    When? Saturday March 8th 7:00 EST.
    Where? RFK.
    What? A soccer game.
    Who? Olsen's Army.
    How? With lots of bite.

    Weather forecast for game day is 55 and sunny ... possibly a little cooler by kickoff. Looks like there's only 23 sections in stadium that still have seats available out of 90 sections. Might be a pretty decent crowd. Not sure if there's any TV for this game ...

    No official injury list out yet, but if it's anything like last year I wouldn't count on the club to keep us updated. Columbus has 2 players missing on international duty this week : Waylon Francis and Giancarlo Rodriguez ... both with Costa Rica NT. The USMNT game against Ukraine seems to be postponed.

    Mods: Not sure how you want to do it this year but feel free to change title if we'd rather do 1 thread for pre game and post game. Last year was a bit of a clusterfuc*k.

    I'm looking for a 3-0 beat down of Cowlumbus. I probably won't see it, but I'll be looking for it anyway. :D

    No Oduro in this one, he's serving a suspension from last year. That's a help.

    I can imagine Bruce Allen gleefully shouting that to Dan Snyder as he makes signings.

    For the next 4 days at least. On the 5th day it will be all gnashing teeth and rending garments again.

    We all laugh at a yellow football team
    a yellow football team
    a yellow football team


    3-1 good guys - jumping out to a 2-0 lead, then making us sweat bullets for 60-70 minutes, perhaps ending the game with 10 men...

    I think that yearly opening Rise Up United banner with the phoenix-eagle will be worn out before we get to retire it

    Forgive the intrusion, just that I'd try to check on what your probable XI was after so many changes in the off-season? Is EJ healthy?

    Anyway, even in DCs worst ever season, you guys still manage to win the USOC. Un-be-lievable.

    Anyway, I'd expect this from the fighting canaries sans Oduro with the suspension.

    -----------------Clark--------------
    Williams---Gonzalez--Parkhurst--Francis
    ------------Trapp---Tchani--------
    Jimenez------Higuain------Anor/Meram
    ----------------Arrieta--------------

    We are now on our 2nd Gonzalez at CB and 2nd Francis at LB.

    This post serves to remind me that I have not looked at very many in/out/acquisition stories for anyone other than DCU yet this pre-season - I have no idea who half of these people are :)
    Maybe by the mid-season point I will have learned who plays for whom :cool:

    Gonzalez and Francis are Costa Rican internationals. Jimenez is a young guy they got from LA. Trapp was an U-20 US international, I think, and Steve Clark is a goalie from somewhere. The rest are holdovers from last year (except for Parkhurst).

    Parkhurst and Arrieta are on my fantasy team. Not saying they
    Sweet ... I've got Parkhurst and Arrieta on my fantasy team. I was hoping they'd start.

    Wasn't happy about starting two guys that are playing against United but both are too good to pass up for their value.

    Wish I could get Higuain but he costs too much

    If we get replacement refs and they blow all kinds of calls, will anyone notice they're replacements?
