Wow. 4pm on Thursday and AUT v POL is in progress now at 0-1. I'm 50% Polish, so "yay!" I'm also 25% Austrian, so "boo!" I'm also 25% French, with last name Montcalm, so "go France!"
And I'm the proud new owner of an Olympique Lyonnais jersey after my wife's trip to Paris. "Why no PSG jersey?" you might ask? Not sure, but don't look a gift horse in the mouth.
So what's the point? Not sure. But DC United plays on Saturday night, and by then I should be almost ravenous to see our team attempt the quality that I've been seeing from Austria and Switzerland in the past few days.
Tonight: MLS Cup 2007 redux take 2. Although the Revs lost to the Dynamo last year 2-1 for the league championship at RFK, they handily beat the 1836 in their first game of the season by a count of 3 to nil. Should be a good one. Set your Tivos and then meet me at Kitty O'Sheas.
UPDATE (4:41pm): Oh. My. God. How do you give a penalty in stoppage time for that infraction? Horrible decision.
