In my mind's eye I can see the next month's Washington Post sports section headlines September 1, 2002 "United: No way Jose" San Jose hold DC to a 0:0 draw at RFK. United fail to capitalize on majority of possesion with paucity of shots. September 8, 2002 "You say you want a Revolution" Battling for the last remaining playoff spot in the east, the Revs see off United with a 2:0 victory. United's scoring woes continue. September 13, 2002 "Clint: Make my day" Metros keep up pressure on New England following 1:0 overtime win at Giants Stadium. This is the 2nd time Mathis sinks United in just over two weeks. Setember 15, 2002 "Day late and dollar short" Quintinilla gets 4th minute winner in 1:0 victory, but it's too late to help down and out United into the nearly all inclusuive post season. September 20, 2002 "Burned" United are thrashed 5:1 in a meaningless last game of the season against play off bound Dallas. United front office left to ponder off season shake up. Etcheverry looking to South American move.
