United, MLS Notes

This afternoon's update has a health theme.....

*Santino Quaranta does not plan to attend D.C. United practice tomorrow, the day before the match against Toronto at RFK. He has good reason: His wife, Petrina, is scheduled to give birth to their second child. He swears he will be at RFK on Saturday night.

*United players are struttin' for a good cause tonight.

*An update on the condition of Marcia Williams, wife of Real Salt Lake veteran Andy Williams.

*The story behind the teenager who kicked out the first ball at the Wizards-United match:

Prayers to the Williams family, good luck to young Jimenez, well done United runway walkers (will there be a Kevin Payne sighting in Lost Boys gear?) and best wishes to Tino and Mrs. Tino.

@Kev29, it's your turn for kids!

Also, fans of southern rock, mourn:

"@Kev29, it's your turn for kids!"

Ha! Not yet my friend!

I am going to support the Namoff's and help raise money for the LLS tonight though!

Best wishes to Tino and Petrina.

Marcia Williams could not be at a better place. Fred Hutch is where I'd go if I needed a bone marrow transplant.

For Ean Evans:

Can't imagine strutting their stuff is good for ankles or hamstrings. But to the young guys like Wallace, after 2 90 minute matches and one more to come . . .more power to them . . . just keep scoring.

By which I meant to imply no religious overtones, undertones, or ringtones, merely to quote my favorite LS song.

From the corrections department: The video above is from the original lineup of Skynyrd, with original Bass player Leon Wilkinson (RIP).

Which doesn't take away from our man Ean (RIP), who I've never heard of, but hereby salute....


And congrats to the SQ's...

Well, it was the spirit of the song, even if it was the original line-up. And I mean to imply no Holy Spirit, Teen Spirit, nor Alcoholic Spirit - although what's Lynyrd Skynyrd without a fifth of Jack Daniels.

Did someone say "spirit"?!

"Begin the day with a friendly voice
A companion unobtrusive
Plays that song that's so elusive
And the magic music makes your morning mood..."

Mr Goff,
Please never ever again start a blog post with the talk of "health issues", then immediately mention Santino Quaranta in bold lettering.

My weak heart thanks you.

Nice story on the Wiz kid.

I bet Tino's wife is giving birth right now!Awesome!
I hope all that goes well and he comes rockin and rollin into RFK tomorrow. Goals from #25 and #7 would be a dream come true.

It's only a matter of time before someone Twitters (twits? tweets?) their delivery room experiences.

Posted by: joedoc1 | May 8, 2009 9:18 AM | Report abuse

So was there no video available of that kid's first kick so that the news report could show us?

jodeoc1 what I'm worried about is the dawn of live streaming video from people I-PHones...

West Ham United(H) VS Liverpool

Willhill 6.00 3.40 1.50
6.00 4.00 1.53

In those recent matches, Liverpool were playing pretty well, for they need to get 1st position in the league. What's more, with Gerrard's recovery, Liverpool can get 3 points in this matches without much effort.

West Ham need to save their 7th position, but they scored only one goal in the recent matches verses those four top teams.
