Freedom Kicks: D.C. United links for April 1, 2013

USA TODAY Sports

A new way to start your mornings: With freedom.

Happy Monday, ladies and gentlemen. I'm Kevin McCauley from the soccer mothership, Cartilage Free Captain and Stars and Stripes FC. I also live in the District and support D.C. United, so I figured I'd contribute around here as well. This is the first edition of Freedom Kicks, which will run every morning, Monday through Friday. We'll provide some morning reading and give you a place to talk about whatever off-topic stuff you want to talk about.

Today's initial edition of Freedom Kicks is obviously light on D.C. United-specific stuff because of the lack of a game this weekend, but this will probably be slightly less of a grab bag in the future.
