Optimist: if they play like this regularly, things very likely balance out, ball starts to go in goal
Pessimist: Team could dominate most games and still end up with too many 1-0 losses or 1-1 draws
The Washington Spirit, kind of like D.C. United, need someone who can put the ball in the back of the net. Unlike D.C. United, however, the Spirit are just dominating games, so they might just be one piece away.

MLS continues to do poorly in the Concacaf Champions League, where they get beaten out by Liga MX usually on the basis of roster depth. It will continue to get closer, but MLS isn’t there yet.
Anywhere but the DMV, please!
Forward Madison continues to have excellent looking jerseys. I wish MLS and adidas would take some notes that people actually would buy more jerseys if they looked good!
That’s all I have on this slow Thursday; what’s up?
