MLS: Rowdies Suncoast Invitational-DC United at Philadelphia Union Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports

Today is a brief respite from the watery precipitation, whether frozen or not, before we get to continue to water our mud over the weekend. One more preseason game until D.C. United kicks off their season! Here are the links:

Wayne Rooney scores, but D.C. United fall to Philadelphia Union - Black And Red United: D.C. United gets a nice goal from the Luciano Acosta-Wayne Rooney partnership early, but after some changes the Philadelphia Union storm back to give the good guys a loss.

Also, did the Union just forget to print their jerseys for the season, or what?

Lucho is right back where he was at the end of last season.

Cheyna Matthews named to Jamaica roster for friendlies vs. Chile - Washington Spirit: It isn’t just the three American Spirit players getting called up by their national teams; Williams is becoming a regular callup for Jamaica.

The NWSL’s partnership with A+E is over. Now what? – Equalizer Soccer: The optics and timing of this aren’t great, but there are actually some possibilities that NWSL could end up with a better TV deal because of this.

Good to see an old D.C. United homegrown player still being a key part of the Richmond Kickers.

This means that all of the USL Championship and USL League One (those are still terrible to say with my human mouth) will be available to watch on ESPN+ for those of you who want to follow Loudoun United or the Richmond Kickers.

Orlando City vs. New England Revolution, Preseason Friendly: Final Score 6-2 as Lions Run Riot Against Revs - The Mane Land: Uhh Revs, are you okey?

Nashville MLS team name is Nashville SC, new soccer logo revealed: Logo isn’t bad, and extra points for being an SC instead of an FC.

That’s all I’ve got, what’s up?
