Take a drink each time Sullivan mentions "a Gattuso-like player."

Or says "I like this player" when discussing some run-of-the-mill central midfielder.

Or when he calls for a coach to make an attacking sub when said coach's team is already winning and in control.

Finish your beer if he brings up his favorite player, Chaco Gimenez, for no apparent reason.

Let's not forget when he talks about geography. "Dc is close to Baltimore, which is not too far from Philadelphia and Trenton."

Hell, let's just get drunk before the game so we won't have to listen.

Then there's the over the top pronunciations of Europeans/Latin names.
Time to make a beeline to Total Wine and Beverage!

Plus, you are required to chug a fifth of good Kentucky bourbon the moment Sullivan begins speaking English as his third language even though he is a native of Redwood City, California.

Does he play with fluidity?

No, Gattuso is the type of the defender that likes to go right for the jugular.

Congress approved the resolution of independence on July 2, 1776.

DC United plays Philadelphia Union on July 2, 2011.

Coincidence? I think not!

Not happy about this......US Soccer/MLS needs to be on FREE TV..until it has generated an audience...I guess is OK for the DCU games on CSN still - but it really limits viewing other teams in the league (not that there are any worth following except DCU)
Vamos United

Fred is back. Reaquired from the Revs for a 2013 Superdraft Pick, says the DCU tweets....


All credit to a crowded midfield...

Olsen plans to play the 3-7-0

GM Kasper on Fred's return: "Fred was very motivated to return to DC, and we look forward to his contributions.”


Read: "Wow, what a pay cut he agreed to..."

I'd rather watch Junior play instead of Fred...

This off-season was making sense until yesterday. Three moves in two days and two of them mystify me. I sincerely hope this involved a 50%+ pay cut, because at last year's salary he's making more than Davies.

I like Fred. He can make a good team sparkle every now and then, but he can also make a mediocre team look horrific.

I know this is a late-to-the-party comment, but can I add to the drinking game?

When he mentions a player or team's "recognition of a [soccer] moment" or "movement."

It's like the dude's a mystic - a bumbling, over-pronouncing mystic.

Bad deal on the FSC thing. 1st, no HD (except for dish subscribers, from what I understand). Now moving dates around? Friday nights? Isn't that the night they put the struggling shows on - to kill them off? Let's just hope that MLS can work some mojo with either FSC or other channels for a better deal after this season.
