The Red Bulls opened Red Bull Arena the same way they closed Giants Stadium, with a convincing victory in front of a cheering crowd.Saturday night they christened their brand new stadium with a 3-1 victory over Santos FC of Brazil before 25,000 screaming fans in their final tune-up for the Major League Soccer season.“I can’t put it into words,” said defender Mike Petke, who scored the second goal. “There came a point this week that I had to stop smiling and realize we had a game tonight. … Tonight was a special night. However, the season starts next week and that’s going to be a special night as well.”

1. MLS free agency 2. AC Milan 3. American players abroad

*Davies is supposed to return to training today. Seriously. He was involved in a car accident that killed someone, did this to the car and left him with more broken bones than a "Jackass" DVD. I'm convinced of this: Charlie Davies is Wolverine. The other losers Liverpool Bayern Munich Sergio Kun Aguero Rioting Bulgarian fans
