US Open Final

DC United won their first trophy in four years as they outclassed Charleston Battery 2-1 in front of very enthusiastic fans at RFK Stadium. Luciano Emilio scored the opening goal in the fifth minute but immediately came out as he pulled a groin muscle. Ian Fuller struck back five minutes later and Charleston appeared to take control of the game but lacked the finishing punch for much of the night. Fred scored the winning goal in the 50th minute but I think United could have added at least one more. The finishing on both sides was lacking but United's possession in midfield proved to be the difference.

During the victory celebration, Bryan Namoff's medal fell off its ribbon. Leave your punchline in the comments.
