    Going into the play-off, I learned, team with the momentum usually goes all the way. The only team that has momentum now is NYRB, but in the other direction, that is.

    I'd have to agree with Gus, I was hoping for the RB's to win this match not lose it after dominating the game. I think Hans Baca time with NY is going to be very short lived.
