Since I don't want to talk about EPL results (Fergie, what up?), let's reflect on last night's MLS fun. It's nights like that when I really love the Brewhouse. We had our room set up with Crew-DCU and NY-LA. While the DC game was kind of bleh during the first half, goals were flying in from everywhere at Giants Stadium. Two assists in the first ten minutes for Beckham was quite the Broadway debut. He added a third assist later, but the hometown crowd was able to leave happy with a 5-4 win. I bet FSC was pleased...
DC finally starting putting balls on goal in the second half and took home a 2-0 win. I love the way DC plays, but they are too reluctant to take shots in the attacking third sometimes. It results in some great possession, but not enough to show for it. Great goal on a rebound by Fred, then a great individual effort by Emilio on the second. Ezra Hendrickson is still trying to figure out where Emilio came from.
In the nightcap, Cuau and the Fire shutout RSL in Utah 2-0. The new boys, Blanco and Wanchope, were the goal scorers. If those guys gell quickly, the playoff race could get quite interesting. As much as the league would like to see the Galaxy force their way into the race, I'm not so sure.
Okay, rambling's over, enjoy the Houston-Dallas and KC-New England games later today.
