MLS Playoffs 2009: Seattle v. Houston
When you say to the uninitiated that you just watched a really exciting nil-nil game they tend to look at you in manner that suggests you are not all there; for them it's like going to Vegas and not gambling. But if you know what's what, a scoreless draw is akin to two blind-folded guys fighting; they may never land a punch but the near misses are what make it entertaining.
Remember U.S.-Argentina at Giants Stadium? Sh*t was classic. Not a goal in sight but I have never sang so loud and so long in my life (or in a downpour). Last night's match wasn't quite as epic (from TV at least but those in the stands might think otherwise) but it was certainly a fine example of the titillating tie. If you missed the match check the highlights above. And to you non-believers I say "yes"; yes you can have highlights from a scoreless match.
