Sporting Kansas City was thrilled to get a point on the road Wednesday night.
How happy where they to tie 0-0 at Portland?
Matt Besler quoted the movie “Happy Gilmore” when talking with reporters.
“This is always a very difficult place to play. It was a hard-fought draw,” Besler said, before he went into Shooter McGavin mode. “I tell you the real winner today is the city of Portland. Every time we come here it gets harder to leave. I bet you guys put something in the water.”
