Another draw. Who was it that said a tie is like kissing your sister? At the rate the Union have been going, we’ll be making out with our sister by the end of the year. Not a pretty thought. Please Union, finish some chances to save us from our sisters! Enough with this analogy. Due to the almost comical results of the Union’s play recently, I thought limericks might be in order for the recap. Though they might not technically be limericks, they are close, which I think seems to be the team's management’s governing philosophy as well - "It’s not quite professional quality, but it’s close!" On with the recap ...

This game ended up as a tie
Both offenses left high and dry
For the goals would not come
We’re left feeling ho-hum
And just one point was gained by and by

Some crosses and headers were close
The ball missed the net by a nose
The U had possession
But what causes depression
Was the finishing that just looked gross

Adu got minutes this game
And ‘ppenot as striker was named
But alas was no score
This game was a bore
The name of the U’s getting shamed

What can be learned from this match
What meaning can there be attached
How ’bout some forwards
Who can kick the ball towards
The net, there our foes to dispatch
