Monday Freedom Kicks: Flummoxed in Frisco

We look back at the weekend for D.C. United and the Washington Spirit, some nice Rocky Mountain schmaltz and I'm Mr. Meseeks!

So weird being back after the bye. Let's seem if I remember how to do this:

Recaps of D.C. United's loss to FC Dallas from usCSN Washington and MLSBig D Soccer looks at things from Frisco.

HUGE HOME CROWD PROPELS SPIRIT TO 3-0 WIN OVER THE REIGN — Washington Spirit: In the first appearance for Ashlyn Harris and Ali Krieger back at their club after the Women's World Cup, the Spirit beat a Seattle Reign squad minus Megan Rapinoe and Hope Solo. Crystal Dunn helped lead the Spirit to third, two points behind the Chicago Red Stars for first place.

Crystal Dunn brings the fun that women’s soccer needs | SportsMyriad: Speaking of Dunn, Beau Dure writes a bit about her.

USMNT vs. Cuba, 2015 Gold Cup: Final score 6-0, Dempsey scores hat trick in thumping - Stars and Stripes FC: In the Gold Cup, Clint Dempsey went a bit off Saturday, as the United States men's team will face Jamaica in the semifinals.

Colorado Rapids defender tears up when he’s told he made the MLS All-Star squad for the first time | Dirty Tackle: If you don't remember Drew Moor, he blew his knee out last year in RFK trying to defend Luis Silva. This is really nice.

ASN article: Andrea Pirlo Signing Is a Shrewd Deal for NYCFC: Andrea Pirlo to Man City lite is nice, but Ted Philipakos is the surprising voice as to why.

Potential 2016 MLS Free Agents - Sounder At Heart: The folks in the PNW show us who would likely be a free agent at the end of the year for D.C. and MLS as a whole.

The best and worst value contracts from every MLS team | The 91st Minute | Soccer Blog | Videos | Pop-Culture: Well there is good news and bad news, and as far as D.C. United contracts go, not much surprise.

So last week, I gave those unfamiliar to it the advice that they should check out the Netflix series Bojack Horseman, whose second season premiered Friday. This week in animated television, Rick and Morty is about to release its own second season. The show, which Community creator Dan Harmon (of whom I am a big fan) is involved with, might be best described as Back to the Future meets Men in Black, with a dusting of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. The trailer for that is below.

Now go forth into the world.
