One Last Look at the Preseason
The Crew have racked up a good record this preseason against some good competition such as the Everton and Liverpool reserve teams. The team, however, dropped their last game against the Austin Aztex. Even though the Crew lost, I was most impressed to see some pictures of Frankie Hejduk throwing himself into a tackle or Emmanuel Ekpo run past a defender.
The offseason has flown by and the preseason is nearly over. Next week the Crew has to prove they are the best team in MLS all over again, starting in Houston. It’s hard to believe the games will start mattering again. It just seems like a few weeks ago I was celebrating in the warm L.A. sun. All of that counts for nothing and it seems like people are looking past the Crew to Chicago, Salt Lake, or Toronto. As much as I like to bask in the glory of last season; I guess I am eager to see if the team can prove it again.
