Road goal

The only team to score a road goal on the opening weekend in MLS - barring some last-minute heroics for Chivas USA - was the Chicago Fire. Cuauhtemoc Blanco buried a stoppage-time equalizer as the Fire escaped Salt Lake with a point in a 1-1 draw.

Afterward, RSL coach Kreis admitted that Blanco made a special play, but also took a swipe at the Fire's best player.

It was about one special player who made one special play and didn't do really anything else the entire game - except run around and whine.

ADD: Papi scored! Chivas USA pulled out a 1-1 tie as Maykel Galindo scored in the 84th minute at FC Dallas. That makes two road goals in the five games played this weekend.

Chivas scored after all, with a Galindo tieing goal. Galindo came off the bench in the 2nd half and you really got to wonder why Harris got the start over Galindo if Galindo wasn't hurt.

Galindo isn't 100 percent, and neither is Wicky or Eskandarian or Mendoza or Zotinca... well, Zotinca's at about 10 percent.

Kreis wishes he had a player like Blanco to 'walk around and whine'

RSL was lucky to escape with a point. Really pissed about that.
