Meanwhile, DC United can't score.

Lol that dive near the beginning was epic.

Speaking of dives -- I had tremendous sympathy for Eduardo and was cheering his comeback from that horrific tackle and grotesque injury. He surrendered any claim to my affection with that shameless dive in the box against Celtic. He got his penalty, but he lost a lot of respect from around the world, I'm sure.

1st goal by Carolina = worst celebration dance ever. Dancing like a 12 year old girl? Really? It makes DeRo’s mummy walk look respectable.

Maybe it's United States of Arabia.

Hey Steve,

With DC United pushing hard to promote the Open Cup Final, have you gotten any preliminary report on ticket sales?

I think my son's u12 team could score on the guys wearing white. By goal #5 they were just watching...

I am watching Houston in Panama. Why do the referees placate the Latin crowds? The Latin crowds hate Americans. Why do we have to go down there and get beat up. This one is a farce. Neither Houston player did anything close to being given the boot. Their player got closelined right in front of the ref and then fell to the ground writhing trying to look like he got closelined. Is it really worth it to do these tourneyments? I like a soccer game, not a farce. The officials placate the home team. The officials should get together and work on the officiating and what to do in hostile environments without penalizing the visiting team.

The Panamanian who did the closelining was the one who fell and tried to make it seem like he was the injured party. We get this all over, T&T, Mexico, Panama, Hondouras.

I've seen alot of questionable officiating before, but nothing ever coming this close as what I've just watched in the Dynamo game. I'm not a Houston fan, but they ought to be steaming mad. That ref was beyond clueless. I still don't know why Corey Ashe was sent off, and I'm pretty sure he still doesn't know why. Ugh.

Does anyone know where the ref is from? I heard he was from panama? if so how would that be fair?

@Norteno: I think dude was a Trini.

When the president of MiamiFC says that they should all be embarrassed--Dude is 100% right. That result is an utter disgrace. Losing by 6--ok--maybe a bizarre fluke combined with a dreadful night. But 9?!?!?

@VirginiaFan: There is no alternative to international play except to say that you do not want to compete and in the case of the US, that ain't gonna fly...

That player for Miami with the dive should send his highlight tape to the Arsenal. He's great Gooners material.

I wait for the day for a player to score and lift up his jersey and have a shirt under that says "I belong to the Flying Spaghetti Monster."

The USL game highlights prove that bad officiating affects the game's outcome. Miami had some good chances before the first Carolina goal. How the referee could allow that first goal to stand is unbelievable.
