There’s a thing you learn when you watch the Chicago Fire enough. You learn that, no matter how good things are going, something bad is always going to happen. So I knew that the Fire were going to give up a tying goal in Saturday’s match against New England, because they aren’t allowed to win matches.
Draws or losses, that’s how they roll.
So when the Fire were called for a foul with five minutes to play and New England got a penalty kick, I didn’t even bat an eye. I knew it was coming.
What I didn’t know was coming was this.
Is Sean Johnson better than Tim Howard? Probably! Okay, he’s not, but he may have a better chance of being on the 2018 World Cup roster than Howard does, so he has that going for him.
Oh, and the Fire won. First win in nearly two months.
