Ben Olsen...Unmarked

Ben Olsen all mic'd up during the DC-NY game. On a side note, to see the US Open Cup package and now this (presumably) recurring series, a word of praise to Lee Burrows, the video producer of this material, on the improved quality of these videos.

RFK Stadium gets destroyed in new X-Men Trailer

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.

The real EJ, a guy with a good heart on his sleeve, plus Parke, also Caskey

In the extras is a great segment on Jeff Parke as well, a tremendous guy who is missed greatly in Seattle. The film itself is the most thorough doc on an MLS team, but also any pro team, ever produced. Abraços, to EJ and Jeff, and Alex.

History Friday: Remembering the Washington Whips

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.

Even more D.C. United previews

If you want to hear me talk about D.C. United even more, you can watch me on World Soccer Radio! It will also be archived here if you want to view it later.

The Real Eddie Johnson

Very interesting soccer film, perspective on MLS and Eddie Johnson. Either love or hate him. Amazing Sigi Schmid tirade.

Dejan Jakovic introduced to S-Pulse

14 minutes of Dejan Jakovic and some other signees at a S-Pulse press conference. Kind of like Mr. Baseball, but if Tom Selleck had persistent injury trouble.

Monumental FC: Barra Brava & the Charity Shield

video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player

Dave Johnson is back with another episode of Monumental Network's weekly Monumental FC, looking at soccer in DC. This week, they focus on one of D.C. United's original supporters groups, La Barra Brava, and the annual charity game Barra Brava FC plays against the D.C. United U-23s.

Dave Johnson will host a weekly online TV show about soccer - here's the first episode (updated w/ link)

UPDATED: The episode came out on Thursday, so be sure to get ready for tonight's Chivas USA game by checking out the premiere episode over at Monumental Network.

It's called Monumental FC (would "SC" have killed them?), and it will be on Ted Leonsis' newish Monumental Network, which is essentially angling to be an all-DC online sports network. If you head over to Monumental Network's D.C. United section, you may notice some familiar names (and stories) among their coverage, which - thanks to a partnership with SB Nation - largely comes from right here at B&RU. The first episode features a rooftop interview with United backup 'keeper Joe Willis and a talk with the president of Friday's friendly opponent, Chivas de Guadalajara.

Here's hoping the show's a success! And that we'll have lots of new content to cover as a result, naturally.

New York Red Bulls vs DC United

The game started well for the hosts and seemed to be a just a matter of time until they could score. However Henry's misses, Espindula's unlucky post hits and a save in the last minute from DC United's goalkeeper kept the score level.
