The Best Game On TV Was A Soccer Game


Couch potatoes across the country mostly watched the exhaustive roll call known as the NFL Draft. Others watched the NBA playoffs, while a select few watch the Stanley Cup hidden on their channel guide.

Of all those sporting choices the best game on television was a soccer game.

The Los Angeles Galaxy/Chivas USA Super Clasico on the Fox Soccer Channel was not technically the best soccer MLS has to offer. The run of play was sometimes sloppy and both backlines played junior college-level defense, but the end product is exactly what non-soccer loving Americans say the game doesn't possess-offense.

David Beckham and Landon Donovan put on a frenetic offensive performance unrivaled in the history of MLS. The second half was a litany of torrid rushes against a Chivas defense lost amidst the accurate crosses of Beckham and the tenacious sniping ability of a reborn Donovan.

Not to be outdone, Chivas kept the momentum quite equal that made the 5-2 result far closer than the box score would indicate.

What other excuses do Americans have not to embrace MLS other than "nobody scores" after the back of the net hit seven stylish times?
