Carolina in my mind

Well it's 1:26 a.m. ET as we head on down the road from NC to Atlanta in a rather nice motor coach by USL standards. No leather, but it's got a nice smooth air suspension and not one but TWO drivers to get us on down to the land of peaches and sweet tea.

Spirits on the bus are pretty high, considering the frustration that everyone feels with regard to going without three points for what seems like an eternity. It was a solid overall effort tonight. Just lacking in legitimate scoring chances for the Timbers.

We're one movie in on the bus ride thus far, a New Zealand flick called Once We're Warriors. Well done, but a total downer of a flick to be sure. Next up, the exact opposite of the opener with a showing of Semi Pro.

Surprisingly, there's plenty of traffic here on Tobocco Road during the early morning hours. I think a truck driver was falling asleep beside us, but our driver was on his toes and fired off the horn to straighten him out.

If we make the A-T-L before daylight, I'll be shocked.

Match Musings - Game 15
  • Not impressed with the Railhawks, but they were good enough at home to get the result.
  • Disappointed to be below .500 at the midpoint, but this team has too much talent to go on like this much longer.
  • Too distracted by Semi Pro to finish this list.
