Lucky Thirteen...

It seemed, for a while at least, like the magic had run out and Sporting KC's unbeaten run would come to an end. But then AJ Soares got sent off in the 82nd minute for denying an obvious goal-scoring opportunity. As Peter Vermes said during the post-game press conference, the team had pretty much dominated the 2nd half, but it seemed like the soccer gods had deemed the men in Sporting blue worthy of a little help. Or something. The team came away with a point, but this was one of the worst-officiated games this season. Terry Vaughn, tonight's referee, has been one of the worst referees in MLS for quite some time. It may seem like I say that a lot, but I always cringe when I see him walk out of the tunnel. Both teams didn't seem very happy with his work tonight, and I can't say that I blame them.

I'm rambling and I'm sorry, but I've got a headache and even Excedrin hasn't helped it. I'll just post some pics and call it a night.

I didn't write down his name, but this guy that sang the national anthem was pretty damn good...


If looks could kill, this linesman would be lying in the morgue...

That's all for now... See you soon...
