Ben Olsen as Rambo
Just about everything soccer-wise on Saturday was bad for D.C. United. Early pressure was not rewarded, FC Dallas scored three times, United's only score came on an own goal, the team's captain -- Carey Talley -- came down hard on his ribs and seemed to be spitting up a strange reddish-brown substance, and Dallas got a late goal from Jeff Cunningham, who continues to close in on Jaime Moreno's all-time mark. Bad, bad, bad, bad, bad.
The signs, though, were good. This was, of course, the home debut for interim coach Ben Olsen, who remains a massive favorite among the home fans. And so, among the tifo from the crowd: Olsen as Rambo, and Olsen with RFK's now-famous raccoon. Yay, supporters. You did good.
