DC United 3 - Colorado Rapids 1

Son 1 and I saw DC United beat the CRapids 3-1. Son 1 was wearing his #99 home replica (with his name, not Jaime's on the back) DC's Brian Namoff opened the scoring with an own goal. Namoff redeemed himself later with a wicked header off a corner kick and inside the near post. So DC scored four unanswered goals?

The match was part of a double-header, with the Freedom playing Red Star Chicago in the early match. We didn't make it to the early match. But, when we walked up to buy tickets, some people who were leaving after the first match gave us their tickets (section 119), so we just bought the cheapest seats available, but settled down in 119, not too far from the field. Nice digs.

Prior to kickoff we met some of the Soccer Insider regulars: BlackandRedRedDevil, OWNTF, VirginiaBlueBlood, and Mrs.VBB. Good folks with good taste in beer, and proof that not all of us on the internet are raving lunatics.

Son 2 has no interest in watching soccer, nevertheless, he likes his #14 away replica (with his name, not Ben's) so we bought him a DC United hat.

We drove back through the city so that Son 1 could catch a glimpse of the Capitol Building, the Washington Monument, and the White House at night.
