Highlights: NYC 5, Colorado 1

Rain at Yankee Stadium couldn't drown our spirits, as NYCFC put up its best margin of victory ever against one of the best teams in the league, the Colorado Rapids. And Frank Lampard scored the first hat trick in NYCFC history!

Amazing match from our Pigeons. Colorado came in to this game with 38 points, more than any team in the Eastern and second in the Western only to FC Dallas at 41, but having three games in hand over the Texans. To beat this team is an amazing accomplishment, much less to destroy them, much less to destroy them with David Villa sitting out a suspension. Outstanding.

The only glimmer of gloom I can muster is that our Boys in Blue couldn't quite close it out, surrendering the clean sheet in the final stoppage time minutes. Stumbling in front of the finish line has been a consistent problem going back to last season, although it's perhaps a bit more excusable in this circumstance.

Today more than ever before, I'm singing:
Blue Skies,
Smiling at me,
Nothing but Blue Skies
Do I see!
