    Is that we can't go to 3-0 in MLS Cups against the Gals next Sunday. That would've been sweet, especially in their own house.

    My biggest regret is finding that my DVR, which I'd set for enough time to record OT and PKs if it went that far, didn't record a damned thing. :mad:

    my DVR recording cut off right before Moreno's PK attempt. :( I'll have to try and record the re-broadcast so I can get the full match for my archives.

    My biggest regret is that I lost my voice around minute 70. I was so done that I wasn't making any noise from a few minutes after Gomez' goal. Every game I say that I'm going to pace myself, but MY GOD...how can you not loose your voice screaming those amazing DC goals?

    This was the second best MLS game I have ever seen easily easily the best I have been to, live and in person.

    You know, crusio, Princeton really isn't THAT far from DC. You should come down more often.

    By minute 80 or so, I had a screaming headache, my voice was shot, and I
    was exhausted, I know the feeling.

    My biggest regret is that my husband's a wet blanket who doesn't like to hang around for post game celebrations.

    I was down twice this season... For ADU debut and this game. Both were great times, but last night was the best time I have ever had watching soccer. DC United has the feel of a true soccer club. It was, in short, amazing.

    Mine did the same thing!!! Luckily my "punk" brother that changed his mind to not go to the game (actually his not-soon-enough-to-be ex-wife is the most at fault) after I bought his ticket was home and noticed it wasn't recording so he started it. It missed a bit in the second OT period, but got everything else.
    I hope to catch the replay so I can have it in one full consecutive chunk.

    I have no regrets, but I think my wife regrets that she doesn't let me go over there more often, it was probably the quietest ride home in 7 seasons (lost my voice sometime in OT) :D

    That was before my time, so I didn't actually know about it until reading another thread this morning.

    I don't mean to put a damper on all the celebrations, but here's my biggest regret:

    I don't know how many of you knew Ed Scullen. He didn't post here (though he often lurked) and was one of the older members of the SEs, in his late-40s, I think. I met Ed when I was editing the Screaming Eagles newsletter and he volunteered to write book reviews for it. He had been with us through the good and bad times, coming to about half the games with his son, Ian, and always wore a DC United scarf and a tartan tam o'shanter, regardless of the weather, and a smile, regardless of United's form.

    He'd stop by the tailgate, have a burger and a beer, and we'd talk about soccer, and I was always amazed at the depths of his knowledge about the game. It didn't matter whether it soccer, football, futbol, or calcio; he had studied the game around the world and was as much an authority on the sport as anyone I've ever met.

    Over the summer, Ed passed away, very suddenly, leaving behind a wife and a son. My biggest regret was that Ed didn't live long enough to have seen us return to MLS Cup.

    I remember Ed. God bless him and his family. That is a true regret.

    Condolences to Ed's family.



    My only regret is not leading the pitch invasion that my two daughters so badly wanted to carry out!

    I'd also like to add my condolences.

    Maybe Ed's pulling some strings upstairs, though.

    I sounded like a voicebox by about minute 30 :) By minute 70, I think I lost a lung. ;)

    I regret that we had things going on yesterday and I had to listen to Max and Allen do another terrible announcing job.

    Right On! They were just horrible. Embarrassing, really.

    Congrats to DC, but this loss hurts a lot. I just wish Gillette Stadium (a/k/a the Morgue) had the atmosphere of your stadium.
