Playoffs are a funny thing. In American sports, playoffs separate the weak from the strong. The contenders from the pretenders. Yet somehow, they also have a way of allowing the underdog to rise to the occasion and steal the spotlight time and time again. Miami FC could have played their very last game and the North American Soccer League modern record for goals, wins, points, and differential could not have saved them.
What. A. Ride. For those of you who have followed Miami FC’s journey with us, we can’t thank you enough. For those of you who are just seeing this for the first time, welcome to the club! We’ve had some real highs and lows together throughout the year. Poku beating Atlanta, 7-0 thrashing of the Deltas for the spring title, and Cincinnati coming to town and stealing the Open Cup Semi-Final from us have all led to this moment.
