Happy Tuesday, ladies and gentlemen. D.C. United's website was down basically all day Monday, which I can only assume is due to the large volume of traffic sent their way by the first edition of Freedom Kicks. Sorry, guys. I went to the site a few hours before this posting to see if they had anything for me to link up and it was still down. So, our team doesn't have a website. That's neat.
Today's edition of Freedom Kicks features a lot of links on bad things that are going to stop being bad very soon.

I know we had kind of a lol Sounders post yesterday, but I really think this is the biggest story of the season so far. It would have been Montreal's success if they didn't get smacked down by the Sporks this weekend, but them's the breaks.
