RBNY vs. D.C.: I Lose Twice
So I skipped going to the RBNY-D.C. United match yesterday and planned to watch it on DVR Sunday night. After a day out chasing the little guy around I was all stoked to sit on my ass and take in the game finally at about 10pm.
After the 1st D.C. goal I was less excited, but hung in long enough for the New York come back. And then in the 86th minute the broadcast fades to black on MSG Network and the Rangers post-game show starts up. I'm pissed but so beat by what's been a long week & weekend by this point that I just mumble something to the effect off "of course this would happen the one time we are beating D.C." and shuffle my exhausted ass up the stairs assuming that the home team walked away with three points.
By the time I reached the top of the stairs I remembered that this was no ordinary home team, this was New York; the name may have changed but it is still Metro so I better check the scores on the iPhone...just to see. So you can imagine the non-surprise I got when I see that they somehow managed to concede 2 goals in those waning minutes, finding yet a new way to snatch defeat from jaws of victory. So. Lame.
But not as lame as MSG for switching programs in the middle of a game. Metro is terrible but those guys are just disrespectful. If they didn't employ Uncle Shep for all these years I might have sterner words but since they are doing their part to help the aged I will leave it be...so long as they don't do it again.
EDIT: You know the more I think about it maybe MSG did me a favor by not letting me witness the collapse at the end. I already have enough United-related mental scares stored in the soccer portion of my head.
