UnitedCast: Soggy Soccer for Home Opener?

The season could get off to a damp and dismal start -- at least as far as the weather is concerned. Showers are possible during the game, especially in the 2nd half (though I know some of you consider soggy to be perfect soccer weather). A thunderstorm can't be ruled out, either. Dress appropriately -- both for the potential of rain and for cool temperatures mainly in the low 50s and fairly steady through the game.

If it is raining, there must be a DC United match that day. I think my poncho is finally dry from last season. Vamos United! And thanks for this service Gang!!!!

Looks like chance of rain during the game is good, but is there a chance we could escape the tailgate with only a few passing showers at least?

THANKS for doing this again this season. You guys were money last year!

With all of the crazy weather at DCU games recently, this feature really comes in handy. I'll be there tomorrow night with my DCU rain coat...you are right - as long as you come prepared for the elements, rain can be a lot of fun...(not the case when you show up in shorts and a cold front with rain moves in at the last minute!)

I agree, you can still have fun at most sporting events if you are prepared for the weather.
