Freedom Kicks: D.C. United news and links for April 23, 2013

Daily D.C. United links ... or not? Everyone took the day off yesterday. Today's stuff on the Spirit, the Canadian Championship, MLS's standing in the world and Sunil Gulati.

Happy Tuesday, ladies and gentlemen. Your Freedom Kicks are late because I have some kind of demon virus. It turns out I didn't exactly miss anything, since the D.C. United media took Monday off so that they could properly sulk and cry. They'll probably be back to work today and tomorrow. We have literally no United-related links to present to you today, but I hope you'll live.

Seriously, this site produces half of the D.C. United-related content available on the internet.
