Charlie is Back

Great to See Charlie in Action

It is no secret that many of our fellow DC area supporters have such an antipathy for those denizens of the swamp that they have put their full backing behind Mr. Davies and his Revs in the cage match aka Eastern Conference Finals.

Of course, there was nothing but mirth as Metro Playoff Failure reared its ugly head yet again as BWP neglected to bother to find out what the yellow card accumulation rules were before doing something really really really stupid!

We always suspected that it must be something in the water in New Jersey.

Twist in the Buzzard Point Stadium Tale

Close to Finish Line

So Close to the Finish Line on Stadium

Last night’s news that soon-to-be-Mayor Muriel Bowser has announced that she believes we can get a new soccer stadium deal done by the end of the year while de-linking the Reeves Center swap from the deal has left D.C. United supporters puzzling over the ramifications.

We always knew there were going to be last-minute tweaks to the Buzzard Point Stadium deal, but this is something else entirely.

Fans Ready to Fight for City

Battle for Buzzard Point Heats Up

There is much more in the Jonathan O’Connell and Mike DeBonis piece in the Washington Post to dig into:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/dc-politics/muriel-bowser-says-she-will-remove-reeves-center-sale-from-dc-united-stadium-deal/2014/11/18/472a2e4c-6f73-11e4-893f-86bd390a3340_story.html

What we want to focus on today is the fact that Muriel Bowser has publicly put her full backing behind building the stadium while using public funds to do so. How she manages to accomplish this is going to be interesting to say the least

The Mayor-in-waiting said, “If we’re going to be a world-class capital, it’s important that we maintain the world’s sport, soccer, right here in the District of Columbia.”

We certainly concur with her assessment, but we vow to keep the pressure on until we see the spades hitting the dirt at Buzzard Point!

Moreno Foundation

Jaime Moreno and Eddie Pope Tonight

In case you missed it, these two D.C. United legends are teaming up to help Team Mathias.

Everyone is invited to come out tonight to Tysons for an autograph session to help this important charity effort!

Supporting Bill Hamid in Ireland

Rough Road Trip Ending

We were thrilled to see that Bill Hamid got a cap against Ireland yesterday, but it is a pity that his defense decided not to show up.

Our road trip crew was there to provide hometown backing and know that this was a valuable experience for the young keeper, despite the result.

US Soccer Foundation in action

Picture Perfect Play on the Pitch

In case you missed all the fun from the United Soccer Club’s Fall Classic, thanks to Matt Mathai and our photobugs we have plenty of photos of the fun created by an army of volunteers.

Thanks again for all who joined CAUSE (Community Action Uniting Screaming Eagles) to help foster a day of laughter and play! But we’re not done yet as another special event comes this Wednesday at Tysons.

Moreno Foundation

Jaime Moreno and Eddie Pope Help Out

Come join D.C. United legends Jaime Moreno and Eddie Pope as they team up for a special fundraiser for Mathias Giordano and his family this Wednesday from 5pm – 8pm at Lenkersdorfer Fine Jewelers in Tysons Mall.

Jaime and Eddie will be there signing autographs and handing out gold ribbons representing the fight to kick childhood cancer.

If you come by and donate $25, you get a ticket to Tyson’s Night of Giving Exclusive Shopping Event that will take place on November 23rd from 7:30pm – 10pm.

Lenkersdorfer Fine Jewelers will be supporting the Jaime Moreno Foundation, “99 Dreams 1 Heart”, with their mission to help support children suffering from cancer. 100% of these ticket sales will be donated to Team Mathias.

Mathias with Eddie Pope and Team

Mathias is a 13 year old boy from Leesburg who was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, cancer of the bone, in July of 2012. Over the past 20 months, he has endured biopsies, port placement, 26 rounds of chemo, 3 major lung surgeries, amputation of his right leg and 28 rounds of radiation. Currently, there are no more options for treatment.

Needless to say, Mathias is a strong warrior. His courage and spirit inspire everyone who is lucky enough to meet him. His smile lights up the room and his positive outlook is truly amazing!

Mathias continues to battle the ugly beast of cancer with poise and dignity. Cancer does not define this young man; he is the author of his journey.

United Soccer Smiles to Brighten the Day

Play

So Many Smiles at the Fall Classic

Don’t let a dreary Monday get you down. If you ever wondered how the efforts of D.C. United were received in the community, just look at all the smiles created at the RFK Auxiliary Field on Saturday!

Over 400 youth from 12 program locations gathered for a day of futbol fun, nutritious food and learning at United Soccer Club’s Fall Classic.

Trophies

Everybody is a Winner!

A huge thank you to all who devote their time to help the kids of United Soccer Club learn far more than just the joy of playing the beautiful game.

These coaches are incredible role models and the life skills imparted makes a huge difference in the lives of the children throughout our city!

Volunteers Bundled Up

Bringing a Bundle of Joy to Kids

A special thanks to those CAUSE (Community Action Uniting Screaming Eagles) volunteers who bundled up and stayed to help for the whole day!

Joined by students from Cesar Chavez, D.C. United Academy players and other volunteers, they did wonderful work setting up the tournament fields and manned various stations throughout the day to make the event such a success.
