Getting ready for that Shelter in Place, here it comes!
MLS pundits tell you their favorite MLS players of all-time (MLS): Lots of D.C. United players current and old here.
Speaking of an older D.C. United player, our thoughts are with John Harkes and his family:
My father-in-law couldn’t get tested because he wasn’t “showing signs”. Within 24 hours he is now being supported by a respirator. He is one of the “lucky” ones because there is a hospital bed and ventilator available but in two weeks time, the hospitals will be full.— John Harkes (@johnharkes6) March 21, 2020
Oh, and if you’re cooped up and have a console, D.C. has some content for you:

NWSL postpones 2020 season opener due to coronavirus (us): Farts. USL moved things back as well.
Two Americans celebrate Australian women’s soccer league championship (WaPo): And a Washington Spirit player mentioned too!
The 48 Hours When Liverpool’s Title Run Screeched to a Halt (NY Times): I’ll enjoy it when (if?) it happens, but Rory Smith’s work is great as usual.
Finally, watching movies with a kid in the house is a challenge these days; you want him to watch so you can do stuff, but not so much that he’s drooling in front of the 4K (we took three days to watch Frozen II!), but I was able to see A Hidden Life last week and liked it a lot. It’s tangentially about the life of Franz Jagerstatter, but it’s a Terrence Malick movie, so expect a lot of gorgeous shots, usually done at the point before sunset where everything looks nice.
