Saturday in the Park

*Read about DCU iron man Clyde Simms.

*Who needs a new stadium when you have the magic of Rice-Eccles? Real Salt Lake remained perfect on its concrete surface with a 2-0 victory over fading Colorado. Video highlights of Fabian Espindola's two goals are here.

*In its final game before the U.S. Open Cup final at DCU on Wednesday, the USL1 Charleston Battery played a 0-0 tie with first-place Puerto Rico.

*A USL2 Crystal Palace USA player will get a look from the mothership in London.

*The Maryland Terrapins opened its season in dramatic fashion, scoring the equalizer in the final minute and then winning in overtime, 2-1, over UCLA before 3,214 at Home Depot Center. Meantime, at the D.C. College Cup, GW and George Mason played to a 1-1 tie and American thumped Howard, 5-0.

I think it was..........

Dang, I missed a coouple I wanted to see last night. Notably the Terps. Stupid family movie night!!!!
Oh well, I get Jimmy Buffet tonite. Then USOC Wed. Should be a great next few days.
Would like to see some minutes vs Red BullsXXX for a few of the injured/returning starters. They need to get back with the program.
Should be interesting to see if RSL has a homefield advantage next year.

Nice article on Simms. Interesting that he says the games seem shorter the more he plays. Hejduk-like fitness level. Does he have a nickname yet? Simmer? Simmsy? Clyde-o?

nine seasons in USL2 before he gets a look in the CCC? What's wrong with the scouting in North America?
