We're almost three months into the 2022 MLS season, affording us enough time to showcase some of the most exciting new stadium food options after collecting them from the Bible of arena grub, @FootyScran.

It's the best account around to make you both incredibly hungry and excited for Saturday, although the reaction to MLS food usually justifiably ranges from "that looks delicious" to "why the hell are they paying $25 for chicken over there?"

16 Remates, 11 Tiros De Esquina, 75% De Posesión, 0 Campeones Cups: La Noche De Perros Del Cruz Azul

El camino fácil sería decir que el Cruz Azul volvió a cruzazulearla y llenar de memes este post. Pero para qué. La realidad es que La Máquina perdió la Campeones Cup ante Columbus Crew, monarca de la MLS, por una mezcla de desafortunados eventos y por no saber cómo convertir su abismal dominio del balón en una victoria.
