    Congratulations to Richmond Kickers for being the final PDL team in the Open Cup. It would be nice if some company would sponsor the tournament like Budwiser has done for the the English FA Cup. US Soccer has done very little to keep this wonderful competition at its deserving best. With almost 20 clubs in MLS, there will be more desire to win this trophy as silverware becomes scarcer.

    C Zee, if you look at the dreadful attendance numbers you'll know why no top corporate sponsor is looking at this as an investemnt.
