Whenever the DCU schedule is finalized on CSN, we now know there will be no Harkesy.

Santino Quaranta is also coaching this year, so he may or may not be available to man the booth. Who do you want to see alongside Dave Johnson when Comcast SportsNet goes live from RFK this year?

Sneak peak...but at what?

DCU Team Store just tweeted this picture. Is this a teaser for a new third kit?

DC United 2014 season preview on Total Soccer Show

Just in case you haven't had enough Black and Red United in your earholes today, I was on the most recent episode of the Total Soccer Show, giving them a preview of D.C. United's 2014 season. The team at TSS is doing a preview episode for each of the 19 MLS teams, so give them a listen!

Washington Post (Almost) Apologizes For Sweeping Generalizations Based on Faulty Poll

My reaction to this article is similar to that of WaPo commenter Purple Drank (I know, I know): "This is a lot of words just to say, 'we think financing the land purchase is the same thing as financing the stadium, because we don't know the difference between the two concepts and know poll respondents won't either.' You asked a bad question that doesn't reflect the proposal. The poll responses may reflect other attitudes about soccer and soccer stadiums, that doesn't mean this poll provides meaningful data."

DC Trades Ethan White and #1 Allocation Order Spot to Philly For Jeff Parke and #6 Spot in the Order

Let's hope this goes better than the last two players we acquired from Philly, Pajoy and Ruiz. I'll miss Ethan - he's a great kid and had a lot of promise. Goff seems to think they're angling for Edu, which is disappointing. Hoping we'd grab him Does this mean we're going for Birnbaum in 2 days? Discuss.

FIFA confirms 2022 World Cup in Qatar will not be held in summer

Isn't this just dandy? Folks on the internets are wondering about the legal recourse of bidders who did not get the Cup because they put a bid together for the summer. I'm interested as well, although I doubt that will stop FIFA. We keep giving them money hand over fist, and they'll keep taking it. At least there won't be a World Cup break in the middle of the MLS season, right? :-/

Ives says we're in for either Birnbaum or Mullins

No Dean?

Thoughts on MLS from The Designated Player at Grantland

I don't always like what Grantland does, but they've made an effort to follow MLS more than ESPN has. Here's a great article from Graham Parker, The Designated Player, with a lot of nice DC tidbits.
