Three important playoff games today in two countries:
- MLS Cup 2008: Columbus vs. New York; 12:30 pm ABC
- Mexican league playoffs: Tecos vs Toluca, 2 pm Azteca America
- Mexican league playoffs: Santos vs San Luis, 4 pm Azteca America
The MLS Cup should be interesting as upstart and huge underdog New York will try to knock off the best team in MLS in the Columbus Crew. New York has only allowed one goal in the playoffs while Columbus has been impressive in picking apart Kansas City and overcoming a defecit against Chicago.
Meanwhile, the second playoff game pits an American against a fellow American as Edgar Castillo's Santos side hosts Michael Orozco's San Luis team. San Luis finished with the best record in the regular season but Santos won the title and will be out to try and defend that. And, of course, Santos now have Cuauhtemoc Blanco.
