Hi. I write today from Vermont, where my wife and I have explored such things as Hill Farmstead Brewery, Maple Syrup Festivals, and flirtations with snow, because Vermont. Anyway, away we go:
D.C. United is starting to find itself, still struggling to find the net: Goff takes a look at where we are, but, and this is my opinion only, flirts around concepts rather than anything concrete.
Abby Wambach arrested for DUI in Portland - Stars and Stripes FC: Oh Abby, you could have dropped a name and got a dozen free rides in the process. But that's not the kicker...
USMNT stars forget the first rule of Twitter, mock Abby Wambach's arrest - Stars and Stripes FC:...as foreign born US players take a little bit of glee in this.
Sunderland 0- 0 West Bromwich Albion: Black Cats Slip Further Behind in Fight For Survival - Roker Report: In partner club news, Sunderland and West Brom do nothing, and share a point in the process. The Black Cats have a game in hand on Norwich City but are also four points behind and stuck in the last spot in relegation at the moment.
Inter Milan 1-2 Torino: Now a fight for fourth - The Offside Inter Milan: In more partner club news, Inter Milan get a PK goal from Mauro Icardi, but in the second half saw dismissals to Miranda and Yuto Nagatomo en route to a home loss to Torino. Inter is in 5th, a point behind Fiorentina and six ahead of AC Milan.
Not ready for retirement, Union’s Fred finds himself a unique job | PhillyVoice: Guys, playing for D.C. United means you will be a coach at some point.
Hristo Stoichkov defends his safari kill pics by claiming he fights to protect endangered species: As a Liverpool fan I try to avoid linking to The Sun as a general practice, but when it includes former D.C. United and Chicago Fire player (and Barcelona icon Hristo Stoichkov), you can't ignore it. Said safari pics are in that link, so proceed accordingly.
The Deranged True Story Of Heavy Metal Parking Lot, The Citizen Kane Of Wasted Teenage Metalness: Back in the 80s when there was a Capitol Centre, two guys filmed a bunch of tailgating kids outside a Judas Priest concert in the hopes of doing something with the film. They never did, but the footage floated around for years and local writer Dave McKenna gives us the oral history on it that we so desperately need.
It's Monday. Don't forget to layer up (wait, that part's for me I think).
