I haven't been to an MLS match before. I'll be traveling back to school after these Sunday matches. So I'm wondering how long does an MLS match take from the players walking onto the field from the locker room to the final whistle? I know 45 minute halves and a 15 minute half time. So around 2 hours?
Usually around 95 minutes of actual playing time. 15 minute half-time. I'm not sure how long it takes to sing the national anthem, 2 minutes? If you're at Red Bull Arena you'll probably have to wait for some pointless eXTReMe SpOrTZzZ STuNT like a sky diver flying in. That's about it.

You guys are real dicks. No one is going to come clean about the secret extra "half" that MLS sneaks in?

Come on Midas. You don't talk about the Playboy Playmates Bikini Soccer(TM) half! If too many people know about it they'll have to stop it to keep up the MLS family freindly image.
