It was better when NASL was around and so there were more levels to it, and there are things they could do to make it better, but it’s still a really great event.
When tiny Christos FC from Baltimore scored to take an early 1-0 lead last season, I’ve never heard a noise quite like it. Really great to see a few minnows do some eating.
