Poetry Corner Kicks' rose-colored glasses are broken.

"That was turrible." – Charles Barkley.

The Philadelphia Union were undone by a RED card which had the Union fans seeing RED against the team in RED. I'm sensing a theme here. You know what? In order to make it up to you for using a quote from such a disreputable source such and Sir Charles, let's blatantly riff on someone slightly more reputable, the poet Allen Tate and his sonnet "Red Stains", which you can read first here to get the idea for the below.

Why snow games are a rarity

It's not that playing soccer in the snow is a bad idea, it's that stadiums here aren't built for it.

The Philadelphia Union's match against FC Dallas being postponed due to snow was unfortunate, yet not totally unexpected. It's not the first time that an MLS match has been postponed due to snow, nor was it even the first that the Union played in that had to be held off due to it.

In the mind of yours truly, the Union have been given a poor schedule by the MLS.

Unfortunately the combination of a Thursday and my relocation to Maryland I am incapable of doing so.

Sporting KC Fall in Dallas

Sporting Kansas City's first road trip of the year didn't turn out very well for KC in Dallas tonight as a Blas Perez brace helped to lead Dallas to a 3-1 win over KC. While KC didn't look extremely well in the loss, and probably deserved to lose the game, the scoreline did flatter Dallas a little bit considering Perez and about four other Dallas players were offside on Perez's second goal, and without that goal, the question becomes whether KC would have been pushing forward as much leading to Dallas' third goal on the counter.
