    I hate the new MLS site for a number of reasons. I had so much trouble trying to find Toronto’s line up from their first two games, and I figured the MLS site would at least have that in their recaps. But no. Why can’t they look at how the rest of the world covers soccer? There is a reason for the uniformity.

  2. Jorge Maradona says:

    How do I get to the NY Red Bulls SSS Stadium by train from Philadelphia. I believe If Im correct the I can catch the Path and stop at Harrison, and it should be only 3 minutes walk from there.

    PS: Can somebody verify that for me, and please answer by Tuesday, since I will decide either to go by train or Bus, or drive.

  3. Something like that. If you’re coming from Philly, take the R7 to Trenton. Switch to NJ Transit and get the train up to Newark. Then hop off and get on the PATH to Harrison. Check this page out too: http://www.njtransit.com/hp/hp_servlet.srv?hdnPageAction=HomePageTo
