A great piece of entertainment. Segares owned Beckham all night, Rolfe showed America what he can do, Lando got nothing and Bruce Arena got some more egg on his face. The return of Soumare and Pause to our lineup returned the spine to the team and freed up Conde to do a bit more freelancing. Soumare should be getting his first US cap any time. Edson Buddle showed why he can't stick anywhere in MLS- his first touch is crap and his decision making is poor. The Fire put in digital sign boards in front of our seats which was great because they're much shorter than the old rotating boards and thus allow for a better view. The only down sides were the fact that Blanco is obviously mailing it in, basically refusing to run at all to get open or defend, and has no pace left when he does. That and the fact that the subs started signing autographs with 10 minutes left resulting in a terrifying tidalwave of kids into our section, completely blocking any view of the remaining game action.
