New, 3 comments

Daily D.C. United links, today on the Sporting KC game, CCL, David Beckham and the U.S. soccer hall of fame.

Happy Thursday, ladies and gentlemen. I hope your week is going smoothly. If you're anything like me, you're going to make up a fake excuse to leave work at 3 pm, then head down to the bar to watch some Europa League. You're not a real soccer fan until you skip work to watch Europa League.

Today's edition of Freedom Kicks includes a couple of Sporting KC previewish things, some notes on the U.S. soccer hall of fame inductees, self-promotion and some other notes from around the league.
