I think it's absolutely pathetic the game will not be broadcasted on TV.

Well, it shows up on Direct Kick on DirecTV.....hoping I am getting a Chicago feed cause I can't make it to Lake RFK tonight.

Hi Steve,
Is there any truth to the rumor that Mayor Fenty is travelling because he's being considered for an ambassador appointment? This would result in a new Mayor and possibly a more favorable dynamic for a stadium in DC?
Best,
David
PS - this internet nut started the rumor. But Fenty does seem to be making strange unannounced trips all of a sudden, even taking him away for the start of the Cherry Blossom Festival that he was supposed to kick-off.....

Will someone please tell DC United Coach 'Nana' to call NIkolai at 703-914-5605. The boys are planning on joining him tonight!

sobugged1-

Let me know if you find a feed. I am desperately trying to find a stream for the game. Thanks.

Fenty as Ambassador. Hmmm...that is a great rumor.

Maybe Barry is ready for a comeback to his comeback!

Barry is getting read for a stretch of time for tax evasion...As for Fenty -- maybe he is trying to locate that Nigerian prince who took his money. Seriously, though. es pretty entrenched as Mayor. At least until there a Congress seat to run for...

ditto on the feed...

I subscribe to Direct Kick through Comcast but the channel that the game is supposed to be on isn't working. Been on the phone with them all morning!

These are the closest things I could find. Nothing's listed as of right now except Direct Kick, but they may have a stream up before the game.

I just dropped 5 bucks on the MLS feed. Well worth it.

Posted by: notafembot | March 28, 2009 4:52 PM | Report abuse

I've paid the $20 bucks for the season pass to MLSlive.com the past two years and been pretty happy. Even if it's not perfect (I've had a few games blacked out), it's certainly worth the $20 for convenience alone. It beats spending hours searching for bootleg streams that aren't reliable. Plus, I'm sure every few dollars helps MLS out.
