RFK Stadium gets destroyed in new X-Men Trailer

13

In a case of getting kicked when you're down, the newest trailer for the new X-Men movie features the typical explosions and dramatic music that is par for the course of any action movie. What is not typical, however, is your local soccer team's dilapidated stadium being destroyed (or starting to be destroyed) in said trailer. Honestly, I'm actually kind of suprised they think that RFK Stadium would make it that far into the future.

History Friday: Remembering the Washington Whips

1

While the Washington Diplomats, affectionately known as the Dips, get all of the fame, the first member of the old NASL from the District of Columbia were the Washington Whips. In 1967, the year before the NASL was founded, the Whips were the imported version of Aberdeen FC and played in the United Soccer Association. That season, the entire 12 team league were foreign teams playing under American names. After playing the inaugural season of the NASL, the Whips folded, but their fun name (and even better logo) live on. Watch the video to see some more pictures from their brief history.
