In a week when there weren't exactly a ton of goals scored in MLS, there stood a very good chance that a goalkeeper would have a good chance to be the MLS Player of the Week. Given the performance Bill Hamid turned in, he would have been a serious contender no matter how many goals were scored around the league.

Just a few days ago, Andy Najar became the first MLS homegrown player to be sold abroad - and to a perennial Champions League team, no less. It was almost enough to make us momentarily forget D.C. United's first ever homegrown signing, Bill Hamid. You know, the guy who had the best saves percentage in MLS last year.

In front of a sellout crowd at PPL Park, Philadelphia Union began John Hackworth's tenure as manager with all the intent, energy and attacking vigor that was previously lacking from their 2012 performances. The result however was no different as the home side's inability to convert chances proved costly, as Chris Pontius' 78th minute strike stole all three points for DC United.

Don't think you were alone if you went into the half shaking your head and wondering how United were 2 0 up.

They left with a valiant effort behind them, but their heads ultimately down.
