I don't think we can relax. They got hit this year with the double whammy of injuries and players leaving the team. I don't see any reason to think the won't come back. They have a great class coming in, and some of the young kids yesterday showed promise.

Plus, they haven't forgotten how to battle. some programs never figure that part out.

They were missing three stars Amanda Poach, Jordan Angelli and Kiki Bosio. We played the whole first half missing Michelle Enyeart, Keelin Winters and Elli Reed. So how were they at a disadvantage actually (homefield advantage notwithstanding)?

Great moment from the color commentator during the game when she gives big kudos to Portland and it's great crowds and soccer savvy fans. I'll see about writing it down and posting what she said. Maybe someone already mentioned it on P- Nation? Anyone else catch the comments?

Add the injured Kendra Chandhoke and Rachael Rapinoe into the discussion -- the Pilots have been playing much of the season without 5 players that most team would die for. Injuries and departures are a fact of life. So is the fact of being crushed 4-0 by your archnemesis.

Santa Clara will not fall apart over one bad season = my guess.

Good point to add Kendra and Rachael into that discussion. Also T Wally I distinctly remember Cat Whitehill telling all the viewers to notice how our fans were standing and singing and drumming and constantly moving she said "this the way they cheer in Europe and the rest of the world. American soccer fans this is the way soccer fans should act."

We may pat ourselves on our own backs so hard we get bursitis, but Pilots fans are connoisseurs of all things soccer. I am constantly amazed by the respect, insight, loyalty and just plain fun everyone shares on this site and at Merlo. The super soccer IQ of those in the stands is a major attraction for me -- always a learning experience for this fan.

I don't have Direct TV, but with Comcast DVR you can copy a recording to VHS. Perhaps that will also work with DTV.
