Black & Red Ready to Beat Red Bulls like Rented Mules

The Answer is Yes

Sweet Victory When the Parts Fall Together

The answer was definitely “Yes” as to whether Olsen’s Army was gobsmacked at seeing an own goal ripple the back of the opposition’s net!

Yet, it shouldn’t have been that surprising to the bouncing hordes that finally got to taste victory at RFK again as the team has definitely been making strides in the right direction.

Our Friends

We Never Forget Our Friends

Now that the inglorious streak has finally been snapped, what were some of your favorite moments from the match?

Two moments were particularly significant for us that might be lost amongst all the hullabaloo surrounding such highlights as the stalwart defending of the back line, Perry Kitchen playing like a man amongst boys and, of course, Chris Rolfe’s instant contribution to the offense.

Did you catch how Charlie Davies took a moment to acknowledge the Black & Red faithful? Even more important was how fans welcomed Clyde Simms and embraced the efforts to spread the word with #OURFRIENDCLYDE?

All Welcome All United

Grab a Flag on Saturday

Guess what? We get to build a winning streak at home at the expense of those vile Pink Cows in just a few short days!!

Jimi Has Been Busy

Roadtrip Guru Never Rests

While we are certainly focused on beating the swamp dwellers, we don’t want to forget that Jimi has been very busy putting together a host of fantabuolous treks.

We are halfway to the numbers needed to run a bus to Columbus over Easter weekend, so drop him a note at roadtrips@screaming-eagles.com and let’s watch the scoreboard at Crew Stadium light up again – this time with United goals!

Come On United (States and DC)

Bring a Camera to Lot 8

Picture Perfect Weather

Tell all your friends that Nicole is busy taking orders for what should be a spectacular afternoon and evening by the banks of the mighty Anacostia.

We will have quite the crowd at our Cherry Blossom tailgate, so make sure you come early to take it all in!

Bundled up at BMO

No Need to Bundle Up

You won’t need all the extra layers for the roadtrip to Philly in May, that’s for sure!

But you will need to hop on the bus fast as half of the seats have already been snapped up.

If you have questions, just drop Jimi a note at roadtrips@screaming-eagles.com and get ready for another memorable adventure to PPL Park.

Send Off Tim

Salivating for Turkey?

The wild match in Phoenix against Mexico just whetted everyone’s appetite for more!

Our first bus has already sold out and with all the area’s American Outlaws chapters joining in, this is going to be a very special trek. So don’t dally and choose your package now!!

Dancing and Singing in the Rain at RFK!

We Love You

You Didn’t Think that Wacky Weather Was Going to Stop US?!!

A tremendous thank you to all the volunteers who put on one heck of a tailgate in a seemingly never-ending torrential downpour! We may be biased, but no one in the league can match such dedication.

Denizens of Lot 8 refused to let our spirits be dampened by the wet as the DC Brau flowed and the burgers kept coming off the grills. Kudos to one and all for proving that the Black & Red colors don’t run!

Kuykenstrong

#Kuykenstrong Across the League

We know that Shawn’s response would have been “Bazilly!” to the tremendous outpouring across the length and breadth of the land in his honor.

Thanks to the efforts of Maggie Kolb to allow us the chance to participate in the #Kuykenstrong tribute in our own small way despite the elements. We were able to put the banner up at the beginning of the match and, of course, at the 28th minute.

Wild and Wet at RFK

Nest Will Always Be Rocking

Truth be told, we actually have enjoyed a long history of dancing and singing in the rain at RFK.

There is nothing like bouncing in the stands as the goals rain in! Nobody in attendance will ever forget Perry Kitchen’s post goal celebration.

Backwards Revs

Turn the Revolution Back

Fortunately we get a chance to see the continued progress of the team continue this weekend in what should be 70 degree sunshine. Woohoo!!

D.C. United vs. New England Revolution
Saturday, April 5th
RFK Stadium
7pm (Tailgate begins at 3pm)

Nicole will take your orders for what should be a packed house online here.

Our friends at District Sports had to move the Cherry Blossom Tourney in the deluge to the Bell and McKinley HS turf fields, but you can greet them as they join us on Saturday in Lot 8!

