Incredible. There is no other way to describe it.
For the fourth time in 12 years, Columbus, OH, was the host for a soccer party featuring the United States Men's National Team, Mexico, and a 2-0 US win.
Last weekend after the final match of the season for English soccer giants Chelsea, the team held a post-game ceremony at midfield at Stamford Bridge. A toddler who was supposed to be in the ceremony broke away from the crowd with a ball, dribbled down the field, and kicked it in the goal. And the crowd went nuts for him. Then he turned around and raised his fists in the air, and everyone lost it.
Yes, it is amazing! Buuuut the commentary was just a LITTLE over the top. Argentine soccer stud Lionel Messi dribbled around three defenders to score a goal in a game. The man has incredible touch. Ray Hudson's color commentary, though, was just touched.
The El Paso Rhinos overcame a disastrous first period to score five unanswered goals, roaring back to double the Bay Area Seals, 6-3, in their opening game at the Thorne Cup championship tournament in McCall, ID, Thursday night.
Check out the video highlights as the El Paso Rhinos beat the Boulder Bison, 4-1, to sweep the Mountain Conference championship series and earn a trip to the Thorne Cup Championship Tournament Easter weekend.
The El Paso Rhinos are back in action this weekend against the Boulder Bison. You can listen to the action on 600 ESPN El Paso, but it's even better in person, especially when the Rhinos' team captain, Mike Rivera, is from right here in El Paso. It also helps that Mike is pretty good, too, as you can see.
