MLS weekend flashback: Primetime Emmys
This week's theme: The Primetime Emmys show.....
Columbus Crew 0, FC Dallas 0: 16,708 at Crew Stadium. Having guided FCD to a league-record 10-game unbeaten streak on the road and a 12-match unbeaten run overall, not to mention a league-low two losses through 21 matches, MLS Coach of the Year favorite Schellas Hyndman is the undisputed "Top Chef."
Toronto FC 0, Real Salt Lake 0: 21,047 at BMO Field. In "The Amazing Race" for the four wild-card slots, TFC is on the outside looking in despite being in third place in the weak Eastern Conference.
New York Red Bulls 2, San Jose Earthquakes 0: 21,859 at Red Bull Arena. Thierry Henry scores his first league goal in front of a big crowd as New York pulls within four points of conference leader Columbus. Pure "Glee".
Philadelphia Union 2, New England Revolution 1: 13,578 at Gillette Stadium. "You Don't Know Jack," but you will soon enough. Union rookie Jack McInerney, who just turned 18, scores the equalizer five minutes after entering for his second MLS goal. (By the way, Philly selected him in the first round with a draft pick acquired from D.C. United along with Fred and allocation money for Troy Perkins.)
Colorado Rapids 3, Houston Dynamo 0: 11,511 at Dick's Sporting Goods Park. "Mad Men" Lovel Palmer and Pablo Mastroeni are involved in a midfield commotion. Palmer is tossed in the 10th minute as the Dynamo's playoff hopes are almost "Lost."
Kansas City Wizards 2, Los Angeles Galaxy 0: 20,112 at Home Depot Center. The Galaxy remains atop the overall standings, but with three losses in four league matches, supporters are recommended to "Curb Your Enthusiasm" about strolling to MLS Cup.
Chivas USA 1, D.C. United 0: 12,517 at Home Depot Center. A shot hits the crossbar and then the back of the keeper's leg before going wide, and another is cleared off the goal line. For DCU, which is threatening MLS's single-season scoring low, it's all "Breaking Bad."
