D.C. United at New York Red Bulls

We meet again.

You know the circumstances. You know what is at stake.

So here we go…..

The weather is cold and breezy but dry. The field is clear.

After all we’ve been through in this series, you know deep down we’re going to penalty kicks.

In our season-long tour of good eats on MLS road trips, a wintry shout-out to the historic village of Cranbury, N.J., and Molto Bene Caffe, which, despite 11 days without regular power, continues to offer a limited menu.
