The Crew Won!

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!
