Columbus Crew coach Robert Warzycha needed only two sentences to explain how his team defeated the Dynamo on Saturday.

"We possessed the ball fairly well in the first half and scored a nice goal. We limited Houston to a couple of set pieces - they live and die by the set piece - so we did not give up ones in dangerous spots."

It's easy to game plan and defeat a team when you can so quickly identify the key to their entire offense and exploit a defense that's prone to mistakes.

More telling than anything could be the fact that it only took 42 words...and we all know that 42 is the answer to life, the universe and everything. Apparently the question, which has long evaded humanity, is "How many words it takes to explain how to defeat the 2011 Houston Dynamo?".

So there you go, quality inadvertent problem solving from the Crew' head coach.
