Yep, last week the Philadelphia Union made (history) when they tied at the 94th minute against FC Dallas. The stadium was packed with 25k+ Union fans on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. Yes their record is not what you would want it to be but look at the bright side, Philly has a team and a fan base. Although I did think to myself, "Where are the Latinos?" Alas, the show must move on!
Not only is it the inaugural MLS season, but players have to deal with playing eight of their first twelve games on the road. However, after some thorough traveling, the Union will be able to play 13 out of their last 20 home games at the new PPL Park in Chester, PA. The inaugural match against the Seattle Sounders is on Sunday, June 27th. See you there.
