Hi. I’m beginning to dislike this rain. Work has managed to let me out early the last couple of Fridays and take me to movies, so I’ve seen A Quiet Place (pretty good) and Deadpool 2 (OK), so in case you need recs, there you go.
Spirit can’t overcome Chicago in rain-soaked 2-0 loss (us): Spare a thought for Jason and Caitlin, who spent half a day at the Plex Saturday dodging drops and the Washington Spirit’s performance as they lose their 4th in 5, this time to the Chicago Red Stars. Hot Time in Old Town has more, and Rose Lavelle’s work was enough to see her called up for United States camp apparently.
Pro Soccer Team Starts Public Push for Bolen Park Stadium (Loudoun Now): In which the COO of Loudoun United talks and elaborates on the logo. Also, there is a COO of Loudoun United now.
DC United soccer stadium, training facility in Loudoun overshadowed by infrastructure concerns (Loudoun Times): This doesn’t delay anything really; land prep appears to have quietly begun down there based on a driveby I did a couple weeks ago, but a note for those who go check out Loudoun United on game days I guess.
USA 1-2 Ireland: Well, that was a friendly (Stars and Stripes FC): I skipped this Saturday and I hear Bill Hamid wasn’t that good, which...shouldn’t be a surprise? ANYWAY...
Virtual internships are helping students get experience anywhere from the comfort of their dorm room (WaPo): What does this have to do with D.C. United? Well, come in and see!
Hey, speaking of D.C. United news and notes:
Soccer Supporters are the Punks of the Sports World (Fifty Five One): Nifty little write up.
A preview of José Andrés’ latest concept tops the list of May’s best new restaurants (WaPo): I guess some Audi Field things are here or something?
Ed. Yes, more Wayne Rooney links for your pleasure, or torture as you see fit.
So Friday morning Sky Sports said the deal could be done as soon as Monday, while Goff threw cold water on that possibility, while Wayne’s wife is impressed with his parenting acumen, and Steve Birnbaum may want to be his caddy.
Ed. OK, back to real life, and...
Your moment of Zen:
