Open Cup Awesomeness

The United States Open Cup First Round pairings came out today, a reminder of just how great this criminally underappreciated knock-out tournament is. The Portland Timbers drew a nasty-sounding outfit called the Bakersfield Brigade—an away fixture that sounds dicey at best. But by far the best match-up is this:

Lynch’s Irish Pub (USASA) @ Charlotte Eagles (USL-2)

That is just brilliant.
