Monday Freedom Kicks: Muted by Sound...ers

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

We look at the weekend for the local team, gird our loins for the national one, and a minor update to a movie mention.

Man, the soccering just continues to soccer in a way that few can recall. I mean, even the drabbest game had a bunch of drama in it. So how about we dig in?

Recaps of the weekend at RFK from usMLS (with some bonus tracks from Pablo), Goal.comIvesCSN WashingtonDistrict Sports PageWaPo and UnitedMania. The fine folks at Sounder At Heart look at things from the other side.

RICHMOND 1, WILMINGTON 1 - Richmond Kickers: Down a level, Richmond got a goal from Hugh Roberts to secure a draw at Wilmington and maintain their hold on second place in the USL PRO. Their game Friday with Charleston was rained out, makeup date TBD.

2014 World Cup exposes soccer haters for what they really are - The Washington Post: I don't like to Mike Wise as a practice but when I do, it is to shine a light on those who breathe through their mouths.

Did you miss the results yesterday? Well, we have you covered, both here and here.

Doug Hicks bids farewell to Washington sports - The Washington Post: A longtime D.C. United front office member part of the 2nd annual front office purge reflects on his time in DC before going to the Chicago Fire. Safe travels Doug.

World Cup 2014: Tim Howard became key to U.S. soccer thanks to short memory - The Washington Post: Rick Maese on the backstop to US hopes.

Ex-Maryland stars Graham Zusi, Omar Gonzalez shine for the U.S. World Cup team - The Washington Post: Goff on a couple of former Terps who could play roles in the game tomorrow.

Watch: Anxious Brazilian subway riders learn of Chile PK result | SI.com: Pretty self-explanatory, but damned if it isn't still entertaining regardless.

Kino Lorber: True Confessions Heading to Blu-ray: A couple of weeks back, we discussed Once Upon a Time In America and a commenter (whose name escapes me) was frustrated with the lack of availability of the 1981 DeNiro film "True Confessions" on Blu-ray. To you sir, I hope you find this information useful.

On a side note, the Columbus Crew and FC Dallas played yesterday, a rescheduling of the game from Saturday after Stu Tudor, a Crew fan and fire department member, was struck by lightning during a storm Saturday night. Thoughts and well-wishes to a speedy recovery from all of us at BR&U.

It's Monday, one more wakeup until the U.S. plays Belgium (and of course, a thread for today's games is on the way).
