Charlotte’s bad names, Matthew McConaughey, and Metro standing: Freedom Kicks for 12 December 2019

Soccer, go!

MLS: FC Cincinnati at D.C. United Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Hello and welcome to Thursday! There is a new episode of Filibuster waiting for you in your favorite podcast platform, so why not give that a listen as you commute into work or as you start your day? Personally I am glad that there wasn’t much snow yesterday, and hopefully we can stave off the roadway madness that a snow entails for at least a few more weeks. To the links!

These....are a bunch of pretty bad names. Monarchs is already used in American soccer, albeit at the D2 level, Gliders is right now, Charlotte Town is hilariously England, and Charlotte Athletic is only mildly better. Given those, I guess give me Charlotte Crown? Although I bet they just go with Charlotte FC.

Always good to see Michael Bradley staying in MLS, even if his stupid team beat D.C. United in the playoffs this year in a very stupid game.

It always sucks to see a team close up shop and get moved, especially since the Fury had stuck it out for so long.

No, no it isn’t.

That’s all I have today, what’s up with y’all?
