Open All Night: Red Bull Fans Need Not Apply

It's official. Red Bull matches not broadcast on TV outlets available to the masses -- as opposed to HD channels which should not be named (hint: mogul/doofus owned and operated) -- result in crushing late-game meltdowns. Unlike Saturday's draw with RSL, the Red Bull paid dearly Tuesday night, dropping a 3-1 decision to the Galaxy in LA, thus prematurely ending their participation in the US Open Cup.

But, while the opportunity to secure the storied domestic cup has eluded the Red Bull for another year, there was some good news, and his name is Juan Pablo Angel. The Colombian striker by way of River Plate and Aston Villa entered the match in the 62nd minute and managed six shots on goal, including a cracking free-kick which found net in OT for the lone Red Bull tally. Unfortunately, Landon Donovan also made a cameo appearance, sparking the Galaxy to the 3-1 victory.
