ESPN Classics: DCU vs. Chicago 2005

In advance of Thursday's game, ESPN has put up another edition of their MLS Classics - this time, it's United vs. the Fire. This particular 2005 game saw a bunch of goals and a late winner from former D.C. defender Bobby Boswell (.com). The D.C.-Chicago rivalry has turned into a very strong one in recent years, due mostly to the Fire's ability to oust United from the playoffs (something only one other MLS team has ever done). That leaves a bitter taste.
