And in other news, my boys United defeated the Charleston Battery 2-1 at RFK tonight to become the 2008 U.S. Open Cup champs. Hell. Yes. National champions. This competition deserves the utmost respect from every team in America. It needs to become like the F.A. Cup, Scottish Cup or Copa del Rey, a prestigious national championship competition. Honestly, the MLS Cup really feels unimpressive in comparison.
Bonus: D.C. United punched their ticket to the 2009 CONCACAF Champions League with this win.
