Hi. Am working from home today, so I imagine I’ll be watching Hustlers at some point today. I hear it’s good!

On-loan DC United midfielder Chris Durkin gets first start at Sint-Truiden (MLS): Slightly incorrect as Chris started a Belgian league Round of 16 game if memory serves, but encouraging!

Editorial: $15 million here, $10 million there (Loudoun Times-Mirror): “It was further disappointing that no Loudoun United or D.C. United representatives attended the meeting to make their case.” is among many different pain points here.

Guest List: 5 People We’d Love to Hang Out With This December (Washingtonian): A recent D.C. name in the news is included in this whimsy.

U.S. Soccer defends controversial hiring policy as numerous youth coaching jobs sit vacant (Yahoo!): Lol, good work U.S. Soccer.

Barcelona vs Mallorca is the best game I’ve ever covered (Barca Blaugranes): Shouts to Renato for a well done piece.

Martin Scorsese on the Films and Books that Influenced ‘The Irishman’ (The Film Stage): This is part of the Director’s Guild of America podcast which is a pretty good series as is. The episode is funny and brief at 43 minutes, but the list is good to have handy.

Finally a nicely done mashup of the trailers and moments in movies in 2019. Enjoy!
