Ladies and gentlemen!  Good morning!  Do you feel good?  I bet you do.  Leave your troubles outside.  There are no troubles here.  Here, life is beautiful.  The girls are beautiful.  The boys are beautiful.  Even the Front Office is beautiful.

And now presenting, the Freedom Kicks!

ExtraTime Radio podcast |  At the 30 minute mark, Bobby Boswell gets interviewed about why he left DCU the first go-around (he asked to leave), why he left Houston (he had nothing to lose), the puke on his jacket, and talking to the ref with his hand over his mouth.  Actually, a very fun interview.

SI Now: Abby Wambach says female athletes are held to a double standard - Video -  Canada is bidding for the 2026 Men's World Cup.  Do you think they'll insist on dangerous artificial turf for the 2026 boys, like they did for the 2015 girls?  Wombach doesn't think so.  Apparently, FIFA believes that a double standard is twice as good as a single standard, so what are you complaining about?

Dear John: Kelly's Irish Times: DCist:  If you'd like to roll on the floor, after rolling out of bed this morning, read this review of the men's room at Kelly's Irish Times pub cum dive bar over by Union Station.
