United Coach: Ben Olsen Last Season: 9-13-12, 7th Eastern Conference, 13th Overall Hashtag: #DCU There is a sense of anticipation around the DC United fan base this season, a sense of anticipation that fans have not had for a few years.  After missing the playoffs four straight years, the team invested […]

The Amazing Tim Howard Goal

Who says the U.S. national team is weak at forward? During yesterday’s Everton v. Bolton match, keeper Tim Howard broke the scoreless tie with a 100 yard strike that was aided by the wind.  I am not sure which is more impressive, the goal itself or how cool Howard was […]
