You know how your brain felt as you read that headline? That's how my brain felt for the entirety of the match between the Los Angeles Galaxy and the Philadelphia Union. I can feel my brain melting inside of my skull as I type this. This post is basically a race against the clock. Hopefully, I can finish it before I run out of time. Basically, the game between the Galaxy and Union was hardly a game at all. The only time it resembled what we know as football (or soccer) was the goal, when David Beckham hit a great free kick into the penalty area that was headed in by Leonardo in the 35th minute. Before that point, the game was just kind of boring. The last 10 minutes were boring too. No big, right? Games are boring all the time.
Then, the proverbial s--- hit the fan. Referee Paul Ward showed Chris Birchall a red card for...well...nobody knows. The incident wasn't caught on camera, and no one that was at the game has explained it to the public yet. Birchall was certainly in an argument with Carlos Ruiz, but no one knows what he did.
At that point, the Union proceeded to pretend that they were the team that had 10 men for a while as they did literally nothing. Paul Ward showed a bunch of yellow cards for nothing. Then he sent off little Jack Mac for talking smack. Oh, and during this 45 minute period, just like the previous one, basically no football happened.
This game made my brain hurt a lot, and I can feel the pain getting worse. I'mlsotgin functin fast.Isee the light. Goodbsggggggggggggggaffds !??#!
