OK, lets say you've been wanting to catch a Red Bulls soccer match at Giants Stadium, but the team's lackluster play this season is making you stay home. Or maybe you're not sure if its worth the drive out from wherever you're at for a mere 90 minutes of action.
Finally, here's your incentive to make it out to the Swamp...
The MetroStars/DC United rivalry is the closest thing in the USA to a Boca Juniors/River Plate style "Classico", so you've got that going for you this Sunday. Add in a heapin' helpin' of classic (and sometimes obscure) vinyl, spun before your eyes and ears under the East Rutherford sun, smack dab in the middle of a tailgate party thrown by the local Empire Supporters Club, and you've got a bonafide event.
I can personally vouch for the mad platter skillz of DJ's Mike 2 Dishes and Jonny Metro, but sadly not for the quality of play inside the stadium...but luckily, the musical magic kicks in again post-match.
The action'll be in lot 16A. Get there early for a prime parking spot near the grills, and practice your best sad "I'm out of beer" face to see how many gratis brewski's you can get handed to you!
