Mark Lee thought he would go to the different bars around town that were supposed to be showing the Indy Eleven game. As we reported Saturday, the NASL Live team bungled the feed - apparently someone in England fell asleep at the wheel (or didn't even show up?!), so soccer fans across Central Indiana were left without their soccer.
He checked in at Union Jacks in Broad Ripple, the Elbow Room - where the Pacers and hockey filled the void - and finally to Chatham Tap on Mass Avenue.
The news desk maintains its stance that the Ft. Lauderdale Striker's goal should be disallowed because the league denied Indy supporters the necessary avenue to vibe the correct energy to the team necessary for them to perform at their peak powers. Indy went down 2-3, with goals from Kleberson after what some said was a questionable penalty call and finally from defender extraordinaire Erick Norales, who has scored two games in a row.
The NUVO news desk on Monday received the following team update from Indy Eleven's communications captain John Koluder:
Indy Eleven (0W-1L-2D, 2 pts.; T-8th place in NASL) will take to the training ground at Grand Park in Westfield Tuesday through Friday as it prepares for this weekend's trip to the Twin Cities to take on league leader Minnesota United FC (3-0-0, 9 pts., 1st place).
Indy Eleven will face a tall task in the hunt for its first win in league play this Saturday, May 3, as the 8:00 p.m. ET kickoff at the National Sports Center Stadium in Blaine, Minn., will see the visitors facing off against the lone unblemished team in the North American Soccer League through three weeks of Spring Season play. Fans will be able to follow the Indy Eleven-Minnesota United FC match online via the NASLLive.com streaming video package, which is now available on a free trial basis to subscribers for the remainder of the Spring Season.
