I remember DCU beating Puntarenas a few years ago...

Not that we can expect Davies to play, but Sochaux is at Marseille.

Any rumblings on player acquisitions prior to the early season window closing? Is it a likely chance that a player is involved in the compensation for Luci? Or are we stuck with what we have until mid-July?

"D.C. United's U.S. Open Cup preliminary match against Dallas is likely to be played April 28 at RFK Stadium. A final decision is expected soon."

Really? This isn't final yet? I have season tickets that include this game on that date and location. I just assumed it was final.

Losing Ching is a big loss for both Houston and USA. I hope Ching recovers in time. His work ethic is an asset that will be needed in South Africa.

Need a good spot to watch the game on Saturday near 14th and U. Any suggestions?

Isn't Chi-cha Lounge near there?

Does Chi-cha lounge show DCU games?

Pachuca-Toluca is just fun to say.

Congrats to Ronaldo on his 3rd kid. And congrats for finding a woman this time.

I've actually never watched a DCU game here, but they were having viewing parties there last year and the website still has the DCU badge on it... Give em a call.

Stoked to see that the Pachuca/Toluca match will be on Telefutura so I can watch it with my cheap @$$ non box cable. Have to watch Champion's League this afternoon online.

Beautiful day for a bike ride. Ju

GMUMiked: Nellie's is also an option, assuming you are open minded. You could prob. get the game on the huge screen on the rooftop deck.

@GmuMikeD Seconded on Momo's - that's frankly where you should go. It's extremely DCU-friendly.

Wow, Cruz Azul is really rolling. I caught the first leg game last week on tee-vee, but didn't see this blowout coming.
