Your fast is over, United fans. Tonight, thanks to the magic of internet streaming technology, you can watch your team in action for the first time in 2013. D.C. United is taking part in the Disney Pro Soccer Classic and the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex just outside of Orlando, Fla. In their first match-up of the tournament, the Black-and-Red will take on the reigning NASL (2nd division) champion Tampa Bay Rowdies. We've got the stream up above - and in another post just for the video - so you can watch it however you prefer.
Time: 8 pm
TV: MLSSoccer.com Ch 1, which we have embedded up above, and also right here.
Venue: ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex
Projected Lineup: You're kidding, right? It's a preseason game - I'm not even going to hazard a guess on this one.
What Are You Drinking?: I'll actually be indisposed during this one, so I can't really say whether I'll be drinking anything at all. Thankfully, it looks like MLS is archiving these preseason games on YouTube (or at least they did for the Desert Friendlies), so I'll be able to take the game in DVR-style.
As always, and for the first time for a D.C. United game in 2013, this is your place for pre-game, in-game and post-game discussion.
