One of the takeaways from this season should be that there are never any guarantees in sports. Don't put the cart before the horse. Don't count your chicks before they hatch. Et cetera. Even the best team on paper can barely squeak into the playoffs.
But when I went to check my email this morning and saw this little tidbit from the front office, quite frankly I checked my calendar because I figured I might have slept a couple extra days:
Dear Red Bulls fan,
Get your playoff tickets now to watch Thierry Henry and the New York Red Bulls take on David Beckham, Landon Donovan, Robbie Keane and the LA Galaxy this Sunday, October 30th at Red Bull Arena at 3:00pm for a Conference Semifinal match.

If the Red Bulls do not advance on Wednesday Oct. 26th when they take on FC Dallas (9pm ET on Fox Soccer Channel), your money will be credited towards 2012 New York Red Bulls tickets. For further questions, please contact Red Bulls Fan Services at 1.877.RBSOCCER or FanServices@newyorkredbulls.
We’ll see you at Red Bull Arena on Sunday!
