Le Vieux Grenouille

The old frog, Youri Djorkaeff, scored both goals in the MetroStars 2-2 road draw at FC Dallas’ new Pizza Hut Park in Frisco, TX. Djorkaeff’s second tally came on a looping shot from 25 yards out to beat Dallas keeper Jeff Cassar and bank in off the right post. The world cup champion was named MLS player of the week for his efforts. The draw, combined with road wins by Kansas City and DC United left the Metros in fifth place in the Eastern Conference, three points out of a playoff spot with 11 matches left to play. Metro starts its stretch run tonight in DC at 7:30pm on MSG. United will be without Freddy Adu, who suffered a sprained MCL at Chicago on Saturday. The Metros’ remaining schedule is almost exclusively within the East, though the team gets a break with two matches against league bottom-feeder Chivas USA. With all players returning to health, and without the distraction of the US Open Cup, the Metros should make the playoffs for the third straight season. In the last two seasons, the Metros have lost in the conference semifinals. The Metros' remaining schedule:
WED AUG 10 @ DC United
SUN AUG 14 vs. Columbus
SUN AUG 21 vs. Chivas USA
SAT SEP 3 vs. Kansas City
SAT SEP 10 @ Kansas City
SAT SEP 17 vs. New England
SAT SEP 24 @ New England
SAT OCT 1 vs. DC United
WED OCT 5 @ Chicago
SAT OCT 8 @ DC United
SUN OCT 16 @ Chivas USA

louis vuitton has their own market orientation, they emphasized on louis vuitton bag fashion design and top quality. They don’t want to win the market by sales promotion or set up many “outlets” in the world, even lots of women hope that Louis vuitton bags can have an outlet , but also lots women don’t think it is a good piece of news for them to hear that lv have outlets.
