Maybe the New York Red Bulls aren’t quite as good as they played the first sixty minutes on Saturday. Maybe the Crew decided to finally show up in the sixtieth minute to give New York a game after falling behind by three. It’s also possible the Red Bulls packed it in at the end of the game. Yes, the Red Bulls won the game in Columbus, but the Crew showed just how inconsistent RBNY can be.

Red Bulls Report 3/28

The New York Red Bulls finally found their winning ways this week with a 4-1 victory in the home opener. The Red Bulls managed just one goal in their first two matches, but piled on four in their return to Red Bull Arena on Sunday against the West-leading Colorado Rapids. The win featured great possession time and defensive physicality by New York, as well as a couple timely saves by the rookie keeper from Fordham and man of the match Ryan Meara. Thierry Henry scored two goals and added a helper, while Kenny Cooper tallied two goals of his own.

Ryan Meara: A Local Product

For several years, Ryan Meara (MARE-uh) never seemed to make much of an effort to correct people when they mispronounced his name. He let his play on the soccer pitch do the talking for him. What the six foot five goalkeeper may lack in off field assertiveness, he more than makes up for with numerous jaw dropping saves and a natural ability to lead on the pitch. The 2011 Atlantic Ten Defensive Player of the Year makes his debut as the starting keeper for the New York Red Bulls when RBNY opens its season on the road against FC Dallas on Sunday afternoon.

Sports are a bizarre enterprise filled with unlucky moments, extraordinary plays, and odd bounces. These sorts of things happen from time to time and are accepted as “part of the game.” Now having been following the Nets and Jets for as long as I’ve lived, I have obviously seen my fair share of bizarre plays. From Devin Harris catching, dribbling, bobbling and releasing a half-court game winner in under 1.8 seconds to offensive lineman Jumbo Elliot catching a game-tying touchdown pass in the “Monday Night Miracle.”

Red Bulls Recognize 9/11

Harrison-  As a full moon rested brightly above the rim of Red Bull Arena, thousands of American flags waved in unison throughout the stands. In remembrance of the September 11th terrorist attacks of ten years ago, the New York Red Bulls handed out the flags to every fan that entered the stadium, and directed them to wave the flags between the ninth and twelfth minutes of the game. To complete the patriotic scene, a choir of diehards bellowed an impromptu rendition of God Bless America.
