MLSnet is listing TeleFutura coverage for the Toronto game at 8pm. My TiVo schedule doesn't reflect that, but that doesn't mean anything.

Anyone know how bad the orange line is, with the incident at Potomac Ave?

Its amazing that RSL has all this (stadium, airline sponsor, etc) and we can't even get a stadium.

This game is huge tonight! After this it's off to away games at Seattle and Colorado.

We need to start this week off well with a total game.

All of the emergency equipment seems to be gone from the station.

delantero:

I fully agree. Tonight's a big one. Even with our improved road play and ability to grind out results, 6 of 7 is going to be tough. There are some particularly tough road games in there, too: Houston, Seattle, Colorado (we always struggle there). Seattle and Toronto are on turf. Time to grab the points while we can.

Chicago's going to be tough tonight. They've lost 2 straight, and were pretty unfortunate to lose their last one to Houston (1-0 in a game they dominated, despite playing without Blanco and against MLS's hottest team). However, I have some confidence that it will just be a matter of finishing our chances. The Fire will have a makeshift back four, so we should create plenty; it's just a matter of putting them away rather than finding ourselves with a 0 on the board after an hour has gone by. Scoring first and early tonight will be more important than usual.

How long has it been since soccer balls have had the pentagonal panels? And yet every depiction of a soccer ball looks about twenty years old.

I say DC United team up with United Airline. It makes sense right? In a wild dream.
