Pouring down rain during a Cascadia Cup match. Yup, that sounds about right...

Good fun watching the Crew beat the F*re, followed by an *AWESOME* Flogging Molly concert.

And Chris Rolfe may be cleared to play in this game.
I'd forgotten that we had a token Fire fan. No offense, but do they always dive so often? I've had occasion to see the last three Fire games now, and Pappa and Nyarko can barely stay off the ground.

The Crew v Fire game was fun to watch last night - not the outcome I'd prefer but a good match with solid play and lots of drama.

As for diving, Pappa drives me crazy with his constant arguing with the refs and theatrics. Patrick, though, plays hard and fast and gets the crap beat out of him nightly - I didn't see any questionable theatrics from him last night.

Sean Johnson (Fire keeper) badly misplayed the Crew's first goal - he didn't protect his near post. The team brought in an Italian keeper who played earlier this season when Johnson was unavailable - I'd like to see more of him.

Soccer match and a punk concert sounds like a damn good night.

Myself? Oh I just watched our reigning Cup Champions and Supporter Shield winners blow it for the 7th time in a row.

Even though I had to deal with the awful, cripping depression () of supporting my crappy club no matter what, my day was most certainly brightened by USA dominating Scotland 5-1.

That's right, 5-1. Donovan had a hat-trick, an assist, and was a vital piece of another goal (I guess in hockey you'd call it a second assist.) Not only that but Michael Bradley had a CRACKER of a volley shot. Defensive middie my a**

Exactly. Boy can score. That goal was nuts. The goal he scored in the WC to save the slovenia game was very nice.

I think some people forget that he scored 16 in a season with Heerenveen.

He's a tremendous box-to-box midfielder who, for some unfathomable reason, is completely underrated by US fans. We've tended to play him a little deeper, probably because of the rest of the personnel, but I cannot believe how much stick he's gotten because of who his dad is. He's IMO our third best outfield player - and much closer to the top two guys than the rest of the pack.

What's really crazy about the nepotism folks is that some of them won't let go of it even now. I'w saw an argument today that he's just gotten that much better in the past year, that NOW he deserves all the PT, but before that he only played because his dad was coach. Simply nuts.
