Florida has been kicked around by critics for years as a place where professional soccer could not thrive. But as I wrote on Thursday, things have changed in three major Florida markets. Foremost among them is Orlando who played its first MLS game Sunday afternoon at asold-outCitrus Bowl.

This time the shoe is on the other foot. It was the Columbus Crew's turn to collapse under late game pressure and surrender a two goal lead.
