RBNY vs Galaxy: Down, But Not Out

My apologies for the late post, but I've been dealing with internet outages as well as having to cut a massive amount of tree branches around my property. But nevermind all that, we're down but still not out of this one. As the great You Suck Corrales said, it's half-time and the Red Bulls are only down 1-0 - after a hard fought defeat at the hands of the visiting LA Galaxy this past Sunday.

This game was decided on a 15th minute Mike Magee goal (which must have been the 50th set play goal given up by RBNY this season). Former Red Bull Magee then showed a massive lack of class, with his over-the-top goal celebration, in front of Johnny Toro's Raging Bull Nation corner. The Red Bulls really should have taken something from this game but LA back-up keeper Josh Saunders had the game of his life, making several - massive - saves to preserve the 1-0 for LA. A massive post-game melee, which saw Rafa Marquez and LA's Juninho sent off, put an exclamation point at the end of this one.

The Red Bulls must now do something tomorrow that no other MLS team has done this season: win at the Home Depot Center. Mr. Backe believes it can be done, and so do I. It's going to be a difficult task, however, as anyone who was @The Cathedral of Football this past Sunday knows Don Garber's 'David-Must-Win-MLS-Cup-This-Season' directive was in full effect. The Red Bulls will not only have to emerge victorious against this season's 'Supporters Shield' winner, but also against the Referee and his assistants. So come on boys - let's effing do it and stick it to that monotoned whinning little bitch (and the rest of his crew)!

The Support was effing massive at this one. I've not heard it louder this season @The Cathedral of Football. If the Red Bulls make it to the big game, the Viper's Nest crew will be there with our usual massive coverage. If not, we'll do it all over again next year. Viper Out!
