  1. David M says:

    And why should anyone care about some minor-leaguers?

    • Hal says:

      there aren’t traditional minor leagues in soccer. Soccer is not baseball. Here is the big distinction. Lower division clubs in soccer compete with MLS for a trophy (US Open Cup). That doesn’t happen anywhere else in American sports.

      But to answer your question. Why shouldn’t I care? If I’m from Atlanta i’m not supposed to support my local club because they aren’t in MLS? That’s a bit elitist isn’t it?

    • Clyde Frog says:

      Some of us just aren’t as sophisticated as you, David.

    • dude says:

      Support the second division, David.

      More soccer = more good

    • Zardoz says:

      David used to be one of those rednecks ranting about how he hates soccer up until he discovered MLS a year ago. Now he just rants about lower divisions.

  2. Increase says:

    Well one team is likely to be in the MLS fairly soon.

  3. cps says:

    let’s go ATL.

  4. Medicine Man says:

    The MLS All-stars play a European team in their mid-season exhibition. How about an NASL All-star team playing an MLS team?

    • pd says:

      or how about we just go back to east versus west, incorporate MLS and NASL and set up promotion and relegation once and for all?

  5. Mike R says:

    There is no more Soccerbowl the last real one was won by the Chicago Sting. Any others since then are fake

  6. Voight says:

    It’s half time and the cosmos are not wining 7-0 yet?

  7. petedx says:

    Wow, turned it on right for the goal by Senna. Good goal. It should be noted the camera work is shaky and all over the place, it’s like watching a Paul Greengrass movie.

  8. petedx says:

    Also I was excited that Pedro Mendes played for atlanta somehow. Not the same Pedro Mendes.

  9. chris says:

    Embarrassing amount of diving and time-wasting by Cosmos in the 2nd half. Pathetic stuff.

  10. Joe says:

    any links?

  11. CSD says:

    Good game intensity throughout

    • Love it or leave it says:

      I wish this was on regualar ESPN and not just ESPN3/deportes

      I turned it on at the end, nice celebration ceremony at the end.

      Not sure if the game was in NY but if so they shouldve used the red bulls stadium (maybe)

  12. Smith says:

    Cosmos should challenge the MLS Cup winner just for the hell of it

  13. Jan says:

    I was flipping the channels and came across this game and I at first thought it was a high school game the quality was so bad. Sad that a once great team that I loved to watch as a kid has sunk to this level. Sad, very sad.

  14. Ian says:

    Anyone know the attendance?
