The Ben Cup 2008 (more info)

The 2008 MLS Schedule has arrived and as we suspected the 2008 edition of The Ben Cup will be decided early this year. DC will visit Rice-Eccles Stadium, for what will hopefully be the last time, on April 12, 2008. Two weeks later Real Salt Lake will visit RFK to complete the 2-leg aggregate series.

Ben Cup 2008 Rumblings

We totally missed this, but lucky for us the Royal Review did not.

It appears that the Ben Cup will be contested earlier than later. DC can start the year off right with claiming its first ever Ben Cup. Come on ya Black and Red!

Question: How does Marc Burch keep his wind up and still remain effective?

Answer: Free kicks.

He can take as long as he likes if the wind up is going to put the free kick past the keeper. Long live the Burch Bomb (from The Coiner of Words).

I know, it was against U-17's, bla bla bla. Really this preseason scrimmage means nothing, but if it was less than 6-0 it would mean something. Also, it has already been a long off season and we need to get this show on the road.
