Meet the Morenos

Jaime Moreno is a family man.  Jaime and his wife Louise have five beautiful children, who have all grown up as a part of the D.C. United family.  During our recent trip to Jaime’s home, we spoke with his children about their favorite memories watching their dad on the field and what it’s like to have a legend for a father.  Of his five children, only his daughter Lilly was a little too shy to join us on camera, but she’s still very proud of her dad, too.

Como ese primer amor sincero e irrepetible que dice adiós, la despedida de Jaime Moreno marcará de por vida al D.C. United, que aunque le brinde un agasajo acorde a la magnitud de su figura, este podrá no disimular la congoja de unos hinchas con la garganta quebrantada luego de gritar 132 veces Moreno.

Entre los miles que dirán presente en el Estadio RFK, estará el argentino Christian Gómez, quien también hizo lo suyo con la casaca del United y conserva una profunda amistad con el récordman boliviano.

NEW YORK – There is an ongoing discussion taking place in
MLS circles that is central to what the league’s 34-game regular season will look
like in 2011.

In an interview with Soccer
America, MLS Commissioner Don Garber says a decision is being weighed between
“two approaches”: 1) maintaining the balanced format of 2010 in which every
team plays the others the same number of times; or 2) moving back to an
unbalanced schedule that promotes rivalries.

WASHINGTON – Ben Olsen will lead D.C. United into battle against Toronto FC in the final game of a three-month stint as interim head coach on Saturday night, and the close of that testing tenure is surely on his mind.

Yet the departure of Jaime Moreno is just about the only topic on his lips this week, as his longtime friend and colleague prepares to ride into the sunset after one final Saturday evening at RFK Stadium.
