Thanks to Danny Califf and Chris Seitz, DC United no longer has any competition as the worst team in the league. Yes the Union continue to screw us over! But the worst part about it was that we had to suffer through seeing Dwayne De Rosario's stupid dance two times.
It took over 270 minutes, but finally someone has scored on the Wizards. The main culprit of KC's loss? Seattle's refusal to make Qwest Field about 30 yards thinner so the Wizards would feel at home.
So I have a question. Why is it a yellow card if you spontaneously take off your shirt as part of a goal celebration, but it is not a yellow card when Dom Oduro takes off his shoe and tosses it around like a hot potato? That just seems odd to me. Anyway, this game wasn't even close.

Good team? Check. Beautiful weather? Check. Immaculate stadium? Check. Attendance? 13,000. Ugh. Dallas was the better team in this match. Their loss to the Red Bulls came from their unfortunate decision to give Angel a mulligan on his earlier PK miss.
Is this a fluke, or the Earthquakes actually worthy of their 2-1 start? Well if the MLSsoccer.com highlights are any indication, San Jose dominated this match right up until the point that they went up by two scores and the Revs started pushing harder. No, I don't think its a fluke, but having possibly the best goalkeeper in the league sure doesn't hurt.
The Edson Buddle shows continues out west with his record setting 7 straight goals. Heaven forbid if he has to miss a match, say maybe during a little trip to South Africa this summer? On the bright side for RSL, Kyle Beckerman became the first to score on LA this year. But that's little consolation as they now sit in 6th place in the Western Conference standings.
The Rapids went into this one with the plan of dominating the scoreline while only scoring goals only from free kicks and penalty kicks. Luckily for them, the referee and Juan De Guzman decided to go along with it. Maybe it was also part of their plan to make sure that they don't have too many fans in the stadium to distract them.
