Nielsen an All Star

MLS today announced the final 7 MLS all stars who per the MLS collective bargaining agreement will receive their all star bonus but will not be dressing for the game against Manchester United tomorrow night down in Houston. While the Wizards have no one playing in the game, they did have someone named as one of the 7 inactive all stars. That was goalkeeper, Jimmy Nielsen, who led all MLS players in fan voting. Seattle had 3 players named to the inactive team, with Colorado, Columbus, and New York all adding one a piece. Two of those selections I wasn't that impressed with on this list, and that was Freddie Ljungberg and Robbie Rogers who both are having unimpressive seasons. Kei Kamara got snubbed from being named to the roster, and Michael Harrington certainly had a case as well. But congrats to Nielsen on being named to the "inactive" list. For Wizards fans it's the best of both worlds, Nielsen gets recognized, and they don't have to worry about him potentially getting injured in the game.
