Champions' Cup Begins
Okay, so maybe it's cold and windy and icy and slushy and snowy here in the mid-Atlantic today, but down in Trinidad, it's in the mid-80s with a chance of thunderstorm. Why do we care? Because the Champions' Cup, that international tournament involving D.C. United, actually got under way last night in the Caribbean -- and there was a huge surprise.
W Connection upset Chivas of Guadalajara, 2-1, on two late goals after Dubya's star goalkeeper was sent off with a red card in the first half. Now the Dubs must go to Mexico in two weeks and get a tie (Um, I don't like their chances). The winner of the series gets DCU or Olimpia in the semifinals.
Here's the full match report from the Dub perspective...
The weather is also decent in Bradenton -- 73 and partly cloudy -- where United is playing New York in a preseason matchup. I'll pass along the details sometime after the noon hour.
