Love is Blind by The Lalas Brothers

Ahead of the first match of the 2012 MLS Cup Playoffs tonight, editor in chief Greg Lalas snagged a special guest to break down the clash between Chicago and Houston tonight on ESPN2

Yep, the other Lalas jumped on a Google+ Hangout to talk tonight's match, and he brought props. Watch the video below to find out what Alexi is wearing for a costume on the broadcast tonight. 

Greg's not done hanging out today, either. You can catch him this afternoon, rapping with fans before #CHIvHOU officially kicks off. A man of the people, that guy.
