  1. In a league with as much parity as the MLS has, being a Toronto or DC fan right now has to be a little bit frightening.

    It is only three games in, but when 1-1-1 gets you tied with virtually every team out there, DC is 0 for 3 with -7 goal differential and a loss to an expansion team that didn’t look good in the other game they played. Ouch.

  2. Really like having the Thursday night game on ESPN and the late night FSC game. A FSC doubleheader is even better.
