Copa Dope - Jaime and Some Other Stuff
Jaime looked pretty darn good out there, particularly his burst down the sideline, hurtling Uruguayans until he was felled by Diogo and nearly setting up an equalizer from distance in the late going. Though he may not be well-rested on his return to DC, at least he'll be full of confidence following his contributions to the Bolivian cause. Unfortunately for his nation, but fortunately for his club, he should be on a plane home before the week is out. Uruguay and Venezuela's wins put Bolivia bottom of the group and needing to beat Peru and get some outside help in order to advance. With the way this Copa has been going, I wouldn't put it past them, though at this point it looks unlikely. Combined with an American early exit, United could be back to full strength as early as this Sunday's match against the Dynamo.
