DC United vs. New York Red Bulls

It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Washington, D.C., utter perfection for a soccer match. DC United's fans were chanting and cheering upon their entrance at Robert F. Kennedy Stadium. Once you walked in you could immediately smell the fried food and beer. You could see the families trying to control their energetic children. And you could see the excitement every single DC United supporter had on their face and in their apparel. Walking down to my seat I noticed the Barra Brava getting ready for the game. Waving their humungous flags, jumping up and down, and playing the drums. They definitely knew how to get the crowd excited for the game. At kickoff the crowd went crazy. DC United came out strong initially, gaining possession, and attempting to create opportunities on goal. The New York Red Bulls fought back hard and eventually took control of the game. The Red Bulls' captain, and former DC United player, Dax McCarty was the difference maker scoring the only goal of the game.
