Leaving DC with more images of the Open Cup to share

So it’s on to the CONCACAF Champions League. But that’s a ways off. Now, can this title give the team momentum to the MLS playoffs?

Fredy Montero is seen below. He told me after the game that with every touch and every play on the ball, he was thinking of his family in the stands at RFK. That he was happy because the team that opened doors for him and has treated he and his family well, as well as the fans, deserve a trophy and now he wants to get the MLS Cup.

Two people who I was glad for last night were Tom Dutra, the goalkeepers coach and Brian Schmetzer, who had been involved in so many of these tournaments and now had one won.
