The traveling #DCU support deserved a better performance.— Don (@donrankin27) November 2, 2014
As I write this, I'm on a bus hurdling down the Jersey turnpike with other DC United fans from last night's 2-0 loss to the New York Red Bulls. Young Frankenstein is playing on a DVD through the several screens on the bus and the scene with Gene Hackman is on. Nobody's really watching, the mix of fatigue, general daze at the result, various beer and liquor with a dusting of other illicit substances are wearing themselves off. Some (well, me) are drinking water and eating macadamia nuts. But speaking purely for myself, I certainly don't ask for better for the guys that I traveled lo these many miles to see.
To circle back on the comment at the top, and to borrow a quote the philosopher William Munny, "Deserve's got nothing to do with it." You do it because that's what you do. I'll do it again, so will you.
