All is well at RFK Stadium, the pillar of East Capitol Street. The old building brushed off last night’s storm and is in working order (fingers crossed) for tonight’s match between D.C. United and the Montreal Impact. This place is going to outlive us all.
With a victory, United would retain a share of first place in MLS’s Eastern Conference, regardless of the New York Red Bulls’ result at Toronto this evening. DCU has won five straight at home and is 6-0-2 at RFK since losing the opener. Montreal is coming off a midweek defeat at home against Toronto.
