Fire Heating Up


The Fire hosts New England tonight in the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open Cup. The Fire just beat the Revs 1-0 on Sunday in Foxboro to extend their winning streak to three games. There is no reason they can't duplicate that feat at home, right?

Meanwhile, the Fire has moved into second place. Granted, this has plenty to do with the fact that the Eastern Conference is awful. Even DC United has been going through its roughest stretch of the season. But, hey, who's complaining? We'll take it.

Here we go now.

The rest of the U.S. Open Cup quartefinals also take place tonight...

Rapids at Galaxy - Landon Donovan sucks. That is all.

Red Bulls at DC United - Bruce Arena returns to RFK. Appreciative United fans give his man tits a warm reception.

FC Dallas at Dynamo - Fourth meeting already this season for these two. MLS needs this to blossom into a heated rivalry. A little bad blood never hurt fan interest.

Sadly, there are no non-MLS teams left in the field, which is disappointing. It's always fun when a Rochester, Seattle, Vancouver or some other USL team pulls off a few upsets and hangs with the big boys.
