NY Red Bulls vs. Philadelphia Union

We did it! We beat Philly 1-0 and secured out spot in the playoffs!

Despite the horrible seating situation where I had to stand for 15 fucking minutes before they moved people out of my seat because the stadium decided to cater to the opposing team and fuck over its own fans, it was a great game.

First home playoff game might be next weekend.
