Also, it’s Monday, let’s go home.

Well I watched my kid sleep and took a nap myself, so what happened?

Recaps of D.C. United’s 3-1 loss to the Houston Dynamo by us (with more from us here), MLS and WaPo. Dynamo Theory covers the away team’s first away win of 2017.

Spirit go toe-to-toe with Thorns, but drop 2-1 decision (us): The Washington Spirit had some finishing problems last night that came back to haunt them in their loss to the Portland Thorns. Both first tier DC soccer teams are in last in their respective leagues. Stumptown Footy has the victors’ perspective.

USA 2-0 Costa Rica (Stars and Stripes FC): In Gold Cup action, I went to bed and missed the USMNT moving on to Wednesday’s Gold Cup Final where they will play Mexico yet aga...wait, what? Jamaica won? Yep, Jamaica won at the Rose Bowl. Good on ya, Reggae Boyz.

North American sports culture helping MLS clubs buy into analytics (ESPN FC): This actually peeks under the hood of D.C. and Stewart Mairs a little bit and is worth the time reading.

Durkin named to U.S. U-17 camp (DCU): Chris Durkin appearing in camp was a formality made official late last week, and in related news, Durkin was named 10th Best Under 20 player by the USL.

Indonesian Entrepreneur Denies Resigning from Inter Milan (Netral English): Gee, I can’t imagine who this is referring to...

Swansea City dismiss shock reports Indian Formula 1 boss is preparing £110m offer to buy Premier League club (WalesOnline): Nor can I imagine who THIS is referring to...

[D.C. Untied 2.14]: In which Filmi likes poop and washed up center backs. Kid because I love!

Buzzard Point Development Concept Plan (NPS): The Park Service put together their final concepts for the land near Audi Field.

Chennaiyin FC extend Raphael Augusto stay (Sportskeeda): Hey, in ‘where are they now?’ news...

Petke unleashes best-ever press conference (RSL Soapbox): So after their match with Sporting Kansas City, RSL coach Mike Petke got a little animated. Personally I’m glad to see his thoughts on players getting hands around their throats evolving over the last 3 years, so good for him.

Transfer Window Ship’s Log (Sounder at Heart): Our friends in Seattle are also perturbed by the radio silence of the window thus far, in a humorous take.

Finally, let’s go home, shall we? Here’s a supercut of movie characters saying this. I think supercuts are kinda done maybe.
