#tbt: Watch the 2012 8-goal shootout at Buck Shaw

In May 2012, D.C. United and the San Jose Earthquakes were the two hottest, highest-scoring teams in MLS. Things have changed: In July 2014, both teams are built on lock-down defense, but only United is finding any joy in the standings.

Vote Bill Hamid for Save of the Week!

D.C. United's homegrown 'keeper saved the game with his big right paw last weekend, and now that save is up for league honors. Go vote!

Vote Nick DeLeon for Goal of the Week

Nicky is up against some strong competition (especially Cubo Torres' strike), so get your votes in!

The Prem's dirty little secret + World Cup semis!!


Glory for D.C. United players! Fretting over commentators! Fretting over Neymar! Fretting because England! Yellow cards for having fun! Your Tuesday morning Freedom Kicks are here for you.

DCU @ Toronto TV info + Gamethread

The Black-and-Red hit the road to take on the Reds, holders of the best points-per-game mark in the Eastern Conference.

How will United score goals without Fabi?

In which we look at the various ways D.C. United could (but won't) change up their system in the wake of Fabian Espindola's suspension and Christian's departure.

USA-Belgium prediction thread


What good is having a blog if you can't go on the record with predictions in what has been an utterly unpredictable World Cup?

FK: The world has disappeared, except for Kaka.


The rest of the world disappears for one day, and we know is the game.

DCU vs. Sounders TV info & gamethread

MLS is back you guys! And how, with the first matchup between two first place teams at RFK Stadium in... well, it's been a while.

A very CONMEBOL day in the World Cup knockout rd.


It's all South America all the time as we find our first two quarterfinalists.

Freedom Kicks: Elimination begins in earnest


How was the first day of simultaneous kickoffs for you? Did you somehow get even less done at work than you did last week? Um... yeah, me neither.

Read the stadium hearing testimony I'll give Thurs

Tuesday afternoon is the deadline to sign up to testify at Thursday's hearing. Will you join me?

On role reversal and gut checks: Soccer is cruelty

The United States' first two games at this World Cup could not have had different roles for the Stars & Stripes. Being on the side of things the USMNT were on Sunday is a lot less fun.

USA-Portugal TV info & gamethread

The Yanks can go marching into first place in Group G with a win over Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal deep in the Amazon. Simple, right?

Group H is chaos! Hooray chaos! Day 11 open thread


We wrap up the second round of group stage games today as Group H takes the field.

#tbt: USA 3-2 Portugal at the 2002 World Cup

It was basically the Costa Rica beating Uruguay of the early aughts.

Open Thread-Is today the day Luis Suarez loses it?


The 2014 World Cup officially enters its second week with some intriguing and important matchups. Uruguay vs. England headlines with the middle game of three, sandwiched by Colombia vs. Ivory Coast and Japan vs. Greece.

World Cup Day 6 partythread


It's the final first day of this World Cup as Group H finally gets underway, and the first match of the second go-round. We've got Belgium and Algeria, Russia and South Korea, and hosts Brazil take on Mexico. Follow along with us, won't you?

Advancing from Group H, it's Belgium and...


The final group of the 2014 World Cup kicks off Tuesday, and it's tougher to predict who might advance than it would seem at first blush.

Celebration Freedom Kicks!


World Cup, meet the Open Cup. Both matter today. Also: BROOKS BROOKS BROOKS BROOKS!!! OMG BROOOOOOKS!!!!

USA vs. Ghana Revengethread

Remember 2010. Remember 2006. Remember the freaking Alamo! Let's beat Ghana!!

Can the USA escape the Group of Death?

Our prognosticators (try to) unwrap themselves from Old Glory just long enough to let you know whether Jurgen Klinsmann's side can get past Ghana, Portugal and Germany and into the knockout rounds.

Is Group F as obvious as it looks?


On paper, it might be the easiest group to pick the top 2 teams, but will our panel go with the obvious choices? Or will somebody inevitably pick Nigeria or Iran to displace one of Argentina or Bosnia and Herzegovina?

Can Honduras do the unthinkable? (No, they cannot)


Do Andy Najar and Honduras have a chance against the likes of France, Ecuador and Switzerland, holders of the longest unbeaten streak in the international game?

Group D, your home for World Cup schadenfreude


You want somebody to root for in this World Cup? You should probably look in a group that doesn't have the self-loathing, the original bus-parkers, the racist vampires and the country that complained about a February snow in Denver.

Group C is a total toss-up!


In which a few B&RU staffers go on record with how they think Group C will go down and whether there will be any surprises among Colombia, Greece, Cote d'Ivoire & Japan. More than any other group in this summer's World Cup, this one is a crapshoot.

Spain? Chile? The Dutch? Surely not Australia!


It's much less clear cut than Group A. Who advances from a group that starts with a rematch of the last World Cup championship match and that features the current soccer hipster darling as well as an overlooked side looking to play spoiler?

Brazil will walk away with Group A. Who lands 2nd?


Members of our staff and the rest of the B&RU community have opinions. Those opinions do not stop at the water's edge, so today we open our series of World Cup predictions posts with the obvious place: Group A.
