We need to have a national conversation about Bill Hamid.

No. Wait.  We need a national conversation about Friday Freedom Kicks.

That's what we need. That's all we need.

D.C. United Trying to Figure Out How to Play Without Bill Hamid - WaPo: Psst. You and me. We know. We know that, to the extent that Bill Hamid was critical, it had something to do with the fact that DC's defense was, shall we say, porous. Dykstra has had his moments. He will have more. I remember declaring DC - once - the Dykstra of Columbia. Dykstra is capable of shining. Dykstra will find his zone. Don't you worry your pretty little head.

Soccer fans get chance to score in Pele memorabilia auction - AOL: In June, if you have a gazillion bucks, you can buy some Pele schmegma.

U.S. women’s soccer team still competing on uneven playing field | Miami Herald: Check out these snapshots of the field. F.U., U.S. Soccer. F.U.
