    DERO the best in MLS, has been for as long as I can remember when he first started with SJ Quakes, you knew he was a "special" player. Surprised they have not found a way to make him an american citizen, just what the USA needs and has been looking for in a midfielder..Dero keeps on rolling.

    About the US citizen part, that would be nice; but he's played for Canada and could never play for the US, citizen or not. I love it that De Ro is finally playing for DC United, the team that was set to launch his MLS career. I've gotten used to United having special players: Etcheverry, Moreno, Gomez. All worth the price of admission. Now De Ro. Sweet. Olsen is doing a good job with DC, and a shout-out is due also to Boskovic (what a service that was!) and Andy Najar, who would have been man-of-the-match for that game were it not for De Ro. DC is fun to watch again!
