    BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. Old Skool Noir Homme . -- The underdog of soccer underdogs, D.C. United, has advanced to the U.S. Open Cup Final. Uniteds 2-0 victory over the Chicago Fire in Wednesdays semifinal accomplished that despite the worst record in Major League Soccer. D.C. scored its fourth win of the tournament. It has three victories in MLS competition this season, along with 15 losses and four ties, but its unbeaten in the U.S. Soccer Federations all-comers tournament. United will visit Real Salt Lake in the final on Oct. 1. The outcome made up for a 4-1 loss to Chicago in MLS play on the same field on July 20. The Fire outclassed D.C. from start to finish. "It was a spanking," said United forward Dwayne De Rosario. "It was tough even to watch." De Rosario was absent for that game, recovering from an adductor strain. Fully healed, he came back to action last week, and scored the first of Uniteds two goals Wednesday. "I wanted to set the tone," De Rosario said. He did, pouncing on a ball goalkeeper Sean Johnson bobbled, taking two steps to the left, and booting it home from 4 yards in the 44th minute. Then came Nick DeLeon, Uniteds other threat, and also injured until recently. He scored in the 48th minute, ripping a low 13-yard shot to Johnsons left after slaloming through a pair of defenders. D.C.s Joe Willis made six saves. "The last two games, weve looked like a team," United coach Ben Olsen said. "Weve been able to understand this is extremely important. Our best shot at a trophy is in the Open Cup." The Fire pushed hard in the last 20 minutes, but failed to score. Willis made a difficult save on Alex in the 76th minute, then watched Austin Berrys deflected shot carom off the goal post a minute later. In the first 27 minutes, Willis solved Chris Rolfe and Alex, after which Uniteds midfield began to take command. But the goals were still stunners. "They got a little bit of fortune tonight," Fire midfielder Jeff Larentowicz said. "They score (the first goal) on a mistake, and after their second, I dont know how we dont score." For United, playing for a championship in a dismal season is heartening. "Its coming together a little late, but it feels good," DeLeon said. "Three wins (in MLS), but were playing for a championship nonetheless. "You get rewarded sometimes." Neither Chicago nor D.C. United is above .500 in MLS competition, but advanced to the U.S. Open Cup semifinals by beating a combination of MLS and lower-level professional squads. United had beaten Richmond of the USL Pro circuit, and MLS foes Philadelphia and New England, to earn the right to play Chicago. Air Max 97 Homme Grise . "Four now," Carl Gunnarsson told the Leaf Report proudly following a 5-2 victory over New York on Tuesday night, the clubs fifth straight at home. Air Max 270 Flyknit Pas Cher . The nimble-footed quarterback got his wish, dashing through the snow and a weary defence all the way into the NCAA record book. . Oyama had six birdies and two bogeys at Kintetsu Kashikojima in the event also sanctioned by the Japan LPGA Tour.

HOCKENHEIM, Germany -- A stopwatch malfunction meant Nico Rosberg was stationary for three seconds longer than necessary while serving his five-second penalty at the German Grand Prix.Rosberg was hit with the penalty for forcing Max Verstappen off the track at Turn 6 while battling for second position. Drivers are required to serve in-race time penalties during pit stops -- with the team unable to touch the car until the penalty has elapsed -- and Mercedes served Rosbergs at his final pit stop.However, when the car entered the pit box the stopwatch failed to start and Rosbergs total stationary time -- including the tyre change -- totaled 12 seconds.Even in a Formula One team with all the high tech, if you get to take out the instruments that you usually dont use like a stopwatch, they can fail and the stopwatch didnt start properly, Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff explained. Once we realised we had to take it safe and this is why it took longer thhan normal. Air Max 97 Og Neon. We could have also counted, one-thousand-and-one, one-thousand-and-two, one-thousand-and-three ... but we relied on the stopwatch and it let us down.Although Rosberg would have lost track position to the Red Bulls regardless of the time lost due to the stopwatch failure, he would have resumed closer to Verstappen in the final stint.At the time it wasnt frustrating because I didnt know, Rosberg said. It just felt like I was sitting there forever. Now in hindsight, its not that frustrating either.There were so many things that went wrong today that it was just one more small thing that actually didnt make a difference in the end because I wouldnt have been able to get the Red Bulls anyway. They were on the super-softs and they lasted quite well in that last stint, so that didnt make a difference.
