Phil from Playaz Ball asked recently [paraphrasing] whether people were actually attending MLS games. If you have 7 minutes to spare and don't mind watching a little soccer I encourage you to view the following - it will really show you what a big time atmosphere there was at RFK. Listen to the crowd explode with each goal and watch the reactions (particularly the crowd behind the goal with the toilet paper and confetti). This is why I love these games...
DC United struck first, followed by New England... and back and forth 2 more times until the game was tied at 3-3 at the end of 90 minutes... click here to see all 6 goals. should open windows media player
After 90 minutes there were 2 15-minute periods of extra time (overtime) with no goals scored. That led to a penalty kick shootout. Brian Carroll (incidentally a player I very much dislike) ended up scoring the difference-maker for United, but goalkeeper Nick Rimando had to keep New England out to seal the win... click here to see Brian Carroll's penalty and then Nick Rimando's game-winning save. ditto media player
