No doubt the game of the season. A fabulously, entertaining affair. What a crowd. Somehow we got a very offensive and attacking game. Lots of shots, lots of goals, a penalty kick. Up and back soccer. Great passing. Great dribblling. It was draining to watch. There were hard tackles, yellow cards galore and controversy yet somehow the game didn't devolve into a foul-hack fest. Probably because Kovalenko and Nelsen missed the game. This game had it all. 3-3. 30 minutes of OT. Penalty kicks and Sudden Death PK. The drama. Some poorly taken PK's. Why did Matt Reis take the 2nd PK? That was a surprise. Moreno and Ralston scuff theirs. Quarants and Adu nail theirs. Go figure. Fo a non-partisan observer, the KC v LA game was quite boring by comparison. Where was this Revolution team all season? The game was played with urgency, it was played with imagination and emotion. It made many of the regular season games look like they were sleepwalking or just going through the motions. This game mattered of course, it just painted a stark contrast to many of the regular season games where it doesn't really matter, teams know they will get a another chance next week. Then another and another. This Conference Final game was a great advertisement for what MLS can be - but often what it is not. Somehow MLS must inject more of this type of passion and emotion into its regular season. We all have a bone to pick with the MLS playoff system - but lets give credit, the playoffs have produced the best 2 games of the past 2 years. As they should. KC and DC deserve to be playing for the Cup and it would be nice if that game is half as entertaining as the Revs v DC game was.
