MLS Cup and US Soccer being mean: Freedom Kicks for 6 December 2018

And a surprise at the end!

MLS: Knockout Round-Columbus Crew SC at D.C. United Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Today’s Freedom Kicks is a little late, but for good reason! It brings you a special treat at the end, so read on through and enjoy MLS Cup week!

The fact that Zlatan beat Wayne Rooney and had no effect on the LA Galaxy’s actual fortunes this year is a disgrace. As Ron Swanson would say:

And here is your surprise for being good and dear readers: an extra Filibuster this week! We talk to friends from Stumptown Footy and Dirty South Soccer is get the lowdown on why we, enlightened D.C. United fans, should root for either one of their teams in this weekend’s game. Give it a listen!
