    There has been a lot of negativity around here. I understand the frustration, I've been attending the games and I'm sure my blood pressure doesn't appreciate it. I think the whole scoring drought has left many of us baffled. After witnessing the unthinkable debacle Saturday night, especially regarding the 2nd PK, many have drawn the only logical conclusion: DC United is cursed.

    Oh sure we say it in jest, but what if it's true?

    We can point at Jaime's lackluster play, or having 6 defensive players in the line-up, or Fat Tony's ability in goal, or the suspect officiating, but that doesn't explain consistently outplaying the opponent with not much to show for it. Hell, maybe it does, but somehow I feel a little better to think the whole problem is external.

    When was the last time that one of our strikers scored a goal in the run of play? June 8th, Quaranta against New England. Since then Nelsen has scored 3 goals, Baby Bobby has scored 2, McKinley has scored 1, and Moreno converted a PK.

    Purely hypothetical question: what if some bitter, non-performing West African put some voodoo curse on all of our strikers?

    I think it's time to stop looking for Daglish, Gazza, Asprilla? etc. as that secret ingredient to the magic formula. Instead we should look into garlic, crucifixes, and/or goat's blood for some kind of black magic antidote.

    Should we all get together and bury a penny on the pitch like the German NT did? :)

    Heck, I've got a quarter we can use for this...

    In the end though, Chico, you know you have to say a big "Fvck you" to JOBU, and do it yourself. ;)

    You can give the rum and cigars to me, though. :D

    Maybe we should sacrifice an animal before the next game?

    (PS what a great 666th post :) )

    Didn't Kim or one of the SE's bake some voodoo cookies once?

    As I recall, though, they didn't help.

    It was a Dallas game during the 2000 season (either in May or June, we won both of those games). Must have been the combo of the make- your-own-Burn-player and bite his head off (I baked ginger bread men and brought some decorating frosting) and the luck candle I got at a local santaria store. I still have the candle and can bring next game. Gotta be talked into baking though, I ain't no Martha!

    Yes, please bring your candle and if you would bake gingerbread SJ Clash players, I'm think there's a certain poster who would like to eat Landon's head.

    If I didn't know any better, I would have guessed that somebody in the crowd had been secretly sticking pins into a Jaime Moreno bobblehead.

    ZOINKS! I really don't want to observe anyone suggestively licking the frosting off.

    I definitely can dig out the candle (and make get another). We'll see about the cookies.

    Maybe we could get Ronaldo with his witch-doctor hair from the World Cup final.

    Now might be the right time to lure Ronaldo here since he's pissed off at Inter.
