Colorado Rapids Vs. Columbus Crew Live, MLS Cup Playoffs 2011: I Swear All The Games Are Not Like This

This game is not on television, so Major League Soccer decided to be kind and stream this match for free on their website. My lovely co-worker Aaron Campeau pointed out that someone, somewhere, though skeptical, saw that MLS was streaming this match online for free and decided to give it a shot. What they've been treated to is a game with a lot of long balls and not a lot of chances. I am not particularly annoyed by this because I have watched the Columbus Crew and Colorado Rapids play both other teams and each other on many occasions. This is what I thought it would be.

But, if you are that guy who Aaron was talking about and you managed to stumble upon this post: I am so sorry. If I knew you, I could have saved you. I could have let you know that this was exactly the wrong match to watch if you were willing to give Major League Soccer a chance. i know this sucks, but it was supposed to suck. Really, there are better games than this. All the time.

It's 0-0 in the 40th minute and neither team has a clear-cut scoring chance.
