Loudoun’s Williams leaving? Saborio celebrating & more: Freedom Kicks for 5/17/19

And a legendary record producer gets...something?

Hi. I’m filling in for Jason today for the sake of ensuring his fingers don’t go raw at the content generation overload he’s facing. Things are generally light also:

A couple of things on this: Onalfo as a TD is probably encouraging for the Revs who are a dumpster fire; second, Williams has quietly taken a Loudoun side that started becoming a team a month before the season (and has been dressing 16-17 man rosters for half of their season so far), and has taken them to a chance at a level record Sunday afternoon. Should Williams go, Gus Teren (D.C. United’s U-14 coach and current Loudoun assistant) would presumably take the helm.

Sheffield United funded by £3m loan from Osama bin Laden’s family, court hears (Telegraph): I, uh, sorry?

Next up, former D.C. and more significantly Real Salt Lake forward Alvaro Saborio:

Sabo left MLS after 2016 to sign with Saprissa, retired after three months in 2017 only to ultimately unretire and sign with second division Costa Rica side San Carlos in 2018. He led them to promotion last year, and defeated Saprissa this year to capture the Primera title. Decent arc if you ask me.

Next up, a Griffin Yow update:

Yow’s goal was his fourth in the CONCACAF U-17 Championship as the United States lost in extra time to Mexico 2-1. Now the only question is if he goes from Bradenton to Houston, or comes home for Loudoun Sunday.

Next up, more quirky USL one-off jerseys:

Last is a teaser of a docuseries starring Rick Rubin. You may not know the name, but you’ve seen the beard in many a Beastie Boys video, and he’s produced records for them, Jay Z, U2, Johnny Cash and the like. I’m sort of intrigued by this:

Anyway, that’s all I have, someone’s got to do some packing for a trip.
