The Adventure of Links
The blogroll is now up and running. Yes, there are soccer links, primarily to the soccer blogs I like to read. Most, but not all, contain some MLS coverage, and most, if not all, think DCU is in trouble this year.
There are, of course, links to DCU and MLS and the like.
And there are links to Nats blogs. I know that some DCU people are upset that the upstarts are in "our house." This is stupid. DCU has good attendence figures, but there's always room at RFK. Baseball fans include a high number of families. Families whose kids will look over the right field fence and see four championship banners. Some 10 year old might see the snazzy red and black Nats/DCU board over the plate. And they might come to the game. DCU gets exposure via the Nats, and this is a good thing.
Yes, there are pitch concerns, though I don't think we've had a repeat of the trapezoid incident. And I certainly think that the grass should always be cut in order to aid the offsides call. But we seem to be coexisting right now. The only thing we could ask is that someone in the media notice that Barra Brava and the Eagles Nest have been getting the stands rocking for years.
