My daughter, Amy, and I traveled on a bus with a group of D.C. United supporters in a down pour to the first MLS Cup. We arrived a day early and spent the night in a hotel in Connecticut. Early the next morning, we left for Foxboro Stadium – only to arrive several hours prior to the stadium opening. Thousands of us stood outside during nor'easter weather conditions until we were finally allowed inside. We were all drenched and sitting with people from all over the country in that cold, concrete stadium.
