Was the first round seeded? The Mexican team SKC played shouldn't even be in the same league with the other three. Houston, Atlanta, and NY Red Bulls will play the #1, #2, and #6 Mexican Primera Division teams. The team SKC played is at #15. Two points above relegation if they do that with the last three teams.

Not seeded traditionally, necessarily. They try to line it up so that the second round is all MLS vs Liga MX. But with five MLS teams there has to be one such match in the opening round. The other seven round one games feature a team from MLS/Liga MX vs a team from Central America/Caribbean. Obviously there are upsets from time to time, like the team from Costa Rica that just ate Toronto's lunch. Now Toronto is coming off of a bad MLS season of course, but they also made it all the way to the final match of this thing last year.

My thoughts from the Game:

1) Wholly f#ck! we had a game today!
2) As an Avid Buckeye Football fan, today's weather was down right pleasant.
3) 17.9K announced attendance, I'll take it; but had hoped for the stands to look more full. The one row of NYRB supporters was cute.
3) The Pregame season ticket holder "brunch" was delightful, but why only Corona was offered for the free drink passes?
4) Santos, Santos, Santos, he has they flashes of speed, jets down the wing, everyone gets excited, then face plant. uggg. (literally, no one touched him, he just ran until he tripped and did a face plant, and kinda ended the game.)
5) Fernandez for New York needs to be carded for his theatrics. The card he got on Harrison was an abomination. (Afful had position jumped up to chest the ball down, in the replay his elbow was away from his body (important.) Fernandez comes flying in Jet Lie jump kick style, he is way late and out of position on the challenge, gets no where close to the ball, but during his reckless challenge his head collides with Aful's elbow, and he "knocks" himself out. Literally lies motionless on the field. Ref stops the game, issues the card, they cart Fernandez off the field, he pops right up and checks himself back in before New York even kicks the free ball awarded to him for the foul. err.) 
6) The type of soccer I enjoy most starts with a creative dominant center midfielder. It seems to me Artur and Trapp's favorite play is the pass back to a defender. Love Higuin's play style, but he doesn't control the midfield. Seems like all we do is the 4-2-3-1, is that a weakness of this formation or not having a dominant center?
7) Seeing Berhalter up in the stands was a pleasant treat.
8) So glad I found the Super Secret Hiawatha exit, to leave the stadium by,

GLORY TO COLUMBUS!

beefed = did not win
combined score of 1 - 9. Not looking good for USA.

that redbulls game went south fast. rb score 2 early to lead 2-0 and even up the aggregate, hold on for about 70 minutes, then floodgates open, and end up down 4-2 after 4 goals in less than 10 minutes. was kinda amazing really. one of them being a blast from beyond the midline.

Kansas City probably has the best chance of advancing out of the USA teams. Their first leg was a 2-1 road loss to the Costa Rican team. They host leg 2 tomorrow.

Looking like an all Mexico Champions League Final, after KC got obliterated in the first leg of the semifinals 5-0.
