D.C. United stadium, Andy Najar, and Perry Kitchen: Freedom Kicks for 6 October 2016

Soccer, go!

Peter G. Aiken-USA TODAY Sports

D.C. sports fans: It’s OK to show some Spirit - Black And Red United: Really, its ok. You can like soccer and women's sports too!

Here's how you'll drive, park and bike to the new D.C. United stadium - Washington Business Journal: Some of this information we have seen before, but some of this information is new (at least to me), such as the fact that the team might provide a transit subsidy equal in value to the parking subsidy typically provided to season ticket holders.

New Buzzard Point condo to offer upscale and moderately priced units - The Washington Post: More condos in the area of Buzzard Point, if you'd like to offer to host the B&RU crash pad.

Perry Kitchen reaping the rewards of facing challenges outside comfort zone - ESPN FC: Perry Kitchen is with the USMNT, and gets a good profile from ESPN's Jeff Carlisle. (Warning: Autoplay video!)

"El estadio Olímpico es el mejor del mundo": Nájar - Diario La Prensa: Speaking of former D.C. United fan favorites, Andy Najar is getting close to coming back from injury, and he gives an interview with the local Honduran media.

CONCACAF could rebrand after 'toxic' past, says new president | Reuters: I mean, yeah. CONCACAF'd is used in all sorts of different contexts, both on the field and off, and none of them are good.

The Chicago Fire are terrible and desperately need to make big changes | FOX Sports: They've been sitting in neutral for years, and people try to make up Veljko Paunović and his performance this year as something that is building, but all I see is the same team. In MLS, you can make big leaps from year to year and even within seasons (both of which Ben Olsen has proven), and the fact that the Fire haven't just proves even more that they are stuck.

Atlanta United to Start MLS Season in March 2017 at Georgia Tech’s Historic Bobby Dodd Stadium | Atlanta United FC: Not a surprise, but both 2017 expansion teams are starting the year at temporary homes while their new ones are under construction. Bobby Dodd Stadium does have some size issues, however, so it will be interesting to see how they fit a soccer field in that stadium.

FC Dallas and RBNY: Full organizations and empty seats | The 91st Minute | Soccer Blog | Videos | Pop-Culture: I don't criticize other teams attendance, because United's attendance has been similar in the past and could be similar in the future, but this article is a good examination of why two of the most exciting teams in MLS can't draw.

That's all I've got. What's up?
