Back to the Cathedral!Good morning! The Portland Timbers come to the Cathedral of Football
for the first visit since they foolishly decided to trade one Kenny Fuckin' Cooper to the Red
Bulls. We all know what has happened since: 13 goals for New York, the firing of John Spencer and a
comfortable spot at the bottom of the West for Portland.
The final places in the Euro 2012 semifinals will be booked this weekend, with four teams aiming

defending champion Spain looks to thwart France's tournament run and set a date with Cristiano
Ronaldo & Co.

A ferocious rivalry. An emotional return. A hot team on the playoff hunt. CONCACAF Champions
League revenge. It's all on the docket Wednesday night.
D.C. United and the New York Red Bulls meet in the rubber match of this year's Atlantic Cup,
with United looking to creep up to third place in the Eastern Conference, while New York eyes the
top spot and can leapfrog Sporting Kansas City for first place with a win.
D.C. United and the New York Red Bulls have played many intese games over the years, but it has
been a while since a meeting this late in the season between the two rivals has had playoff
implications for both sides.
The latest edition of the Atlantic Cup will be decided at RFK Stadium Wednesday night in the
rubber match of the season series between two teams looking to gain a stronger foothold in the
Eastern Conference playoff picture.
After reading Ginge's comments about Galavision in the previous post, I was resigned to thinking
that the highlight package would also be in Spanish. Not that I don't like Spanish broadcasts of
the Houston Dynamo, and as I wrote in the comments thread, listening to the Galavision guys on
repeated references using the players' full names, like "Robert Alan Boswell," "Geoffrey Scott
Cameron" and "Bradley Joseph Davis," was beyond awesome.
What a fabulous night of soccer at BBVA Compass Stadium. A 4-0 thumping of a 10-man D.C. United,
Boniek Garcia scored his first goal, Will "Dancing Bear" Bruin got back on the score sheet and
Brian Ching scored a Pirlo-esque penalty. No doubt everyone in attendance had a great time.
As for those us forced to take in the match on television, it was slightly less enjoyable.
Coming off a glorious 3 points last night from our Men in Red, Fire fans should be in a pretty
good mood today. We have done an open thread for other soccer games before here at HTIOT and it
seems like it has gone over pretty well. For that reason I thought I would set one up and host it
today for the 2 MLS matches taking place.
Is there much left to say? After two seasons the Philadelphia Union looked to be onto something
huge. With a stout defense, a young core, and veteran leaders who relished their roles, the formula
for success had been discovered.
