Hi. My thanks again to Donald for switching things with me. He can enjoy the United States-Jamaica game tonight while I...do other things!
USA vs. Jamaica, 2019 friendly: What to watch for (SSFC): Besides, Donald was putting up this thing on tonight’s Audi Field clash.
USA vs. France, U-20 World Cup: Recap and Reaction (SSFC): Meanwhile, a Chris Durkin-less Baby Nats squad did the thing against a good France team, and face Ecuador later this week.
Let Russell Canouse Sell your House (WJLA): Kudos for TV for paying attention to this, albeit a touch late.
Spirit’s Andi Sullivan making most of World Cup snub (WTOP): Well, the Washington Spirit lead the NWSL, so it appears to be working.
Watching Rose Bloom (The Athletic, $): Lots of Rose Lavelle previews ahead of the World Cup and well, approved!
As deadline nears, Loudoun United site will soon look like a soccer field (WTOP): Loudoun United is digging out the field demarcations now ahead of turf installation would should be this week.
In today’s “You Are Old,” let’s check in on Santino Quaranta’s daughter(!):

Joel Church-Cooper on bringing “Brockmire” to new heights by pulling Brockmire out of the gutter (AV Club): For all the TV going on lately (I finished Chernobyl last night), this piece on the show runner of the IFC show is worth a read and the show is worth checking out.
That’s all I have. Good times and safe travels tonight!
