Hey, I’m back again, happy 4th or 5th!
Recaps of D.C. United’s 7-1 win over Toronto FC by us (with more from us here), WaPo and MLS. Waking the Red with the other end of the match. Pretty sure D.C. hasn’t scored anymore, but we’ll check this morning.

Meanwhile, this is something the team needs to address ASAFP:
