The playoffs are starting, get excited

We're getting close to kickoff between Chicago and Houston. Like, really, really close.

The opening whistle will blow, and the 2012 edition of the MLS Cup Playoffs will be off and running. 

With everything else going on, it'll be really nice to actually, you know, watch the matches play out. 

Not like we needed any extra help getting hype, but the NBC Sports Network just dropped the spot below for good measure. Enjoy.
