Oh, great, so now instead of giving up a goal in under 10 minutes, we're doing it before the players are even done breakfast.

92 minutes of nothing, then - who else - Scholes.

Beautiful day. I've been a season ticket holder for 13 years, and I can't remember the last time I wasn't enthusiastically looking forward to a match on a day like this. Maybe during the Hudson years. Maybe I need to stop coming to this site and wallowing in the communal misery :)

@regularfan - I was coming on to write the same thing. Thanks, you saved me the time. I think I'd rather watch the Caps tonight then go to the United game.

Maybe if enough of us say that - and act on it - Will Chang will realize he's got to shake up this organization from the head of the fish down.

Barca wouldn't give up the beloved Messi for a meaningless game.

Very nice reporting by Tenorio on Dykstra, well worth clicking through to read.

Years ago there was a very humdrum opener when DC hosted Chicago in a scoreless tie. The "highlights" were a Chino Alegria shot from outside the area and an attacking run forward from Chicago's Chris "Kaka" Armas.

I'd be happy with a similar result.

Anyone know about the status for Lot 8 tonight? Will it be open for parking?

Posted by: terptilldeath | April 17, 2010 1:09 PM | Report abuse

AFAIK, Lot 8 is still a warzone with very limited available spaces.

For the purists, especially the ones who don't want to do the work, the Guardian has the single table MLS standings.
