SAN DIEGO -- The Dodgers and Padres have produced some of the most memorable games of the 2021 season. Wednesday night’s 5-3 Dodgers win at Petco Park topped them all, jam-packing every situation into a 16-inning, five-hour rollercoaster.
TORONTO. - Toronto Argonauts were back at BMO Field in Toronto led by Nick Arrrrrbuckle for the opening home game of the 2021 Season. It was Arbuckle’s first start for the Argos winning 30 to 23 over the visiting Bombers. Last week the Argos did not look ready for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, defence offense or even special teams. This week was another story with the Argos even though they had to cover for multiple injuries. Arbuckle was 23 of 32 passes completed for 310 yards. The Argo defense was close to throwing a no hitter.
New York. - When I first gathered my thoughts on what to write for this article I had a ton of ideas running through my head. The excitement of PUMAS fans traveling from Mexico, LA, Houston and all over. Admitted Dodger fans and Astros fans putting their mutual contempt aside for a night to root for their favorite soccer team. That's the first thing I saw when I got to the stadium. This match got me hyped to true soccer energy of obsessed fans outside the states. I feed off that big time, and I was pumped!
New York. - Tonight we saw a tale of two halves with the Gents In Blue. A first half that started out as well as could be asked for by jumping out to an immediate 2 goal advantage. First there was Santiago Rodriguez in his first ever start making his presence known by scoring a goal in the 12th minute. Then there was Izzy Tajouri-Shradi with his 7th of the year at the 21st minute, tying him with Medina for the team lead. By the end of the first half it went about as well as could be expected. Then the wheels promptly fell off to start the second half which is where I want to focus my attention; because it's not the points you gain, but the points you DON'T that make a greater difference.
