And pouring one out for Rip Torn and (kind of) Andy Najar.

Hi friends, there was only one soccer this weekend, and it was disappointing? What is this, 2017?

Recaps of D.C. United’s 2-2 draw with the New England Revolution from us (with more from us here), WaPo, Flo and MLS. The Bent Musket has the other side of things.

Bruce Arena: DC United have lost touch with tradition at Audi Field (MLS): Bruce can get into character sometimes but this is on point. Pablo has more ($).

Andy Najar sufre grave lesión que lo alejará todo el año de las canchas (Diario): Andy was going to play in the Gold Cup for Honduras, got hurt in a pre-tournament friendly with Paraguay and the worst case scenario occurred: torn ACL, out for six months, his second such injury in three years. Heal fast and strong kid.

Top 5 MLS MVP candidates midway through 2019 season (MLS): Solid choices (including a D.C. player), but let’s face it, it’s Carlos Vela’s award to lose.

Rose’s Recognitions: Join us Thursday and Friday in Cincy (FC Cincinnati): Washington Spirit (and Ohio’s own) Rose Lavelle will be feted by her hometown, and will be around at halftime of Cincy’s game with D.C.

All For One: Turning The Page (TFC): Toronto FC took a look at Nick DeLeon’s return to Audi Field that for a nine-minute short is pretty good and worth checking out.

Rip Torn: Intense, Disturbing, and Very, Very Funny (Criterion): Like a lot of people, I became an admirer of Rip during the Larry Sanders Show and just before that in “Defending Your Life,” and the dude’s lived a life, that’s for damn sure. If you haven’t seen any of the Artie supercuts, here is part 1, and is very sweary in case you’re listening at work.
