RUMOR: DC To Play 11 More League Games, Open Cup Final

WASHINGTON, DC, 29 July 2009: MLS Rumors² has learned via multiple sources that, in addition to their upcoming meaningless friendly Match Of The Century against ReAL Real Madrid, DC United may also play as many as eleven more league fixtures between August 1st and October 24. Opponents have not yet been announced, but are believed to include league leading Houston Dynamo, the Los Angeles Galaxy Feat. David Beckham, and defending champions Columbus Crew. In a major blow to United's title hopes, Red Bull New York Red Bulls Of Harrison, New Jersey Brought To You By Red Bull are not believed to be on the list.

Additionally, one source, speaking on condition of anonymity, indicated that United will play in the final of something called the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, possibly in early September, and probably against a USL side, since, according to our source, "United only ever plays USL teams in the Open Cup."

Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup? How have I not heard of this? Must be due to the utter corruption at USSF HQ, what with their shiny black full-size cars and shiny black shoes and shiny black handbags.

I wouldn't be surprised if there was some MLS All-Star game sometime soon, too, swallowed up in the penumbra of the Massive Club that is Real Madrid...

I called United's front office to ask them if they had any info on this, and they said, "No, but there are still plenty of good seats available for United vs Real Madrid at Fedex Field!"
