MLS only just recently entered its 20s, and thanks to the glories of modernity we can look back on its first ever MLS match and marvel. Phil Schoen on the call, Eric Wynalda on the goal, the clock on the countdown (whywhywhy). All here.
It helps every once and again to remind yourself from whence the league had to come in this country, notably in terms of its aesthetic. Look at those Clash unis. Bad.
The other thing I’d forgotten? Jeff Agoos got nutmegged into the fourth century en route to giving up the first goal in MLS history. You’ll always have that glory, Jeff.
