    All -

    I just wanted to let you know that our 'Man of the Match' jersey auctions are up and running again. This season, they will be housed on mlsnet.com's new auction site: http://auction.mlsnet.com (our team link is on the left toolbar).

    Proceeds from the auction go to benefit the work of our non-profit arm, United for D.C., which does some amazing work in the community (side note: their new site is up at http://unitedfordc.org).

    It's what folks call a 'win-win' situation. You help a great cause in United for D.C. and get a game-worn and autographed jersey.

    Currently up for grabs is Alecko's jersey following his goal against New York and Jamie's kit after his two-goal performance against Chivas.

    Happy bidding, and thanks for your support.

    -Kyle

    You know I'm all for helping out charity and what not, but there is no reason to lie. :D

    The game worn Nelson jersey is from 2003 NOT 2004.

    Unless Nellie wore long sleeves in July '04 (partly cloudy & 74 degrees says the box score) when we busted out the old jerseys for the friendly against Forest! :)

    Don't know if we used them any other time that season (didn't against Municipal).

    Edited to say oops... Nelsen didn't actually play in that match, but I assume he was around and available since he played for us three days later.

    But it doesn't claim the Nelsen jersey is game-worn. It's a 2003 jersey. What's the issue?

    Haha. Good point.

    Please note, though, that the League itself also includes items on our auction page. The jerseys I'm referring to are, specifically, 'Man of the Match' jerseys and will be so titled in all future listing (as they are in the other two listings).

    The highlighted words may be the issue. :)

    I hate you Mike Lasort. :D I went back and checked the photos from the Championship game just to make sure I was right before I posted so I wouldn't look like an idiot. And then I spell our former captain's name wrong. :eek:
    It is spelled right in the auction btw.

    Yes, it does. The title of that auction is "Ryan Nelsen 2004 DC United Game-worn #7 Jersey (Long Sleeved)" and the description says "Ryan Nelsen 2004 DC United Game-worn #7 Jersey. Here is your opportunity to own a Ryan Nelsen game-worn jersey from the 2004 season."

    Colonial717 correctly pointed that it wasn't a "2004 jersey."

    I was just noting that there was at least one chance for that to be a "2004 Game-worn jersey" although Nellie didn't actually play in the game. It's obviously more likely to be 2002 or 2003 if game worn, since that's when we wore those jerseys for most games.

    OK, so I can't read. :eek:

    I knew it couldn't be a 2004 game-worn jersey, so that's what I saw.

    Do you wonder why I have so little stress in my life? I see exactly what I want to see.

    I see us winning 2-1 tomorrow, btw.

    So who's the MOTM for the Clash/Quakes/1836/Dynamo/Dinamo/DIH-NO-MITE game?

    And where are all these auctions taking place? - on EBAY?

    That's dead on. I actually own the Eskandarian game worn jersey from the Forest match.
