It appears to be Wednesday again. I’m losing track as I’m only home for two days, sandwiched between two weddings. In preparation for an October 2.5 week trip to India (or Bharat should you be extremely inclined), I attended a 4-day Indian wedding last weekend in New Jersey. I now have some sweet henna to show off at a wedding in the Midwest this weekend. Here’s hoping my continued unavailability leads to a repeat of D.C. United’s spontaneous goal-scoring form. To the kicks!
D.C. United Loan Defender Jacob Greene to Loudoun United FC (D.C. United): The average age of D.C. United just increased again as another young prospect secures some play time at Loudoun.
Team of the Matchday: Miami, Orlando continue rise in Matchday 30 (MLS): D.C. United’s DPs find themselves on this list.
A reminder that D.C. United is in rare company this weekend playing during the FIFA international window (at least they’re not Miami):
Messi in Miami: Where does MLS stand in the big picture? (MLS): Speaking of Miami, the team, or rather a particular member of said team, really invites continued frequent discussion on the status of Major League Soccer as a whole.
Colorado Rapids part ways with head coach Robin Fraser (MLS): This writer is of the opinion that Robin Fraser was not the cause of the Rapid’s failed attempt to challenge D.C. United’s 2013 MLS-worst season. More changes will be necessary for the Denver team to return to relevance.
The RFEF apologizes to the world of football and society (RFEF): Yeah… it’s going to take more than an apology to right the wrongs this Spanish federation has committed.
In other news… I thought this Twitter account would be taking a break – @RealTimeWWII has been “live-“tweeting World War II since 2011, and when this August culminated the account’s second run, I imagined at least a year (if ever) before it would start up again. Nope. August 31st came, and the author has restarted the journey back to the Third Reich’s invasion of Poland. I cannot recommend this twitter account enough. Now is an excellent time to see World War II unfold over the next 6 years as if we were reading the events live.
That’s all for today. As always, get kicking in the comments!
