Waldo loves Il Brucio

Best moment on an MLS broadcast this year:

With Red Bull down 1-0, Allen Hopkins asked Arena what his message to the team was at halftime. Arena said, "Well, we need to be a little patient. We don't need to get two goals back in the first ten minutes, we gotta be good and sharp in the early part of the second half and try to get that first goal and hopefully the second will come." After a little more, Allen threw it back to the booth for the kickoff.

Stoner set the scene and then Waldo said, "I hope that wasn't the speech at halftime for Ghana."

In the silence, I think I heard either Stoner or Smyth chuckle, but I can't be sure.
