    "Any way Ruiz’ goal in the Open Cup – the first one vs. Dallas, the 30-yard missile – could be MLS Goal of the Year? "

    True.

    How does it compare to Santino Quaranta's similar goal against Dallas?

    Does it count as MLS Goal of the Year since it was scored in a US Open Cup game? My guess is, no.

    None, as long as its not Kansas City.

    I agree with Jeff that the conference system is good for the league right now.

    I can't believe he turned off the Metros-Dallas game after two minutes. He had to know the Metros were going to give up at least one goal. Interestingly, Clint wasn't even on the field when the Metros scored the last two.

    Can someone tell me who "Marqhinho" is?

    Kansas City has the world's most passionate soccer fans. It's a little known fact, but nevertheless. Manchester, Milan, Liverpool. None of these cities come close to the true passion of KC.

    I missed the sarcasm, but I think you mean Kansas City is known for its LACK of passion.

    To quote JB last week:

    "the Metros (are) an incredible 16-0-2 in games when Mathis scores a goal"

    He predicted last week if Clint can score a goal or an assist in every game forth, they'll win the Cup. So when Clint scored in minute 2, it was all over as far as he was concerned.

    I am being entirely serious. Let me first debunk the myth of the passionate European fan. You hear the chanting, the screaming, the great spectacle and think that they are passionate. In reality, these are symptoms of stark boredom. Much like road trippers who amuse themselves by singing and other trivialities, the European fan is simply passing the time. He has little to see and cares even less. What else can he do? In contrast, Kansas City fans see the beautiful game as it was meant to be. So enthralled is the KC fan by the wizardry of maestros like Chris Klein, Nick Garcia, and Tony Meola, that not a word can be uttered. The fans are simply breathless.

    Perhaps the misconception of the listless KC fan is a result of the published attendance figures. I hesitate to say this, but the figures are a complete fiction perpetrated by a man who refuses to pay his share of income taxes. In reality, as anyone who has ever attended a Wizards game can attest, the Wizards draw around 40,000 per match. It would be more, but Hunt restricts the number of tickets. That's the "soccer capacity" business you hear so much about. A completely full Arrowhead Stadium would make it impossible for Hunt to evade the IRS.

    I can hear the objections already. "I've seen Wizards games on TV and there is no way that there are more than a few thousands fans." Ah, but have you really? When was the last time you saw a Wizards game on television? Now, think hard and long because the Wizards are NEVER on tv. Now you know why.

    jeff is surprised that no team has been mathematically eliminated when 8 out of 10 teams qualify?
