After an enforced exile from the organized DC United blog universe, I have decided to rekindle my web presence and write about the team once again. Like Napoleon from Elba, I have escaped and will likely try to win a land war in Russia, or maybe just make really bad MS Paint renderings of Kurt Morsink. Hopefully, this will give me a productive outlet for defensive lapse induced rage, and substitute for twitter binges caused by an unwillingness to shoot from outside the 6 yard box.
My name is Jon, and I used to write the DC United blog on The Offside network. Since my departure, the blog has been taken over by a mysterious cabal of Russian oligarchs (speculation), and I was unable to communicate with its new absentee landlord to regain my rightful place at the throne. So, as all good putsches go, I am going to foment dissent in the best way I know how; making an awesome blog that people, like, link to, and stuff.
I also share correspondent duties on Around the League, a podcast on CSRN. I’m on pretty much every other week, but you should definitely add it to your iTunes podcast list.
Because I had to pay WordPress 40 freakin bucks to get this page to look how I’d like it to, you can expect some regular posting, with previews, recaps, and interviews, if I remember how to make that happen. I can promise you puns, jokes about horrible former DCU players, and historical and pop culture references that may require the use of google.
