never thought they would print it, but there it was! Since I wrote it, I don't feel the need to post the link or give credit to the Post. Please note, I did NOT pick the title. Saturday, November 27, 2004; Page A29 Go Pick On the Redskins I am amazed that Tony Kornheiser sees the need to rip the only successful pro team in Washington [Sports, Nov. 18]. He writes, "D.C. United drew a total of 500 people to RFK Tuesday night for a free celebration of their title." What he failed to point out was that this free event was held on a workday evening during the middle of rush hour with less than two days of preparation. Kornheiser also complained about the way the team used Freddy Adu. But, according to USA Today, Adu's presence helped increase D.C. United's road attendance by 54 percent and increased the home draw by 11 percent. Adu was the third-highest-scoring player on the team and played in all the regular season games, starting nearly half of them. Instead of vilifying D.C. United and soccer in general, Kornheiser should consider dedicating his column space to dumping on Washington's other pro teams -- which are indeed pathetic.
