Major League Soccer got it right with D.C. United and New York. Other rivalries have come and gone and there?s more than a little dust getting kicked up in the Rockies and in the Pacific Northwest, but there?s still no feud with more fire than the old-school throwdown between the Nation's Capital and the Big Apple in the Atlantic Cup, which resumes Thursday (8 pm, ESPN2/Deportes).
Oh, wait. The two sides can?t even agree on what to call this rivalry, let alone how to somehow keep it civil on the field and in the stands. Go figure.
