Hihi. I am your Caitlin today. Caitlin is busy preparing for school abroad and gave up her day to Donald, and I offered to take it on now that I’m back in the land of the semi pseudo North. I’m home this week with my kid so Kicks are a little scatterbrained today:

How Wayne Rooney has helped transform DC United’s fortunes in MLS (Sky): This wasn’t a terrible read...up to a point.
Oh hey, here’s the logo for the proposed MLS team in Austin:
And I guess Jason would fire me if I didn’t put the trailer for the new season of It’s Always Sunny in here:
