. Our luck ended right there as we then came up against one Guillermo Barros-Schelotto, who single-handedly killed us in the Final. He's on my shopping list for next season, by the way (go get him Red Bull).
