MY TWO CENTS
Ode to City dropping more points at home
Soccer fan Will Smith of Brooklyn, N.Y., is at it again, penning an ode to New York City's 2-2 draw with Orlando City as the team lost a two-goal lead in the second half.

The City fans were ready
Surely last week was an aberration
Or maybe the Red Bull beat-down never happened
Was it just their imagination?
Surely, they would be ready for Orlando
And bounce back victoriously
Or so it seemed late in game
Up 2-0 with Pirlo's locks flowing gloriously
Alas, David Villa missed a penalty kick
And the Lions pulled one back
The pressure was spreading the City "D" thin
The it happened; all the hipster fans looked sick
Orlando tied it when Pirlo failed, on defense, to track
City is always good for a few laughs, if not a win
