Saturday kickaround: Jaime Moreno

*The front page of The Washington Post sports section this morning:

*My thoughts on Jaime Moreno's career as he prepares for his farewell match at RFK Stadium tonight against Toronto FC (7:30 p.m. ET, Direct Kick, GolTV Canada).

*The fabulous evening forecast at RFK from the Capital Weather Gang.

*College soccer: Eighth-ranked Virginia (9-2-3) earned a 1-1 draw at No. 20 Boston College to extend its unbeaten streak to five. Tonight, third-ranked Maryland (10-2-1) looks for its seventh consecutive victory when it hosts ACC rival Wake Forest (5-6-2) -- the Terrapins' last test before a rematch of the 2009 NCAA quarterfinal against Virginia next Friday night in Charlottesville.

Thank the heavens for MLS Direct Kick, I will be watching here in Colorado, and wishing I was sitting next to my Dad and my brother at RFK. As far back as the Dips vs.the Cosmos at Woodson High School, the DC area has hosted some memorable games. Although no Pele or Cruyff, Jaime was just as enjoyable to watch in his prime.

Why is this even a debate? Gotta have a balanced schedule.

Fair and balanced. The rivalries will take care of themselves. Already we don't like P.U. fans because they are illiterate, boorish, drunken, and reek of garbage. That won't change whether we play them two or four times per season.

Note to Philly fans (and the people reading this to them): Take this in jest.

Whenever United and the city get around to building a stadium and selling the naming rights to some corporate supporter, they should still name the pitch "Jaime Moreno Field" at such-n-such stadium.
