Box Seats: September 12, 2010 - September 18, 2010

DC United vs. LA Galaxy Preview

By Jeff Maurer It's a little depressing to find out that you're another team's rock bottom. Toronto FC had been on a downward spiral for a while, but when they woke up Sunday morning and rolled over to see DC...

Let's be honest, the Texans shouldn't even exist

Redskins week 2 preview: Houston Texans

By Evan Bliss Attention and excitement shifts from last week’s final-play victory over division nemesis Dallas to that other team in Texas, the Texans. Didn’t overthink the whole “team-naming thing” I suppose. Oddly enough, the Skins have quite a bit...

Maryland-West Virginia: The season's tone will be set

By Ryan Broadwater Saturday’s game against the Mountaineers of West Virginia is Maryland’s first chance to truly come out of its shell. It’s not a “be all, end all” game the Terps have to win for their season to be...

Do Streaks Really Matter?

By Stephen L. Carter A lot of sportswriters this week have been analyzing the “implications” of the fact that the Redskins’ opponent Sunday, the Houston Texans, last weekend broke a six-game losing streak against the Colts, beating Indy for only...

A timely message about female sports fans

Fw: DC United vs. Toronto FC Player Rankings
