Fire vs DC United
Heading out to the Fire game in a few hours. What is clearly the first big, meaningful game at the new Toyota Park will get underway in a few hours. The Fire takes on DC United, runaway leaders atop the standings, in what would be a massive win heading into the second half of the season.
Thanks to Bill DC for the preview.
No Eskandarian, who has six goals. He missed last week due to a red card and United didn't miss a beat, beating the Crew 3-2. Erpen had a couple defensive lapses last week. Hopefully he's recovered. Olsen's been playing well of late since his return from National team duty.
Don't know what's going on with them but they are clearly a lot better than their 5-7-5 record indicates. I guess opening and playing what, eight straight road games has a lot to do with that.
Like I said earlier, United will be fired up as they still have 4-0 in the back of their minds. It will be a great game.
No Eskandarian? Damn. I was hoping to laugh at his headgear.
