I wasn't there in 1996. Few of us were.

I wish I'd been there in 1997. I wish I'd been at RFK Stadium to see D.C. United lift their second MLS Cup trophy in two years. Winning that trophy in front of the home fans must have felt great for those players. Surely it was a fantastic experience for those United fans that were in the stands as well.

Three thoughts on Philadelphia Union:

Hackworth sends a message

If you didn't like the Union's starting lineup Saturday, then you haven't been paying enough attention.
