  • Wilderness Walk: A Win in Cloud City


    After a, let’s say, disappointing loss last week against Toronto FC in which Minnesota United gave up two different leads and lost despite scoring three goals on the road, the Loons finally have a home win. The previous two matches in the newly-opened Allianz Field ended in draws (3-3 against New York City FC and 0-0 against the LA Galaxy). Head coach Adrian Heath and company have topped D.C. United and Wayne Rooney 1-0 with a late goal from either striker Angelo Rodriguez or right back Romain Metanire. Personally, I’d like to give the owl to Romain, as I still irrationally blame Rodriguez for Christian Ramirez (my beautiful soccer boy) leaving the club last season.

    Look: was it a good game? No, not really. Was it exciting? Yes, as is all soccer (especially in person). Will it go down as a great match? Nah.

    Was it fun to sing Wonderwall and celebrate a Loons victory at home? Heck yes.

    There’s not a lot of news today, so take a minute, watch the highlights, and let’s roll.
