Soccer, at it's finest, is a simple game. It always has been and it always will be. Score more goals than your opposition. Pretty simple.
And for teams that are lower on the pyramid in the United States they also fight for recognition. And for a team like Harpo's FC, they have fought that for years. They were known for years as the BullShitPubTeam, struggling for recognition.
But that is starting to change. After their magical US Open Cup run from last year where they lost a heart breaker to USL side Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC and consistently play good soccer, they are no longer the "little team that could."
They are the hunted.
And when they take the pitch tonight in the first round of the US Open Cup, believe me, they will find an opponent in Albuquerque Sol FC who will be after them.
