U.S. Open Cup: A Supporter's View

Here at MLS Rumors², we're starting a new feature - turning things over to supporters for their perspective. We're starting today with DC United supporter B. Chen Mohn, who took in last night's U.S. Open Cup match between United and the New England Revolution at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC:
Let me start off by saying that the U.S. Open Cup is clearly the most important club trophy in North America. Alright, let's just get that out of the way. Don't give me that "MLS Cup is our league title" crap, or that "the Supporters' Shield is the true champion BS," okay, it's all about the Open Cup. I mean, shit, it's, like, almost 100 years older than MLS Cup, and to win it, you have to beat teams from, like, every league and shit, not just f'ing MLS, man. I mean, last year, the Supporters' Shield was definitely the shit, same with, uh, 2006, but, you know, this year, the Open Cup winner gets into the Champions League and shit, so, you know, it's, like, better and stuff.

Unless we win MLS Cup, and then that's the most important trophy.

Anyways, Emilio rulez. And that's all I have to say about that.
Well then, thanks B. Chen. Glad we cleared that up.
