The essence of Metro, last night in Colorado. Poor Colorado.

What a strange, strange little game they had last night there in Colorado. If you missed it - and how could you not prioritize a Thursday night Chivas-Rapids battle? - then you missed much of the last six years of Metro history encapsulated in one match.
Or rather, encapsulated in just thirty-some minutes. I tuned in around the 60th minute myself, just in time to see:

The Incredible Ballooning Clint Mathis winding up with all the agility of a creaky gate, nudging a volley into a empty net. Because it's a volley and the powers that be tend to wet themselves over such things, it'll certainly contend for MLSNET goal of the week honors. And that will be ludicrous. I see, or score, a goal like this around once a week in the park. 2 goals on the season for Clint, which puts him ahead of last year's pace, I guess.

Mike Petke barging an opposing midfielder over for a soft second yellow and early shower. A little clumsy by Mike, but that dimwitted call put Colorado under the gun for the last 25 minutes, and they didn't prove up to the task. Brings a tear to the eye of the nostalgic Metro fan.

Jonathan Bornstein scoring an extra-time goal straight out of Clint Mathis '00. Now that's what we used to get.....for about 8 weeks before he tore up that knee.

And finally, a Bob Bradley team giving up the lead, a minute after grabbing it in extra time, and settling for a draw.

It couldn't get much more like Metro.
