Game Day!  San Jose Earthquakes vs. Chicago Fire

Sunday evening on the Pitch with my daughter,  a great night. 

Chicago was racking up penalties like they were collectable, the first half  brought them half a dozen penalty calls, as well as two yellow cards and a hand-ball.  Not exactly top notch playing from the windy city team.

The first half ended scoreless,  but the Quakes got on the board about 2 minutes into the 2nd half.

At the 90 minute mark,  the Quakes were up 2-0, in spite of a self-goal by Chicago that was not counted against them, for reasons I cannot fathom…

About 3 minutes into extra time, the Fire managed to eke one in, for a final score of 2-1.

We had a good time, as we always do at soccer games, but I have to say it’s disappointing to see “professional” athletes performing 2-handed shoves from behind, blatant holding and other childish tricks in an attempt to gain advantage.

I’m happy for another Quakes win, and had a nice time hanging out with the Kid, but I’d really love to see Chicago clean up their act, it was disgraceful. They may take Salt Lake’s position as my least liked team in the league!

Anyhow, that’s enough of that. It is just a game, after all.

Thanks for stopping by!
