Does that mean the PowerBoater69 cannot attend United's game tomorrow night?

The United have upgraded DeRosario to questionable for Saturday, that would be pretty cool to see him run on the field for the last 20 minutes and put us up.

Tickets in blocks of four cost less than individual tickets, costing only $4 more in total than three tix, so I went ahead and bought an extra that I don't need if anyone wants it.

I really dislike RFK. They need a new stadium.

This should be a great game.

RFK rules, best tailgating on the east coast, if the United can't even sell out the lower level why bother with a new stadium?

The Najar with an utter meltdown. The replays on TV showed quite clearly that the Najar was looking right at the ref and threw the ball forcefully‚ÄĒnothing like the time the Brett Favre accidentally hit a ref in the face with the ball. No excuse for what the Najar did.

The weather on Wednesday night may be VERY interesting.

That PK was maybe the worst I've ever seen.

Boring first half with both teams killing time passing the ball around on their own end, it was an ideal pace for the Red Bulls who were playing for the tie, next game they'll be much more aggressive.  Sloppy second half with the own goals and red card, not a high level of soccer on display.  Najar will fit in well here in DC, that move ranks up there with some of the Redskins all time stupidity.  I read some speculation that he might be suspended for an extra game, which during the regular season would be warranted, but a playoff game suspension is already a very significant penalty, so hopefully we'll have him for the next round if the United can pull it out on Wednesday. 

As always the RFK parking lot scene ruled, we partied it up next to the DC Ultras tailgate, the fan clubs marching into the stadium is something that works great in a giant parking lot setting, but not so great at Buzzards Point where there will be no surface lots.  Big down side of the night was that some jerk-off stole my grill, my wife gave that to me for Christmas back in 2002, it had been put to good use at dozens of Redskins, United, and Nats games.  Figures that it would disappear at a United game, Nats and Skins fans have more class.

700 fans rode buses up to NY just to turn around and ride home again, I wonder how many will make the trip tomorrow.

Be happy you weren't on the Barra Brava bus, they got hit by a van and had to wait in the snow for a replacement bus.

They looked like crap for the first 15 minutes, but they're playing a lot better right now.

This game has opened up a bit. Pontius needs to get the ball more.
