Video: RBNY Take to the RBA Turf For the First Time



It's a surprisingly sunny morning in North Jersey today and as I type this, RBNY are engaged in their very first practice at Red Bull Arena just below me. Having not been in the building since before the seats were put in it's kind of shocking to see in it's completed state.

Hats off to the Austrians because this is the best thing they have put out since Falco; with the roof, no benches and close proximity to public transportation they really raised the game with this place. Plus it smells like a mix of new car and sweet, soft natural grass. Amazing.

And yes, those rays of light you see are the Soccer Gods shining upon the New York franchise. Doesn't happen often but when it does...

There's not many stadiums I would use this word to describe, but it is truly beautiful.

RBNY should have an open practice at the stadium. Can't believe that hasn't been planned yet

They need one of these on the West Coast! Downtown LA! This is definitely worthy of a trip East! Beautiful!

Please no strike, please no strike, please no strike, please no strike.

I'm planning to fly halfway across the country this summer to enjoy a game in this cathedral.

Please no strike.
