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.
