Man, that was hot Saturday. I hydrated a whole bunch. Hope you did the same.
Recap's of D.C. United's 2-2 draw with the Philadelphia Union from us (with more from us here and here), MLS (with more from them here and here), the Washington Post and Goal.com. Brotherly Game has your Doop needs covered. To sum up the time in the away end:
Even the turf at RFK Stadium is bad - Brotherly Game: I mean, anomalies are anomalies, and it doesn't smell like the poopoo Delaware river.
Home Field Advantage: Ben Olsen’s RFK | District Dig: But it's our crappy turf dammit!
Getting to Know Brandon Williamson - Duke University Blue Devils | Official Athletics Site - GoDuke.com: In case you want primers on Academy kids going to non-Maryland schools, I have the thing for you.
Carli Lloyd, Hope Solo lead USWNT to 1-0 Olympic victory over France - Black And Red United: Is #USWNTRunTheWorld the thing to use? I don't know, I don't read AO emails.
Frank de Boer replaces Roberto Mancini as Inter Milan boss two weeks before the start of the Serie A season | Daily Mail Online: Over in Italy, it looks like Inter Milan has parted ways with Roberto Mancini. And, in an update from this, at the Cosmos match:

Finally, Edgar Wright has directed Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead, but is also a very nice guy and a movie fan, and recently compiled a list of 1,000 of his favorite movies. As anything with 1,000 in it, it can be daunting, but it's worth checking out, and I'm a slowly warming fan of Mubi as a streaming service.
Go out and have a cornetto on me today.
