    Not offered on Air New Zealand domestic flights. I'll be flying from Auckland to Dunedin as the game gets started and it's a 2 hour flight. I thought I was being clever by flying on Sunday the 10th, but the international dateline won that contest.

    Houston has been disappointing...They still have a whole half to recover...

    IMO, Hollingshead is probably the best American player to never make it into a national team camp. (And second-best to never get a cap -- Mike Magee was in a January camp but missed the game with food poisoning and was never called up again.)

    I was flying from California to New York on Jet Blue when live TV on a plane was a novelty.

    The subway series was on and as we were coming into land the crew announced they were turning the entertainment system off.

    It was the only time I've heard passengers demand the pilot circle. The crew decided to leave the TV on.

    I just heard a "45 DOWN, 45 TO GO!". Does John Strong have a trademark? Thought that was his thing lol.

    I won't be in the air, but I will be attending UI Commencement to cheer my students as they graduate. Hopefully Apple doesn't give away the result on the landing page and I can use the "start from beginning" feature when I get home.

    They gotta pull Micael for concussion. He doesn't look right.

    EDIT: they are. Seems like a foul of some sort mightsta shoulda been called? I don't get it.

    By my count if Houston somehow wins this, it will be the 3rd team Steve Clark has played for in MLS Cup.

    Playing for Columbus, they lost to Portland.
    Playing for Portland, they lost to NYC in penalties.

    Does LAFC get an extra sub window too or just an extra sub?

    You mean HOU?

    edit: I think you act like the sub never happened.

    Silly me. After the announcers talked about Hadebe coming in, I was thinking, wow, they are putting in a teenaged CB as the concussion substitute in a game of this magnitude? He must be good! So, I look him up. Only to find out that his NAME is "Teenage." Man, do I have egg on my face.

    I thought just the extra sub, but I could be wrong. I probably shouldn't even speculate.

    You cannot play the ball back from that position!

    LAFC gets a bonus sub to match Houston's 6. I just can't remember if it's an additional window or if the 6th sub must fit into their 3 windows.

    We go from one of the best MLS playoff games in league history to a remake of a MLS playoff game circa 2005. And I have a rooting interest in one of these teams out in Cali.
    The Herrera vs. Vela el Tri rivalry has been nice to see unfold in MLS lore. Luisa Hernandez is somewhere watching with Jorge Campos.
    Still, the defending MLS Cup champions are holding the current Open Cup champions at bay.

    Eric Quill and or Ross Paule need to be mentioned here amigo.

    After making a sensational first save tonight, every save Creapeau has made against the Dynamo have been easy peasy for him.

    Yeah, ref probably should have called the foul by LAFC, but HH really lucky to walk away with one yellow there! :oops:

    Again, the Dynamo with a nutty backpass to the keeper. The obsession with playing the keeper has reached absurd levels.