Get Ready for the USA

Club & Country Time on the Road

As we gear up to watch what Klinsi’s new braintrust has planned for Mexico midweek, our roadtrip director has been quite busy.

Jimi is taking orders for the ever popular Philly or Bust romp and if you want to go to Columbus to see DCU set fire to the scoreboard, drop him a note at roadtrips@screaming-eagles.com.

Special Note: If you want in on the USA – Turkiye Send Off Series roadtrip, you had better get your orders in pronto as these buses are going to be filling fast!

From Canadian Chill to Chicago Fire for United Fans

Smiles and Chills at BMO

Plenty of Cheer in the Chill

The spirit of the Black & Red fanatics who ventured to Toronto never wavered and a great time was had by all who were perched high in the East Stand!

It was an entertaining match against a much-bolstered TFC squad, but Olsen’s charges seemed up for the contest. Neither team held back and the clash of heads between Davy Arnaud and Michael Bradley was indicative of the ferocity of the battle at BMO.

Ryan Nelsen’s side may have just edged the contest, but those in attendance knew how narrow the margin was as the local fans left relieved and Olsen’s Army returned buoyed by the progress made in the side.

We are United in Toronto

We Are United

The trekkers appear to have brought the Canadian chill back with them to start the week out so bundle up out there! Never fear though, Springtime temps are forecast just in time to warm up for the Chicago Fire match at RFK this Saturday.

Nicole is already busy taking orders in all of our sections, so snag your tickets on our online store here. We are gearing up to provide a hot welcome to Mike Magee and company and take a full three points from the afternoon game.

Show the flag at BMO

Flying the Colors Proudly

It was great to hear that others were also in action for the Black and Red elsewhere as Michael Seaton and Steven Birnbaum were scoring for the Kickers in Richmond.

The Academy sides likewise had a successful weekend playing the Baltimore Bays. If you get a chance, come cheer them on this Sunday as they take on Bethesda-Olney at Richard Montgomery HS.

Thumbs are up in Toronto

Thumbs Up to BMO

We enjoyed the stadium by the lake, but would love to see our own built at Buzzard Point. So, if you are voting early please check to see which candidates support the stadium deal.

Don’t forget that you can always show your own support by spending a few moments on UniteDC.org to make your voice heard.

Kat in action

Got To Hand it to Kat

We wish Kat Cheshire all the best as she heads off on her new adventure. Through her years at United for D.C. her smile and cheerfulness brightened every outreach event and she will be greatly missed.  We know we will spot her running by somewhere in town and she has an open invitation to come relax at our tailgates!

From White to Green for Black & Red Fans

Black & Red Snowman

Last Snow Sighting of the SEason?

While our snowmen melt away and the team spends their last day (hopefully) indoors, fair warning to the travelers to Toronto. Our road warriors will be facing chilly temps, 15mph wind gusts and, of course, snow squalls at BMO!

Fortunately those inside the Beltway can snuggle by their computers and catch the 4:3opm match on Saturday on http://www.dcunited.com/live without having to don thermals.

Kat thanks

Kudos from Kat

Volunteers of all ages came out to help at the United Builds water station on H Street for the Rock & Roll National Marathon on Saturday morning.

The early risers showed tremendous endurance and were still smiling after serving thousands upon thousands of thirsty runners to cheers of “Thank You, D.C. United”.  Well done!

Raise your DC Brau

Raise DC Brau & Buzzard Point

Reminder to all you ballot stuffers, it is the last week to vote for the Best Local Brewery!

While you’re at it – head over to UniteDC.org and help with the push for the stadium deal. Every single voice heard on the issue makes a difference and every precious vote counts!

Bayern smiles

Plenty of News to Sift thru in Lot 8

Nicole is taking orders left and right for the Fire match on Saturday, March 29th and the early tailgate will be buzzing with all the latest news from the futbol world.

Who is happier with the news that Julian Green has been recruited by Klinsi to play for the land of his father? USMNT supporters looking for more young attacking talent or Bayern beancounters eyeing the burgeoning market here in the states?

How about the brazen graft of Jack Warner and his ilk? Or the latest CCL results as the league tries in vain to measure up to our wealthier neighbors? So come raise a pint with us and weigh in on all the issues of the day!

Come On United (States and DC)!
