    Gawd, I so wish that was the case.

    Go all out. Win five games. Take a trophy. Play in CCL.

    But... I'm guessing we play the D squad.

    In my case it was simply false bravado put forth in the hopes that I might avoid weeping.

    It failed.

    Good idea, @DAFCrew. He can also sell us life insurance policies for when we are forced to do shots of Malort.

    I hope that's the quarterfinal game. We can't win against Chicago in the Cup. Home, away, neutral ground, rain, sunshine, competent ref or incompetent ref; it doesn't matter.

    It was a fun, frenetic start to THE CUP Proper last night. Over the 10 matches, we were treated to 36 goals, three penalty shootouts, five quasi-cupsets, and this wonderfully absurd (and fluky) goal:

    I had the pleasure of catching the match between the Richmond Kickers and Virginia United FC. Virginia played a feisty match but couldn't stand up to the big boys from Richmond, falling 6-2.

    Oh, and we've got nine more matches on the docket tonight (screw MLS, it's THE CUP, baby!). I'll be pulling for them Dutch Lions of Dayton to get the result in Erie, Pennsylvania.

    I friggin' love THE CUP!!

    Brother, have you forgotten the holy words of Gaven?

    "Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as Guille in Sigi forgave you."

    The only good Dutch Lion is a dead Dutch Lion, I says.

    In the world of Crew Catholicism, Eddie Gaven is basically Saint Sebastian. Sure, it was a rough way to go. But oh, to be immortalized in every art gallery in Europe.

    What were we talking about, again?

    Round 2 coming up next week, with Pittsburgh hosting Dayton, Indy hosting Lansing, and Louisville hosting Reading.

    The Crew will enter in Round 4, the draw for which will not be done until after the 3rd round is complete.

    So hopefully by then they'll be done with these horrible El Paso vs Madison and Memphis vs NY matchups.
