Buffon to D.C.??

Replay ordered for the Chicago series??

Posted by: Rocko | November 5, 2007 3:14 PM | Report abuse

maybe villareal is letting riquelme come to dc on a free transfer, and roman is going to donate his salary to help build the stadium!

Posted by: zzz | November 5, 2007 3:16 PM | Report abuse

On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being a foreign signing, which it is not)...

this is a 7.

ZZZZzzzz...I'm betting Emilio as MVP

Posted by: Logan Circle | November 5, 2007 3:17 PM | Report abuse

how about a foreign re-signing?

Posted by: delantero | November 5, 2007 3:18 PM | Report abuse

so it's an MLS signing? a trade?

a foreign non-signing?

Bye Bye Jaime? Retirement?

Posted by: jgildea | November 5, 2007 3:18 PM | Report abuse

Kevin Payne quit? (I would rate that a 9 or 10 though)

Tom Sohen fired, Arena back as coach?

Posted by: Rocko | November 5, 2007 3:18 PM | Report abuse

so... no stadium news, soehn not fired, not a shirt sponsor... hmmmm????

Posted by: smt39 | November 5, 2007 3:19 PM | Report abuse

Okay, so no Brujita...perhaps contract- (or no-contract-) related info re: Moreno and/or Gomito...

...ain't speculation grand? ;-)

They finally struck that big money deal for Boswell?

Boswell to Marseille.

Posted by: RK | November 5, 2007 3:28 PM | Report abuse

Goff's year-end bonus is predicated on blog hits and the tally stops today at 3:30 so wanted to get a few more clicks in.

Stadium Deal ?

Posted by: emanon | November 5, 2007 3:30 PM | Report abuse

In an effort to replace Moreno, DC United is offering me a contract? 'Bout time.

Posted by: Matt Brock | November 5, 2007 3:31 PM | Report abuse

Boswell saved 15% on his car insurance by switching to GEICO?

Wait, that can't be it, he already posted that on his MySpace, personal website , and an ad space he purchased on the op-ed page of the Post.

In a "Back to Basics" move, they re-signed best hair styles of the past. They would have to include Mario Gori, El Diablo, David Vaudril, Kpene (but only if he grows that rediculus doo from earlier in the year), who am I missing?

why would a "foreign signing" be the best option on a scale? could not it also be a 1 -- if it turns out like Denilson at FCD did?

Citing instability in the local newspaper business, Steven Goff has signed a short-term contract with the Dubai Tribune. Details were not disclosed, but under the terms of his contract, it is expected that he will be able to retire comfortably and afford to send Insider Jr. to a private university. The Washington Post did not comment on whether he was offered a Designated Reporter position (aka the Kornheiser Rule).

furiayanqui has it right, better yet it's when the news has the weather guy on in the first 5 minutes to tell you what the weather was today (like you don't already know) and to stay tuned to find out about the forecast for the rest of the week.
