Man, Eddie Murphy as Buckwheat was kinda funny, right? Anyway...

Recap's of D.C. United's loss to New York City FC from usMLS (with more here), the Washington Post and CSN WashingtonHudson River Blue has things from the Citeh Lite side.

The MLS summer transfer window winners (and losers) | The 91st Minute | Soccer Blog | Videos | Pop-Culture: Will Parchman seems to say essentially that D.C. United was bad because they acquired an old number 9 and should have bought more, which was apparently worse than the Colorado Rapids selling Shane O'Neill and then signing Sean St. Ledger.

Chris Korb's Knee is Good Enough to Fit in a Rally Car - Black And Red United: So D.C. United essentially stays radio silent from Thursday night to their tweet Saturday, with no preface on the latter, of an injured player in a rally car. OK then.

MLS: 5 players ready for a USMNT call-up: Kristan Heneage shows some love to Perry Kitchen, which makes me wonder if he turned Thursday's game off at halftime.

D.C. United's video preview from CONCACAF is amazing. - Black And Red United: ICYMI, this CONCACAF-produced video preview is worth clicking for the voiceover alone.

Today's Oferta: Pay $8 for two tickets for the match between Arabe Unido from Panama vs D.C. United from USA on August 19th at Maracana Stadium ($16 Value).: What appears to be Panama's equivalent of Groupon is offering essentially a Buy One, Get One free offer for this week's CONCACAF Champions League game between D.C. and Arabe Unido. This promotion will be approximately one more than D.C. United does, actually.

A DC United Anthem - Black And Red United: I dig the idea (and at this point, since we're not going to use Spinal Tap's "Gimme Some Money" anytime soon) and exercise in this.

Flashback: Rhinos offered John Harkes coaching job in 2004: I'm not sure if this is common knowledge, but apparently John Harkes could have been a coach a decade ago before finally taking the job coaching Cincinnati's USL franchise last week.

The #90MinuteTailgate: A Cathartic Plea | OTF Soccer: If you think having indifferent ownership hat won't throw money towards a moribund franchise that doesn't have a stadium is bad, know that it could be worse, not only in Colorado, but in this piece from a Chicago Fire fan/blogger.

USWNT vs. Costa Rica: Final score 8-0, Press scores hat trick as Americans dominate - Stars and Stripes FC: With a third star on their shirt, the United States women picked up their post-World Cup victory in fine form, flattening the Ticos behind a Christen Press hat trick and a Meghan Klingenberg goal in front of her hometown fans.

Real Madrid negotiating deal for Kovacic - The Offside Inter Milan: In partner club news, one wakes up Sunday morning if they're an Inter Milan fan and sees their top player (Mateo Kovacic) getting sold to Real Madrid after having him being dangled in front of Liverpool for two months? OK...

Bad Boys FC | Eight by Eight: Some of soccer's infamous moments, recreated by children and photographed. Adorable! And also, guuh Suarez.

Finally, if you're a march hound (and who isn't?), Homage in Columbus, Ohio, is going to release some stuff for all MLS teams, tweeting this preview:

Just putting it on your radar. So what else is up?
