Stupid hurricanes! As if the break wasn't already going to be unbearable enough with a 3 week long break from home games, Hurricane Irene had to come muck up an away game. With no scheduling yet revealed the next away game isn't until September 10th. No telling when the Portland Timbers vs. D.C. United game will get rescheduled. Many voiced their opinions about this upcoming weekend given that neither team are scheduled, but those are also international dates scheduled for national teams... DCU will most definitely protest any game this weekend due to them losing a significant chunk of their starting line up to national sides.
My guess is we'll see a mid-week game next week.
Enjoy the morning news!
