Minnesota United: Loons Win Edition

New, comments
MLS: Real Salt Lake at Minnesota United FC Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

LOONS WIN! LOONS WIN! LOONS WIN! You’ll want to head over to Hockey Wilderness’ sister-site E Pluribus Loonum, but LOONS WIN! A 4-2 victory and it never looked that close (ok other than the 12 minutes or so when Real Salt Lake led, but still!

LOONS WIN!

If you look carefully, you can see me face palming behind the goal after the fourth minute goal by Luke Mulholland. I’m the guy in white in the first row.

In any case.

LOONS WIN (for an explanation of why Wonderwall)
