It a strange, wild, little league we follow, isn’t it? The two-time defending champions go down to a team that only a few weeks ago were odds on to not make the playoffs and the league’s greatest postseason choking dog completes its business against KC despite all the traditional Crew postseason meltdown signs being in place (crap weather, tiny crowd, etc.)
Btw, I believe this now means that not one MLS team that competed in the Champions Cup, Superliga, or Champions League advanced beyond the first round of the playoffs. Pretty amazing indication of how those games can disrupt a league season, isn’t it?
Also, we’ll find out next week if Danny Cepero just had his Jim Carey moment, or if he really is as good as he appeared in Houston. The jury is still out with me.
