Well Vasco is back. I have been away for awhile, health issues. Well the MLS season is over and the
best team money can buy in MLS won the whole darn thing. The Cup and the shield, congrats to Bruce
and the gang on their victory.
Lets recap some of the 2011 season. We saw two new MLS teams, that came up from USL, Portland which
started slow and came on strong, and almost made the playoffs, and Vancouver that came on weak, and
It is on the back of our Kit, on the collar. DC United the winners of twelve international and
domestic trophies, four time winner of MLS cup. The once proud team from our nations capital. The
team hasn't made the playoffs in two years. Now the team can't score against the bottom feeders.
Two games, zero goals, six goals allowed.
DC United has a press conference scheduled for 1pm tomorrow, to announce Benny heart and Soul of DC
United Olsen is coming out of retirement. After watching the team fall flat on their face last week
in KC, Benny has decided to come out of retirement. We just need a spark to get back on the right
Well the season has started, the Union had a bad night while the Sounders flopped around like a
fish out of water. Seriously Seattle players when fouled looked like they had run into a brick
wall, get a grip guys. It will back fire on you eventually. Colorado won on the road opening night

So far we had one day notice on the coaches meeting, and less than two weeks before the season
started. When I inquired, about this I was scolded.
Everyone knows Vasco is no fan of David Beckham, in fact I honestly despise the man as an over
hyped futboller, who has manufactured his fame rather than earn it.
He has chosen to come to the US because the money is good, and he wants to work towards a career
after futbol. So he has a work ethic, so he must not be all bad.
Another bad performance in Mexico, thankfully it only happens every four years. Offense is what
wins games, we have the talent, so why not use it. When will US soccer ever learn? Interesting
discussion on Cirrus about youth soccer last night. Seems everyone knows what we need to do, but no
one does it.
Vasco has had a rough week, two trips to PA, and it is only Wednesday. Dad is going to be ok after
