DCU-Chicago, the Aftermath

A few hours' sleep, and then back to O'Hare for a flight to New Jersey and the USA-Argentina match Sunday evening. So I'll have to make this quick.

An evening that began with a tornado alert, ends with.....

United winning a road match, shorthanded no less.
United getting out of last place.
Luciano Emilio regaining hero status.
Marcelo Gallardo, Bryan Namoff and mild-mannered Brandon Prideaux seeing red.
Nine yellow cards.
Jon Busch making several sensational saves, but failing his last test.

Those twisters sure stirred up something, didn't they?

Here is my game report with quotes.

For video highlights, go to mlsnet.com (no link, I'm tired).

PLAYER RATINGS

Wells 5; Namoff 5, Peralta 5, McTavish 5, Martinez 6; Quaranta 6, Simms 6, Gallardo 5, Fred 4; Moreno 7, Emilio 8. Subs: Burch 6, Dyachenko 4, Cordeiro 6.

I'll rejoin you Sunday afternoon from the Swamps of Jersey.
