Dictionary.com defines 'grit' as courage and resolve; strength of character and that's exactly what New York City FC was Wednesday night as we played our cross town rivals New Jersey Red Bulls. 5 yellow cards awarded, 2 direct reds, playing with 2 men down and STILL NYCFC found a way to tie the match. Oh and a surprise appearance by the Blue Man Group? Over 30K in attendance. It was a pretty special night. We discuss this plus all your questions with guests Roddy Russell and Keira Mun Smith.
