Chris Pontius has been through a lot - injuries, near Open Cup victories and tough seasons. Tonight, he, along with his D.C. United teammates, lifted that coveted trophy over their heads; they are victorious. And we were there to watch the many emotions Pontius went through as he watched his team claim the Cup for the final 9 minutes of the match. One thing is clear, this team means everything to CP13!
