Unless you are a die-hard New York Red Bulls fan or a San Jose Earthquakes fan, chances are you missed their game last Saturday night, which means you probably didn't see Arturo Alvarez draw what wound up being the match-winning penalty converted by Ryan Johnson.

The play looked every bit like a dive, and one of the weaker dives in MLS in recent memory, but I will let you, the SBI readers, vote on whether you agree.

What's my take? After watching the full broadcast replay repeatedly, it is a pretty clear dive, with Alvarez taking a touch and a step before an invisible sniper shot him in the left leg.
