This is an excellent photograph. Hernandez looking totally clueless is particularly good.

This is a football match to determine whether the New York Red Bulls will make the PLAYOFFS this year. A win or a draw and we're in. A loss and we have to hope that Portland and Chicago screw up.

Bait Philly fans at The Brotherly Game.

We've been through a lot of awful games this year. Let's hope this isn't another one. Philly has beaten us the last two times we've faced them, and they've looked like they wanted to win more than the Red Bulls. That can't happen tonight. The boys have to come out fired up and keep that intensity for ninety minutes. Once more into the breach, dear friends, once more. Forza.
