The chances for TB are limited and dc United had the opportunity to tune up lines in recent tournament in Las vegas, NV

LHP - THE WORLD IS OURS!!!
tampa travels to NY and loses 3-2, after a half time lead 0-2 (both from M diallo, from Senegal)
at home they lost to KC...overall leaders
yesterday they traveled to Dallas, and won 3-1.....after el Pibe takes a PK and diallo has 2 more goals (now he is second in the league)
2 games ago: Mls and TB's GM traded raul diaz (el salvador), back to DC united, for J. maesner and 3 draft picks (2001- 02)
since dc...win one at home and ties on the road to archi-rival columbus Crew...1-1, RDA has not scored yet. (both teams are missing 4 players on national team duty)
Whatever could go wrong did go wrong for DC this year. Worst management mistake? Getting rid of Garlick in favor of Presthus in the goal. Presthus has the athletic body, but he can't cut it on the professional level, in my opinion. Too many amatuerish mistakes.
They will be back in form next year, and Rongen will still be at the helm.
I'm from Los Angeles, and I follow the Galaxy here and there but they make me sick because they always choke on big games.
I have a question for you: Explain to me how the hell did the Galaxy get kicked out of the play-offs? The results were (as you probably know) [Game 1 in Kansas] 0-0; [Game 2 in LA] 2-1, Galaxy; [Game 3 in kansas] 1-0, Wiz. Ok, they split all 3 games, they both had 4 points with a GF?GA difference of +1. Why didn't the have a game 4 or a PK shoot-out? To my understanding, the first to get 5 points moves on, now how do you expalin that? MLS is just to ridiculous, why not have only 2 games (like international play) and it would be easier.
PS - Don't tell me they went as far as to determing a winner by who scored on away games? That's ridiculous! I rather see the shoot-outs again.
