The South Couch Report : Toronto v New York

Full disclosure, I made my choices and in the face of the results I stand by those choices. I had the opportunity to go see a pointy ball game in Hamilton against the much-hated rivals about 4 months ago, and I chose that over some random-ass home game near the end of the season against Red Bulls. Also full disclosure, the other game I went to, the home team blew it in spectacular fashion against the much-hated rivals. Meanwhile, at...

The South Couch Report: Toronto vs New England
