D.C. United TV rights, Lazio fans want to ban women, and more: Freedom Kicks for 8/21/18

Plus: Luka Modric is great.

Hey, y’all. This is an exciting week because I’m gaining a new niece! Maybe she will better appreciate the stuffed Talon I got for her big sister once upon a time, though I haven’t gotten her any baby DCU gear from the new team store yet (still kinda annoyed STHs don’t get a discount anymore tbh...).

Anyway, while I wait to level up as an aunt, let’s talk soccer.
