It's still morning in the Mountain and Pacific time zones, so I get a pass, right? ;-)
*In the wake of last Wednesday's monsoon at Estadio RFK, D.C. United has proposed playing the make-up match with Houston on July 23, the day before the All-Star Game in Toronto. It would make a lot of sense: The teams are set to face each other four days earlier at RFK in a SuperLiga group match, so the Dynamo could stick around and save on transportation costs. As for a few potential D.C. and Houston players competing in a serious game the day before the always grueling All-Star Game...oh, never mind. The other rescheduling options are in early September before each side begins Champions League play. With those fixtures in mind, the teams and MLS will wait until after Wednesday's CL draw before ironing out the details of the make-up match.
*While the USA was holding Argentina to a 0-0 tie before more than 78,000 at Giants Stadium, bitter rival Mexico earned a 4-0 victory over Peru in front of 33,000-plus at Soldier Field.
*If you thought DCU's 2-1 victory over Chicago on Saturday night was wild (nine yellows, three reds, an added-time game-winner), check out the scoring summary for Sunday's reserve division match between the clubs:
CHI - Andy Herron 2'
CHI - Andy Herron (PK) 10'
CHI - Calen Carr 49'
DC - Franco Niell 52'
DC - Ryan Cordeiro 61'
DC - Rod Dyachenko 69'
DC - Marc Burch 72'
CHI - Brad North 79'
DC - Quavas Kirk 81'
*Congrats to Real Maryland defender Matthew Eby and his wife, who gave birth to their second child. To read my April 19 profile of Eby, who is deaf, click here. DCU's Fred is expected to become a father for the first time today.
Back later with the Good, Bad and Coyote Ugly from this past week's MLS action.....
