Second City… First in Hearts of MLS Corp.?

Last night Chicago decisively handled New England 3-0 advancing the Fire one step closer to the 2008 MLS Cup.
The Second City squad are now forced to wait the result of Crew v. Wizards tonight – both teams tied at one goal apiece after the first leg. (here’s a preview of tonight’s match)
Chicago will face its next opponent in the upcoming Eastern Confernce Championship match.

Chicago finished the regular season third overall in points total behind Columbus and Houston, but according to one blogger the league would greatly benefit and are subsequently “praying” for a Chi-Town Cup triumph.

If what Freedman says is true I would have to argue that MLS is likely drooling over the Philly prospect. When Philadelphia finally plants its imprint on the MLS map starting in 2010, the league will finally have the catalyst it needs to begin building rivalries between its clubs. With New York and D.C. just a short, horse-drawn carridge ride away, Philadelphia’s Phantactical Phan base – starting with the beloved SoBs – will help make the Mid-Atlantic region (stretching from New York/New Jersey… whatever… to the banks of the Potomac) soccer central for MLS. Rivalries are a cornerstone of sports fanaticsm… Yanks/Sox, Bears/Packers, Fighting Irish/Trojans, Leafs/Canadiens, Ali/Frazier, Obama/McCain… you get the idea.

All the more reason to get psyched for first kick in 2010. Who needs David Beckham when you’ve got Phila and a few SoBs?!
