The MISL Finals will be played in Milwaukee next Saturday, and yippie-skippy, the Blast will be one of the two teams.
What was more exciting is that LaRaze de Monterrey won the other semi series against the Detroit Ignition. Monterrey won Game 1 last week at Arena Monterrey, but lost Game 2 in Detroit to set up the (Side note - do you think I have feelings about this?) stupid, moronic, dopey, childish Game 3, which is a "first team to score" format.
After returning home after the disappointing Wave game, I hit the internet to see who the Blast would be playing in the MISL Finals next Saturday. Eventually it was learned that Byron Alvarez hit the series winner, and the Mexican side had punched their ticket to Milwaukee.
So Saturday afternoon, warm up by stopping by at Riviera Maya or the Oaxaca Grill for lunch, have a Tecate or Dos Equis, stop back at home for your noise makers, and get to the US Cellular Arena for the 6:00 PM start.
If Milwaukee's sizable Latin contingent makes it to the game, the atmosphere should be electric.
