Has anyone dried off from last night's rain?

Here is out game recap from last night as we sat through a two hour delay after an entertaining four minutes of water logged soccer.
It wasn't a 5-0 blowout like before against Houston but I'm not sure it was a positive result either last night. Though part of me thinks given the weather, the delay and the how things went, a draw was probably fair for both sides in the end.
Now after a blowout loss and a draw, keeping the cannon this year is probably not likely.
And here is one more look at last night's game.

If Earnie Stewart thinks the Philly pitch was sloppy, he should see Toyota Stadium.
I'm still impressed at how much New York had to give up to get him in a trade with Orlando. He can be frustrating at times to watch but he is the type of defender you want leading a defense in this league most of the time though.
As quickly as NYC found a lead in this one, RSL came back and scored three straight on their way to a big road win.
I guess not everyone is happy with Andrea Pirlo these days in NYC.
Tough news for Kaka as he was recently named to the Brazilian squad but after picking up an injury he will now end up missing the big tournament.
Our draw wasn't the only draw of the night in MLS.
// Copa America //
A simple question with probably a simple answer. Honestly, I don't think it is a bad thing if the US doesn't win. Now if the US doesn't compete well, that is an entirely different story.
Nothing like a little satire to get the tournament going I suppose.
I still think it comes down to either Mexico or Argentina in this tournament.
