About damn time. It feels like this was taking forever to get to. Are you ready fro some football?

DC United has traveled down to Honduras to take on CD Olimpia in the first leg of their Quarter Final match up in the CONCACAF Champions Cup tournament. Amid a few AK-47’s and some stretching, the Black & Red were able to get a quick feel for the pitch conditions yesterday. Considering that United have only been in camp for just about three weeks, match fitness levels are not where the coaching staff would like them to be. Add to that that Olimpia is seven matches into it’s season, this could be a recipe for disaster.

So what is gonna happen? I am not sure. United Head Coach Tom Soehn says that he has the better football team, but the match fitness is in the back of his mind.

Assuming that United do not suffer the same type of meltdown that occurred in Mexico City two years ago against PUMAS (5-0 ass raping obliteration), I think that United have the chance for a 0-0 draw. From what I have been reading, Olimpia have not exactly been lighting up their scoreboard as of late and aren’t faring well in their domestic league run. If we start to fade in the later stages of the match, we could see our defense crumble and a 3-0 loss.

Steven Goff at the Washington Post is saying it will be a 1-0 Olimpia victory. 1-0 isn’t bad, considering that we get them at home the following week.

Well, lets hope for a good showing from our boys.

Also, the Houston Dynamo take on FC Puntarenas in Costa Rica today at 2:30pm on FSC.
