Morning Kickaround

*A midweek crowd of 16,000 (though many got in for free), five goals in the first half, a goal by a former local college hero, a virtuoso performance by not-an-all-star Schelotto, the equalizer by a returning USA international, ESPN instead of ESPN2, what more could you ask for from Columbus's 3-3 tie with Kansas City?

"I think people saw an entertaining game," Crew boss Sigi Schmid said. "I don't think ESPN can complain about that. They saw that our team can score goals and can be explosive. It was a good game for the fans, an exciting game."

*Man U closing in on Dimitar Berbatov?

*Links to my DCU story and Olympic women/men story.

*Tomorrow's DCU-Houston match can be seen locally on Comcast SportsNet and nationally on Telefutura, but Tuesday's makeup game between the teams at RFK will not have any standard TV coverage in the Washington area.

*Kansas City has moved its Sept. 13 home game with David Beckham and the Galaxy from 10,000-seat CommunityAmerica Ballpark to its former home, vast Arrowhead Stadium.

*USA surgeon Damion Valletta, on Abby Wambach: "She's sustained a very significant injury to her bone. It can sometimes take a year to return a professional player to her previous level of activity, but the expectation is that we will have an aggressive rehab program and progress her weight-bearing rapidly to minimize her time lost for competition."
