Alright! Nice Goals! Let see how ELS prepares for the next round of concacaf. Hope there is some sort of TV deal to see all the games for the next round. GO ELS!

12,000 for a weeknight friendly isn;t bad. Interesting that RFK opened the upper deck for this.

No spacing or punctuation in the UserID, but same highway and exit.

I was very disappointed with Bolivia's output. Their #10 would just stand on the ball and wait for the entire population of San Miguel to show up and take the ball off of him. I expected more from them, but that shows you what I know.

That said, I was very pleased with Jaime's 20 minutes with his team down a man. He was definitely the classiest player out there, but you could tell his was playing like he was Jason Statham in Crank (you have 20 minutes to live, what are you going to do with it).

It was a fun time and two great goals.

My initials were RK. Sneaky, huh?

FYI, if you are having trouble, I had to go to another blog (sports bog) and there was a link at the bottom that let me log in and choose an alias.

Not a bad video - nice work!

Agree with Joe Doc (a/k/a joedoc1 :)) - step up to the ball, lads!

I would have made those saves.

Oh crap! I can't use "Hope Solo."

(For the record, I only posed as her once, and it was last year after the WWC).

Yeah, something's up. I guess we all have to deal with this appended 1s for the rest of time.

Those video editing skills really are nice. I dig the slow-mo and creative use of the stadium screen. His skills are almost as nice as Eliseo's goal.

By the way... I used to post as "Amanda" but they would only give me "Amanda4" and that was too boring so I've switched to this very creative User ID.

Way to go Eliseo!

Yikes the Bolivians were doing some serious ball-watching on the second goal.

We should give that Quintonilla guy a look. :)

I should have gone ahead and arranged tickets for my Bolivian and Salvadorean friends to go to this game together. Unfortunately, neither family is all that into National Team soccer to justify the ticket prices for Premium Level seating.

OK, I admit it: I'm posting just to see if WaPo would allow me to sign as "Stevan in Gaithersburg" now.

It appears the answer is "no."
