Hi, I’ll be your Caitlin today. I don’t kill it like she does, but I’ll give it a shot. Since today is the last day for England’s transfer window, if you have a rooting interest, feel free to visit the SBN mothership for more. As I’m a Liverpool fan, I’ve had the vapors lately, so forgive me.

Injuries, set pieces haunt Spirit in 3-2 loss to the Courage (us): Caitlin was at the Plex last night, and saw the Washington Spirit dress 17 players, have two more leave to injury, before losing to the North Carolina Courage. Pretty much sums their year up right now.

Bill Hamid: Gloves Off (Eight by Eight): Everyone’s favorite next United States goalkeeper talks about the League he’s in and the Leagues he wants to go to...someday, right?

With an eye on the future, Kickers reunite with Worra (Richmond Times-Dispatch): Still on the topic of D.C. United goalkeepers, Travis Worra talks about the opportunity to play for the Richmond Kickers a bit.

USMNT players realize the importance of Costa Rica World Cup qualifier (Stars and Stripes FC): The United States men’s team talk about the Ticos ahead of tomorrow.

US Soccer: Not a progressive bastion (Al Jazeera): DC and their sponsorship is mentioned in a larger and somewhat interesting piece about how U.S. Soccer rolls or doesn’t roll these days.

Why “Zodiac” remains David Fincher’s best film to date (Film School Rejects): Fincher turned 55 Monday, and this look at his 2007 film is not bad. Sidenote: it’s a film I will always watch when on.

Go forth and drive safe to Jersey today, if that’s your bag.
