Hi, I’m subbing in for Jason who is in the midst of doing some insane content, so best to let him have some time to do it.

United acquire Targeted Allocation Money from Sporting KC: D.C. United did another one of those things, perhaps to pay down someone now or in part to get rumored, possibly maybe probably not fullback Joseph Mora. Who knows.

Orlando City SC vs. DC United | 2018 MLS Match Preview (MLS): We bemoan whether Darren Mattocks will play but the lineup Orlando trots out is anyone’s guess as they’re missing a few key bodies.

Frame by frame, note by note – All in check for D.C.’s homegrown on the roam (Beats and Rhymes FC): Hey, Bill Hamid checks in from Denmark, and he’s got some darned fine musical tastes if you ask me.

Rapinoe goal sees USWNT past Germany in 2018 SheBelieves Cup opener (us): Megan Rapinoe’s 17th-minute goal was enough to see the US get a good result in tournament play.

Most underrated signings ahead of 2018 MLS season (MLS): Hey, there’s a D.C. United guy in it!

Q&A On The Future Of Soccer In The U.S. (Athlete Network): Look, there’s only one place to get a Shawn Medved shoutout today, so get on it.

Finally, Josh Gatt, formerly of Minnesota United FC and the Colorado Rapids, and late was a Chicago Fire trialist, found out the devastating news that his wife has been diagnosed with thymic carcinoma (the thymus is near the thyroid, below the base of the neck). Having had some experience with a loved one who received a similar diagnosis, this is something that can possibly be remedied with surgery and periodic medical treatment. As of this writing, the campaign is about halfway to the goal. I’ve given, and hope you do the same if it compels you (his GoFundMe is here).
