Thoughts on MLS from The Designated Player at Grantland

3

I don't always like what Grantland does, but they've made an effort to follow MLS more than ESPN has. Here's a great article from Graham Parker, The Designated Player, with a lot of nice DC tidbits.

The Sons of Ben are now called "The Dawsons"

5

In the spirit of the Black and Red United takeover, I'm using this opportunity to rename the Sons of Ben "The Dawsons," after Ben Olsen's "son" in this commercial.

RFK is the "Spiritual Home of US Soccer."

A great article from the City Paper detailing what makes RFK such a terrific venue to watch a soccer game, despite all its myriad flaws.

This has nothing to do with United, or even soccer, but it's a nice little reminder of what we can do as fans, and how our passion can help the players.

Whatever Happened to Christian Gomez?

+

MlSsoccer.com has been doing a bunch of these, and most of them seem to be about former United players. This one is about Gomito, along with this money quote: "With Jaime [Moreno], Ben Olsen and other experienced players, we had control over that team," he recalls. "D.C. was a top team and we would go everywhere expecting to win. Teams would go to Washington covered in fear. They would line up with all their men playing defense because they had so much respect towards us."

We picked up Danny Cruz

+

What I remember about Danny Cruz from last season is that he struck me as a petulant little prick. Well, now he's our petulant little prick, and more midfield depth in preparation for Olympic/injury absences to the wings.

39

I don't have time for a long recap, but here are some highlights. Juan Francisco hit a home run over the moon deck and out of the stadium.  It hit a tree outside, or it might have joined Adam...

Game 141, Thread 2: Giving the People What They're Ambivalent About

109

The Reds are losing 4-2.  It's the Cubs, so normally I'd predict that we win anyway, but Dontrelle Willis is pitching, and the universe has decreed that he shall always lose.

Chris Marrero makes two errors in his major league debut, and the Reds capitalize to beat the Nationals 6-3.

Sweet lovely death, I am waiting for your breath. Come sweet death, one last caress. Reds lose, 5-3.
