The Knee Jerk: RSL vs. San José


We got doped. San Jose gave us thirty minutes of arid, wide open midfield to do whatever we wanted and we burned out. I guess the altitude just hit us or something. We got complacent with our one goal advantage and the earthquakes shook us.

Dear Wondolowski: Please step back from scoring goals against RSL. Love, Andy. PS Boo.

We could have won this game in those first thirty minutes. We had so many chances, but our complacency was taken.

We have been supervised. That Marcinkowski is a keeper of quality. We raised our hands. We gave a good ten final minutes, but it was too little too late.

Maybe the playoffs are too cold. Too much end of season running. Maybe no one wants Mastroeni to become a head coach. San Jose might have just wanted to save face by showing they can still hang on despite being out of the playoffs.

Looking at the score, you would think we made a bigger change than that.

Dear Vancouver, LA, Minnesota and LAFC: Please give us a playoff spot for you. Love, Andy. PS Boo.

Excessive reactions

PS Boo could be boo hoo.

I wonder if RSL had a bad case of diarrhea in the middle of this game. That would explain things. Diarrhea is no fun. You need to have Immodium on hand, just in case.

I’m going to start eating Halloween chocolate now. I need it more than the children. Instead, I’ll hand out toothbrushes to detractors to make everyone think I’m a dentist. Or shuriken! Then they’ll think I’m a ninja.
