Colorado Wins Their 1st MLS Cup

Contributing Editor Graham Fox

Well, the MLS season has finally come to an exciting close with one of those games that rarely happens, a come from behind win. If TV commentators and my half drunk memory of the event are to be believed, this was the 1st time in 50 games that Colorado have won after trailing at half-time.

Of course they had 30 extra minutes in which to get that win, but by hook or by crook, they did.

Casey Conor scrambled home a goal while laying on his ass, and then Kandji forced a cross of George John's thigh to secure the win.

I've seen wildly swinging opinions across the internet today from: "It was a great and exciting game" to "It was a horrible game with boring long balls" to "There was a great atmosphere" to "The TFC supporters staged a massive protest and all left at half time and ruined the cup final."

All I really know is I was entertained. And I'm sad the MLS season has drawn to a close.

Don't look now, but the expansion draft is about to begin.
