Maintain Your Composure, Sunday is Coming

RIMANDO OUT 2 WEEKS: The big news, such as it is, is that DC United backup keeper (and former starting keeper) Nick Rimando is injured after walking his dog. Rumors that his dog is named "Hristo" have not been confirmed. This is one of those injuries that will either be catastrophic or of no impact, with no middle ground. If Perkins goes down (or is taken out?) then things will get very dicey for DC United. If he remains healthy, it is unlikely that Rimando would have seen any time. So while we wish Nick to get healthy, I will also say that I hope the team has no cause to miss you at all.

JURGEN FOR NATS: Our inbox is getting multiple emails that cite the AP story saying that Jurgen Klinnsman is in talks with Sunil Gulati to take on the US National Team job. Honestly, I'm not sure that Jurgen can help the USA program a whole lot, but I like it since it means that there is no need to DCU to find a new coach.

WE LET YOU HAVE THE LAST WORD: Bill Urban dropped by to respond to our article where we responded to his article. Since that article had dropped down the page a but, I wanted to make sure you got a chance to see what he said. Also, Bill correctly points out that The DCenters doesn't have an editor and should probably get one. Of course, being a gentleman, he doesn't come right out and say that, but it is true. Yes, I meant to write Twellman. Passed right over it in proofreading as well. Sigh. Maybe I should be listening to this more.

We all need editors. Maybe we could split the costs of having one person edit both our sites?

d:

just a little joke, hope you took it in that spirit.

Ian Plenderleith caught me mixing up Wade and Chad Barrett earlier this year; as Brian said, we all need editors.

never pass up a chance to take a cheap shot at Big Head either...

nice free header in the first half tonight, for example...

peace,

Bill
