Some of you have probably seen the Recreation News, a free monthly paper that gets circulated in federal workplaces. The July issue has an article all about how Freddy Adu is leading "the" DCU out of obscurity. I know, any publicity is good publicity, and I'm not complaining. I just found some of this stuff so funny I wanted to share it. Here are some of the real howlers: "One of the better kept secrets in a region not well known for its reticence in sharing confidential information is the DC United. If you think it's a new airline offering cheap rates from Washington, you probably aren't alone." "The DC United play in the 6 team Eastern Division, battling the New England Revolution, the Columbus Crew, the Harbour View, the Chicago Fire (get it?), the Metro All-Stars, and the Kansas team it beat in the final last year." "...remember Mia Hamm? and Brandi Chastain baring her sports bra after a victory in the 2000 Summer Olympics?" On DCU's acquisition of Freddy Adu: "The DC United finagled a deal with Dallas to get first pick so the team could select a hometown favorite." [Cue Meat Lovers fans shooting coffee out their noses.] "Adu is surrounded by a number of other good players, including defender Brandon Prideaux and left wing attacker Dema Kovalenko." No mention of Jaime, Christian, Benji, etc. Anyway, not much point to all this, just wanted to share a laugh before we play the Kansas team tonight.
