We have the Atlantic Cup, and the Filibuster crew is not giving it up. Adam, Jason, and Ben are back to talk about all things D.C. United 2-0 New York Red Bulls, including talking about Bill Hamid and how he has improved even more this season, even in the things at which he was already good. He then digress into Jason's pesonal crusade against Luis Robles, we talk about the rotation of D.C. United's three main forwards (Fabian Espindola, Luis Silva, and Eddie Johnson), and then talk about Perry Kitchen and Fabi. We end the first segment with a brief check-in to the Supporters' Shield race and the Eastern Conference race, and laugh that the Metros are on the other side of the red line right now.

When then preview the upcoming game against the Vancouver Whitecaps, and Ben goes on a bit of a rant about their averageness. We then talk about why the are so average, and then get into some of their players (and former players): Pedro Morales, Nigel Reo-Coker, and Mauro Rosales. Finally, as always, we break down how to gameplan Vancouver.

We end the game by talking a little bit about Ryan Nelsen and his firing from Toronto FC, and then dip into the Twitterbox to talk about an MLS version of the Community Shield. Give it a listen!
