New blog

Welcome to my brand new blog: DCUMD

This is a soccer-only spinoff from my other most recent blog The Good Fight. As of right now, I plan to continue the TGF blog for all other non-soccer topics like the Redskins, politics, movies, and whatever other dumb stuff I've written about over the years. But this blog will just be about DC United and other soccer topics. The reason for the change is that no one freakin reads my TGF blog anymore, and I figure a big reason for that is that it skews all over the place instead of focusing on just one topic. Soccer was one of the few topics that I ever received response to, so I guess I'm just a whore for readers by devoting an entire blog to soccer.

Anyway, the name of the blog is obviously a combination of DCU and UMD, and it's inspired by the two current DC United players and Terrapin alums Marc Burch and Dominic Mediate. I need to do some more research to see if any other former DCU players were also Terps. I am a big fan of DC United, but I am not much of a fan of Terrapin soccer, although I wish I had been while I was going to school there so I could have seen these guys play.

It's probably going to take me a little while to get up to speed on this new blog, but I plan on it being a pretty frequent thing. Hopefully I will get the design finalized by the end of this week before the playoff push!
