That's actually a nice looking stadium. The green turf gives it a nice pop. That crowd is nuts. Maybe next time they should have different people sing the national anthems.

ESPN, you watching? Did you see how HDNet showed the anthems?

Quick question, I live in the DC area and United will be playing this Thrusday against NE. Does any one know if cable companies (FiOS in my case) black out ESPN2? Or is the game exclusive to ESPN.

MLS games on ESPN2 are exclusive to the network. You should see no blackouts in your area, regardless of carrier.

Enjoy the games...

Off topic but pretty funny. http://www.maximonline.com/articles/...aspx?a_id=7541

I was looking for the Rivaldo one and it's in there. The last one was this year and the announcers on FSC were busting up about it when they showed it.

Yeah. Save of the year by Reis at the death.
Anybody think the league office is out to get Shalrie Joseph?

Heck of a comeback RSL had last week against NY. Will be interesting to see how they perform tonight.

Two of the best goals scored in MLS by Brown. Thanks to HDNet I saw that game in full HD glory.

Game last night was so-so at best. I am afraid success went over Freddy Adu's head.

The ballpark, that's another story - That Colorado stadium is great!

And it's football in HD, so even a so-so game looks great

Directv since June 2011 and loving it!

I thought Freddy was pretty good last night , he just needs to finish off his chances. The new coach gives him a lot of freedom upfront. Both teams played like they were running on egg shells.I loved the look of the new stadium specially at night time, such a Euro look. I wish they bring back the over head camera. The first game was very cool with over head shots.

I was watching Bulls x Pistons. Then at halftime, I switched to Dallas at Chicago game. I haven't changed back since. Very good match, several balls hitting the post and crossbar, beautiful goals, very good match indeed!

Yes it was. Dallas has a nice young midfield with the hispanic triangle of Richetti (Arg.) , Toja (Col.), and Nunez (Mex.) and the Amerk striker... FrankenCooper! If Rolfe and Guttierez could have gone for Chicago it might have been a barnburner. Still, well played and intense for a May affair.

I know it was on HDNet but did anyone see Beckham's goal Sat night. We were just about to turn the game off and he made that shot.

I cancelled my HD package from Dish and only get HD from OTA which means no soccer in HD unless we are in a World Cup year. I have been watching all my soccer in SD (Spanish Primera, Copa Libertadores, Champions League, Mexican League, and MLS).

I heard one of the announcers on Univision or Telefutura said that HD is coming to their Network (can't recall if he said next year or next season). But it looks like Spanish language soccer will be here soon. That could mean OTA (free) soccer in HD (Mexican League, MLS, Superliga, World Cup).

Anyone with insider information about this?

I was watching. If you have the leg to get it there you should probably hit it. But my buddy (who plays for a good local side) and I agreed neither of us could have done it.

The season is off to a great start with lots of exciting games. The overall quality of the league is a small step up. Blanco is sick, Beckham is sick and many other teams have found skillful players to give their teams some creativity...in the East anyway. The young Gambians have been great for NE and the Crew have a 20 year old Nigerian to unleash in recently signed Emmanuel Ekpo.

Tonight is a spotlight game for my money. DC is off to a terrible start and needs points to get out of last place. The Revs will jump into first in they don't lose (having played 2 extra games).

My love is bigger than your love. Sing it!

Don't forget the boost Laurent Robert & Armado Guevara gave to Toronto from the beginning(tho both looked pretty flat IMHO Sat.)

Couldn't agree more about tonite's match. we'll see if Gallardo is really starting to fit in with United's style & if Quaranta continues improving his form.

Oh anyone here hear about McBride coming back to MLS? probably allocated to the Fire but good to see him back home!

We heard something about McBride here in Columbus. This is the latest from the Columbus Dispatch soccer reporter/blogger Shawn Mitchell.

Matt said the process might not be as simple as it would be if Brian were simply a foreign or domestic player new to the league. It also isn't as simple as Brian choosing where he wants to play.

The reality is that in the past there may have been some less restrictive regulations or guidelines in place in which a player could say he only wants to go here or play for this (particular) team, Matt said. All the sudden you snap fingers, and that works.

http://blog.dispatch.com/crew/2008/0...ed_wires.shtml

Essentially, Toronto has first dibs in terms of allocation, the Crew have the DP money (I am personally offering a $50 Chipotle gift card, we were behind him on line once)and Chicago needs to figure out a way to make it happen via dealings either with Toronto or for another DP slot.

Without a doubt in my mind if TFC don't get Robert and Guevara they are in last place right now. With them they should contend for the playoffs.

My love is bigger than your love. Sing it!

This Sunday 11/22/09 ESPN2 will televise 2009 MLS CUP between RSL and LA Galaxy at 730pm in HD, in prime time. I hope all our soccer fans tune in this Sunday to watch a great match-up. As you all know by now that, the MLS ratings are way up on ESPN , ESPN Deporte and Fox Soccer Channel. By the way FSC will go HD in 2010.

If you checkout Bigsoccer.com you realize how big soccer has become since MLS came about in 1996.
