Busy weekend up ahead.

1. DC United home opener versus our dear friends the Fire. Expecting a rather fraught game for backline.  Hey all ya gotta do is score one more than the other guys right?

2. USMNT versus El Salvador. I figure we play down, I mean respect our opponents to the point we nearly lose but squeak it out at the end. 

3. Going to try and finish the Glen Cook books “Shadows Linger” and “Sweet Silver Blues” this weekend. Shadows is part of the Black Company continuum and is pretty bleak military fantasy, I read it because I think that the characters are really well drawn, placed in interesting (if dark) situations and Cook is an excellent story teller. Sweet Silver is a fun send up of the Hard Boiled Private Investigator genre. Cook sets it in a Middle Earth-esque world, has a hard livin and jaded PI as his main character and even throws is a living dead guy who reminds me of Nero Wolfe. Fun and entertaining stuff.
