Danny Dichio: A Groin Concern

If you're a Danny Dichio (http://toronto.fc.mlsnet.com/players/bio.jsp?team=t280&player=dichio_d&playerId=dic279722&statType=current) fan Saturday's game had to make you a little nervous.
I mean, you had to like how he opened the scoring, pouncing on Stephen Keel's (http://www.coloradorapids.com/Team/PlayerBio.aspx?PID=64) attempted clearing and rocketing a volley into the top corner.
Dichio's funny. Some days after a goal he'll act like he's just a blue-collar grinder who scores goals more with luck and hustle than with skill. But sometimes I think even he doesn't quite buy that line of reasoning. After Saturday's game he matter-of-factly said that the moment Keel's header bounced his way he knew he would bury it.
Anyway, the scene that unfolded just before half time had to concern TFC fans: Dichio pivoting away from a defender, then hitting the ground and clutching at his groin muscle. Yes, the same sore muscle that kept him out of the team's last home game against Los Angeles and limited him to 36 minutes against Houston last week.
