Wizards fall to Seattle in US Open Cup Pretty weak coverage from the Star

Red Bulls are in a serious slump Much better from the Star.  Grathoff’s coverage is sooo much better than previous seasons

Kansas City Brass are scheduled to play a friendly against a PDL team that will officially start next season.  The Real Colorado Foxes.  Game is to be here in KC, but I do not know the start time.  I assume it will be at William Jewell though.

Ok, I’ll have my Wizards comments here.  I find it totally rediculous that we couldn’t beat that Seattle team last night.   KC plays a piss-poor NY team on Thursday and could have had a better balance of starters/reserves last night.   It’s not like a few reserves couldn’t have started Thursday had starters come off the bench.  I am all for reserves getting experience but you can’t go as far as last night.  That said, the team on the field for KC still should have won.  Many lost opportunities.  And of course the game goes on to end in the worst possible way: A coin toss errrrrrr…PK Shootout.

Too depressing as yet another USL team playing their starters will relish in a victory over MLS reserves all the time ignoring the fact that they didn’t play or beat the best that MLS side had to offer.   Even though our side could have won, I don’t care about schedule congestion, I think that Curt Onalfo needs to take the blame for getting knocked out of this competition just based on the lineup he put out there.

If we don’t beat NY on Thursday … ugh.
