Last night was all about D.C. United’s new jersey, and today is all about us all trying not to get washed away by rain. In other years, this could have been two feet of snow or more; this year, it is a metric ton of rain.

D.C. United doesn’t have to worry about that, as they’re still in Florida for the last of this first round of preseason games. The gamethread and how-to-watch will be coming up shortly.

To the links!

Yesterday was all about D.C. United’s new jersey, which I like! The pop of red on the arms is nice, the three stripes on the shoulder actually makes sense for D.C. United even if everyone has it, and there isn’t any grey on it. Jason and Adam were at the event, so we’ll hear more about it later today.

Always good to see Jaime Moreno sporting D.C. United colors.

Brian Straus goes through all of the new jerseys this year and apparently decided to neg each one of them. D.C. United’s “critique” is that its not quite as good as the 1996 jerseys? Sure, okey.

Even if the team signs Aaron Maund, they are still thin on a backline that will lose at least Joseph Mora for around a month this summer.

Things have taken a turn for the bad regarding Nashville’s stadium recently, between this and the mayor not being fully committed.

Awesome to see this partnership renewed!

That’s all I have today, hope that you all stay dry!
