    damn, thats bad news for nick (and us), but i think that doug warren had a good debut on thursday, and i feel relatively safe in his hands.

    here's to a speedy recovery for nick... huge loss.

    It must be on the Front page!!

    Hey, this story got TOP of the page - FRONT PAGE in the Post Sports section.
    Highly unusual. I normally have to look very thoroughly thru the entire section to find the two little columns in the back.
    Does bad news sell or is United maybe finally getting some deserved attention??
    Hoping the latter.
    Will definetely miss Nick's abilities and experience.
    But from what we saw of Warren Thursday and in US Open Cup, we may be OK.

    Good article by Mr. Goff.

    GREAT that it is on the front page at the very top!

    I am glad to hear Mr. Hudson is feeling better.

    I wish Rimando a speedy recovery.

    ps-The front page of tomorrow's Sunday Washington Post should be awesome! ;)

    I can't stand astroturf or whatever you want to call it.

    Ask Chris Armas about grass, guys.

    Turf likely contributed to this injury, but he was running and jumping at an awkward angle. There are some crappy grass fields around this league so I wouldn't be so certain that there's no chance he could have suffered the same kind of injury on some of them.

    This sucks for Nicky. Big time. Best of luck in your recovery.

    Brian you could ask Evan Whitfield about that same grass, too. Maybe Fire players are just jinxed at RFK.

    I hate turf as much as the next guy, but just think what condition that "grass" gfield they had last year would be in after Isabel?
