Mother? Not Mother?
On this Mother's Day evening, let's start with the women......
*The Washington Freedom opened defense of its W-League title with a 3-1 victory at Long Island.
*Player ratings from the USA's 6-0 romp over Canada on Saturday at RFK: Solo 6; Chalupny 7, Rampone 7, Markgraf 7, Mitts 8; O'Reilly 6, Boxx 7, Lloyd 8, Tarpley 7; Kai 9, Wambach 7. Subs: Osborne 7, Rodriguez 6, Hucles 6.
As for the guys.....
*Former Howard University coach Keith Tucker, who had been guiding Bermuda for several months, left the national team and was replaced by an assistant with D.C. connections, Kenny Thompson. The move comes just a month before a World Cup second-round qualifying series against T&T. Thompson did graduate work at Howard and played for a D.C. amateur club. The status of Bermuda assistant Keith Tabatznik, the former Georgetown coach, remains unclear.
*The English Premiership came to a dramatic close today with Manchester United clinching the title on the strength of a 2-0 victory at Wigan, Fulham completing its heroic finish by winning at Portsmouth, 1-0, to stay up, and Reading going down despite a 4-0 victory at relegated Derby.
*ESPN/ABC has finalized coverage plans for the European Championship. All 31 matches will be shown live -- 7 on ESPN, 17 on ESPN2, 5 on ESPN Classic and two, including the June 29 final in Vienna, on ABC. High definition is available for all games except ESPN Classic. Coverage of the final will be preceded on ABC by Beckham and the Galaxy against D.C. United at RFK. For the complete schedule, click here.
Coming Monday morning, our weekly look at The Good, The Bad and The Coyote Ugly from MLS weekend.
