THE EXPERIMENT FAILED
The announced crowd was 15,814, but don’t be fooled. Though school buses lined the streets by Red Bull Arena like a kindergarten trip to the petting zoo, the empty seats certainly did not reflect the claim. In fact, the only thing reflecting on those seats was the burning sun.
Chris Heck joined Seeing Red! a few weeks back and discussed his reservations about this midday game – while fully taking credit (blame?) for the “experiment.”
From the first minute on, the play was monotonous, the players were meandering and the crowd (around 6-8k actually in attendance, tops) suffered in 101 degree heat that would surely have been hot enough to boil an egg.
Experiment failed. Never again.
