Ronaldo rape accusation, new USMNT roster, and more: Freedom Kicks for 10/2/2018

Plus: Remember when DCU won the Open Cup?

OK guys, I have returned from a long wedding weekend in Vermont that involved quite a lot of driving and not all that much sleep, but lots of good food, good beer, and good times. But I’m kind of running on empty here, so if these Freedom Kicks get a little loopy...just roll with it.

I still can’t believe D.C. United won. Just ridiculous. Any time our beloved team is playing badly or losing or things just feel dire, I always remind everyone of that time we won the Open Cup during the Season That Must Not Otherwise Be Named.

DCU highlighted in Doyle’s weekly column. I missed the game (see above Vermont weekend), but now I think my friends won’t let me return to Audi Field anyway if that’s the necessary tradeoff for more 5-0 wins.

Ronaldo rape accusation might be the biggest soccer story in years, but it’s hard to tell how things will play out | Yahoo! Sports

I don’t know what to say about this except that I’ll definitely be following the story as it develops (or I guess re-develops). Because this really cannot be ignored.

That’s all from me today, friends. Enjoy this fall day that doesn’t really feel like fall yet!
