PR looked pretty good for the first half hour or so. The second Saprissa goal was a great shot, the third a bizzare bounce off of rock hard turf.

Re: Red Bulls . . good to know their Austrian side is just as bad as their New York side . . . the last goal scored by the Israeli side was a comedy of errors . . the RB Salzburg defender collided with his goalie on a pretty routine through ball, leaving the Maccabi player an empty net.

The Sportscenter anchor noted that the third goal only went in because of the field.

What a disgrace that Saprissa can host international games on that kind of turf.

Hey Goff, thanks a lot for inflicting more emotional distress... I already saw the replays a few times over. Actually, once was more than enough the first time.

With the exception of Centeno's goal, the others were defensive breakdowns and the first one all started when we were just just about to enter the attacking third and Sean Fraser missed Steele's overlapping run on his left and Fraser manages to giftwrap a pass right back to a sport with no white jersey and two Sapprisa players...

Frustrating. We had a chance to get a point last night. Coulda...shoulda..woulda

I hate that stadium/field.

Not right that internationals should be played on that field. It's worse than Giant's stadium.. if that's possible.

Off topic, but here's to Ted Kennedy. May not have liked his ideas all the time, but at least he was trying to do something useful with his time on the planet.
