In the wake of the Red Bulls' 11th-hour win over D.C. United Wednesday night, soccer fan Will Smith wrote an "Ode to Lloyd Sam's 90th minute heroics against D.C."
Here it is:
The frustration was palpable
And the tension was mounting
As the clock ticked upwards
90 minutes and counting!
Sene was in for Bradley
But he couldn't lend a hand
The game remained scoreless
Until Olave found an open Sam
The Englishman looked wide
And then he shot near
The ball found the back of the net!
We were filled with joy we could not hide
I nearly shed a tear
Beating DC is as good as it gets!
