  DCU_Primary_COL LA_Primary_COL

Two of Major League Soccer's most-storied franchises square off in the nation's capital (7:30 p.m., MLS Direct Kick/Matchday Live) in an East-vs.-West battle.

There are plenty surprises in both lineups, everything from Landon Donovan and Perry Kitchen being held out of their respective 18s altogether, to Sean Franklin playing midfield, to Ethan White getting his first-career MLS start, to D.C goalkeeper Bill Hamid getting his first MLS start of the season.

SBI will be providing live commentary on the match from RFK Stadium, so please feel free to follow along and share your thoughts and comments with us throughout the game. Enjoy the action (commentary is after the jump):

    ANyone else having trouble with MLS Matchday Live? Every time I launch the player, it gives me this error message:

    Debug: Error Code = 2105

    I can’t seem to find a way to contact MLS, either.

    Header Goal Magee. Beckham’s corner kicks are deadly.

    Come on Galaxy …….

    I thought I heard it was blacked out on Matchday Live in the Soccer Saturday thread?

    jonk said in reply to bryan…

    “Normally I’d say you should be ok. But for some reason the MLS tv listings for today say that the game is blacked out in LA and DC on MatchDayLive (don’t know about Direct Kick’s blackout rules), which is really strange since there is no DC local tv listing for the game.”

    What an awesome looking crowd for DC tonight. They are good fans. I hope they get a stadium.

  7. chris says:

    beckham scissors, gets a yellow. forearm, nothing. he should be off.

  8. kdif813 says:

    Well that sucks! Fortunately I found a stream in some language that sounds like Arabic.

  9. Beckster says:

    Hamid has not looked good tonight. DC a bit lucky to only be down by one. Other than that, hard fought game that the ref needs to make sure he controls.

  10. Brian says:

    Nice dive Charlie

  11. Judging Amy says:

    def went down but gonzalez did put his hands all over him.

    not a smart move by omar.

  12. Zach says:

    Anyone else see Kirovski (or some LAG player) get a red after the final whistle? Or did I imagine that

  13. Zach says:

    maybe my terrible terrible stream messed with my mind, but I could’ve sworn that’s what I saw

  14. Beckster says:

    kirovski got the red…he was arguing with the ref.

  15. ... says:

    No, if a game is blacked out, you can still launch matchday live. All the games will be listed in the top bar, and the ones that are blocked will say so. It sounds like kdiff813 can’t even launch the player, so that’s some other problem (what the error code means, I have no idea).

  16. Brian says:

    No I was watching at home on FSN West. Kirovski was yelling at the ref and got a red card. I don’t really care cuz Kirovski sucks.
