For the first time ever, the Columbus Crew won the Eastern Regional Championships for the Major League Soccer franchise. I wish I could have been there, the stadium was electric with anticipation as the clock counted down for the Columbus win over Chicago 2/1. The beauty of the gaudy HD TV's is that you can really be brought close to the action-almost like being there, without the beer.
If you've never been to a professional soccer game, you must get to one. The fans are some of the most engaged I've seen-jumping and drumming and painted their teams colors. Save for a college playoff game, these fans are really enjoying themselves.
Soccer comes on Thursday nights around here on ESPN, channel 30.
Come on America!
