I fully expect to see that at Dick's Sporting Goods tonight.

Anyone like to translate that announcer?

Safe to say Dempsey and Eddie Johnson are the first Americans to start together at forward in a Premiership match? Maybe anywhere in elite European leagues?

Aside from Jozy and Rossi, of course.

Dude, Far out!


I mean, that dude was way far out from the goal...

USA Women up 2-1 at half. Goals by Rapinoe and O'Reilly.

That dude Pirlo is old enough to be an MLS DP.

I don't mean to knock down the cobwebs or anything but, uh, United's in action. No interweb at the Goff Estate tonight perhaps?

Lots of possession by United. Most of it fairly meaningless. As in, with 9 Rapids players between the ball and goal. But it's progress. Alsopp walks in alone on Pickens around the 43rd and tries to push it past him. Tries. Really hard. But fails.

A minute or two later Najar breaks a couple ankles before sending a cross into the area. Pickens spills the rebound directly to Alsopp at about the 6', who makes it interesting but cashes in.

Hate to be troll-ish, but right about here is where DC usually gives up two quick in succession . . .

Seems like a natural place to bring on Moreno, but he's not in the 16. And that's not a typo.

@SexyOffender - Thanks for the link.

Nice to watch DC not collapse at the end.

Not too shabby for three right backs and three (counting Varela) right mids facing a hot team on the road. United was seldom dangerous in the second half, but Colorado was seldom dangerous at all.

Given the depleted roster & other circumstances, this has to be the best win of the year. Not that anybody watched it, apparently. And I'm pretty sure this is the first time Boskovic went 90, not that I remember much that he contributed, aside from the generally solid possession in a road match.

Translation of the commentator? You don't understand what Allah means? He says it every 2 seconds near the end.

Glad DCU got a win, Najar is looking better and better out there.

Why doesn't DC United try to sign this guy?

This is a magnificent strike. Always in awe of such far out goals.
