Turned it on about the 82nd minute.   It's all KC.   The one shot DCU had was high ...  very high.   The lead announcer is awful  .... frantic for no reason.

The United should refund all 16K fans their ticket money, pathetic showing tonight, good thing they didn't have a real crowd there to witness this crap.

Terrible game. Olsen has to be blamed for that loss.

The lead announcer was oddly excited the whole time I watched the game.   I watched the Premier League game this morning and they have a much less manic delivery.   I got the feeling the lead announcer is a young guy trying to make his mark.   He thinks he's the show.

The United's owner Chang spoke with the media yesterday about the new stadium issue and he's still holding it up based on demanding development rights from the city, clearly his top priority has always been obtaining a sweetheart deal on prime real estate.  Considering that the fan base for his team continues to plummet cuts into any tax benefits to the city, the mayor is smart to tell him to pound sand, the United can either build their own stadium or leave and find out if the good residents of Baltimore have quite the same level of disposable income as those of us here in Northern Virginia.

Evans was on the radio a couple of weeks and laughed at the idea of the city contributing anything- at this point united would be lucky to get tax abatements let alone city bonds. Redskins practice facility on the other hand..

Swansea is definitely the best passing team in the Premier League. Dominated possession in the first half.

I have ManU on FOX.   Do you have the super package?    I saw a few highlights of Swansea and City.

Yeah, I have FOX Soccer Plus.

Swansea had over 75% possession up until the 35th minute. They don't have too many good players, but they're a good team.

Might have to check into that for next season.   Is it a good value?    I believe my "problem" may be I don't have a team that I follow.   It's not like having a Steelers' package (LOL).    I would like to keep closer tab on the American "kids".    Plus, I like the Canaries.

Mad freaking props to Swansea. They deserved the win. Man U back up top, unfortunately.

It was the Rooney show.

Walcott was the man in that game. I think they'll end up third.

Chelski's backline is a hot mess...Napoli is running through it like a poker through butter.

Well, I was going to say that they were being run through like Vanessa del rio in a gangbang, but decided that was a bit crass.

I guess I spoke too soon.  Still, Chelski needs another goal and a clean sheet.

Got a chance to help shoot a commercial with DC United's Ben Olsen today (I'm the only one without a face blocked out, obviously). Really nice guy. I've always rooted for United to do well so I'll keep an eye on them this year and hopefully will get to a game soon.

:lmao: It's actually just dark jeans, the lighting in the photo does make it look like leather pants though.
