Scum festers through Metro, 4:1

Believe it or not, dear reader, there are some out there who consider our little website a tad too... negative. A tad too... pessimistic. A tad too... cynical. No, it's true! There is a certain percentage of population that likes to wave the Red Bull (New York) flag with glee usually reserved for callow teenage girls (not that we have anything against callow teenage girls). Yay! Yippie!

But here, we try to learn from history. We try to look for trends, on and off the field. After all, we're in 17th year of this downtrodden franchise. Certain things tend to repeat themselves.

So this nice little run we just had, the four-game offensive explosion that we just endured. That was fun, wasn't it? Never mind the fact that game after game the team was making juvenile defensive mistakes. Thankfully, they scored enough on the other end to get the points. But the offensive explosion had to end. It did so in the second half versus San Jose last week, and Metro settled for a draw.

We wish we got a draw tonight.

In these 17 years, we've seen a lot of bad games. A lot of games where Metro just fails to show up. A lot of games where we hang out head and wish we never made the choice to support this team. And, unfortunately, a lot of these games have taken place at the hands of DC Scum in the raccoon-infested dump that is RFK Stadium.

So tonight is just one in the list of many. One pathetic, terrible, inexcusable pile of feces that Metro laid at RFK. So we'll just leave it at that. 4:1? Somehow that sounds better than what this game really was.

But who knows, maybe next week they will turn it around. It has happened before, after all. Maybe we'll brush off this past game as just another bump on the road to glory that this franchise is destined for...

What? Don't laugh!

Yay! Yippie!

Lineup: Meara, Lade, Holgersson, Keel, Solli, Palsson, McCarty, Ballouchy, Richards, Cooper, Henry. Subs: Lindpere, Ruthven, Arteaga.
