ESPN to Air NY-LA 'Instant Classic'

It's been almost 5 full days since the Mayhem in the Meadowlands™ and we should all stop talking about it because it is only going to make it that much harder to watch a nil-nil draw between Chivas USA and Columbus but I have just one thing to add. That match was so ill that ESPN Classic has made it the 1st "Instant Classic" for MLS and will rebroadcast the match on Thursday at 7pm EST.

Not only is this an impressive feat for MLS but for soccer in general; the last time I recall them granting a footie match Instant Classic status was that insane Liverpool come-from-behind Champions League match against AC Milan a few years back. Set your DVR's to stun.

Sounds like ESPN is making a concerted effort to push soccer now -- I'm assuming that they have to pay a decent sum to FSC to rebroadcast their game (plus FSC's logo will be plastered all over the picture).
