Freedom Kicks: D.C. United links for April 4, 2013

Ed Zurga

Daily D.C. United links, today on the Sporting KC game, CCL, David Beckham and the U.S. soccer hall of fame.

Happy Thursday, ladies and gentlemen. I hope your week is going smoothly. If you're anything like me, you're going to make up a fake excuse to leave work at 3 pm, then head down to the bar to watch some Europa League. You're not a real soccer fan until you skip work to watch Europa League.

Today's edition of Freedom Kicks includes a couple of Sporting KC previewish things, some notes on the U.S. soccer hall of fame inductees, self-promotion and some other notes from around the league.

I'm pretty sure they play one of the league's most conservative systems at home, too.

No word on whether or not a rendition of 99 bottles of beer will be sung at the induction ceremony.

Well, that was a bad finish.
