LIVE BLOGGING IN PROGRESS: Fuego v. Goats
This one's wide open early.
Chad Barrett just missed badly. Erratic is what Shep Messing called it. I think Blanco called it something like mierda, I'm not sure...
Are these teams jacked up on Red Bull or Sparks? Slow down, guys!
John Thorrington just landed on his head. He might not know his own name right now. Scratch the moonsault, Johnny.
Pretty decent crowd for Chivas USA, thanks to the Cuau factor.
Carey Talley with a great ball to the invisible man at the back post. Why wasn't anybody making the run?
Shep Messing is making far too much sense tonight. I'm disappointed.
Carey Talley does not care for Cuau's theatrics.
Great ball by Sacha, nice header by Talley, except it was right at the keeper. No go for the Goats.
Panchito has turned out to be a pretty good left back. Who woulda thunk it? I wonder if he's getting notice from the Guadalajara goats?
Wow, hell of a finish from Karate Kid Kljestan! 1-0 to the Goats USA. Sacha does the karate celebration, then imitates Cuau's pose. CUAU WILL NOT BE MOCKED, DO NOT MAKE HIM ANGRY
This game is getting rather chippy.
CHIVAS USA 2-0! Panchito with a great pass down the left side to Razov, who follows up with an even better cross. Justin Braun makes the right run to the near post and touches home. IT'S A GOAT PARTY!
Chad Barrett couldn't hit water if he fell out of a boat tonight. Poor fella. He beat he keeper 1v1 outside the box, then shot into the side netting. He's going to need a padded room after this one.
Things just got interesting. Nagamura just got his second yellow in stoppage time and he is gone. Just a stupid foul, no need for it. Shep is aghast!
BEN OLSEN, I HATE YOUR COMMERCIAL, PLEASE MAKE IT STOP, I'M GOING TO START BREAKING THINGS IF I HAVE TO SEE IT 20 TIMES EVERY GAME, ARGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!
okay, I feel much better, sorry...
Chad Barrett, inexplicable! Nagamura, stupid! Shep Messing is getting ridiculous and I like it.
Chicago goes to three in the back by bringing in Andy Herron. Shep talks about how Barrett was looking over, figuring it was his time to be subbed. The poor guy might be on suicide watch after this...
CJ Brown just decked Sacha AND GOT AWAY WITH IT. The ref was right there, stared at the play, and called no foul. CJ still holds the title as the biggest thug in MLS.
The replay just made it look even worse, CJ threw an elbow up high too. Cuau decides to pick up a yellow for running his mouth.
Nice free kick, but Thorrington misses with the shot...
You wouldn't be able to guess that Chicago has a man advantage.
Attiba Harris is in for Razov. Maybe he's going to send CJ to hospital?
Chad Barrett just blocked his teammate's shot. The guy can't catch a break tonight.
Chicago just can not get a ball on goal tonight. They could play for another 2 hours, and still wouldn't get a goal.
SUENO, SUENO, SUENO!!!
If only Jorge Flores could go to Newcastle and play against Full-ham...
"Good thing about goalkeepers... they're too stupid to be scared." Thanks Shep!
I'm checking out, the Goats have sealed this barring a miracle. Chicago has looked pretty bad. I think they're still reeling from the misfortune of Chad Barrett today.
