Orlando, Florida vs. Columbus Crew SC

Tonight is a perfect example of a broken game. Something drives me nuts about MLS as a competition. It's going to be sticky down in Orlando today. Mid-80s, humid. It's also going to be played on an artificial surface in a stadium designed for the gridiron.

Orlando will soon (?) be in their new stadium, which at one point, allegedly, was going to be filled with natural grass. By "soon," I think the plan is to have the much-delayed stadium done for the start of the 2017 season. Which is great! Still doesn't solve the heat problem, but it solves a few of the other issues.

Till then, however. Tonight's game isn't about the players on the field as it is everything else around it. Here is a visual representation of what people will be watching tonight [huummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm]:
