Today is the Washington Nationals' Home Opener. So, naturally, we look back to that time Talon body slammed a sausage. Talon, along with other DC mascots, participated in the Presidents' Race on April 1, 2011, and if you ask us, he won.
Good Luck to the Nationals today as Nats Park opens it's gates for the first home game of 2014 against the Atlanta Braves!
March Madness is real people. The competitive juices are flowing not only on the field for DCU, but in the locker room. Captain Bobby Boswell organized a team bracket challenge, and we took it a step further. We chose three MLS veterans and three youngsters to compete against each other (editor's note: I'm rooting for team #Youngsters). So, here are the teams. The #Veterans: Centerback Bobby Boswell (31), Left Back Sean Franklin (29 as of today-- Happy Birthday @SFranklin5!), and Midfielder Chris Pontius (26). The #Youngsters: Midfielder Collin Martin (19), Centerback Steven Birnbaum (23), and Left Back Taylor Kemp (23).
Each morning, we will update the brackets and scoring so everyone can keep track, tweet at the guys and root on your favorites! Let the Madness Begin! CHECK OUT THE BRACKETS
When you hear the name Michael Seaton, what comes to mind? Speed, athleticism, potential? Well, how about Tango? That’s right. Michael Seaton is Tangoing with the Stars.
The Chamber Dance Project is producing a stellar show at the Kennedy Center in which gorgeous tango ballets will be performed, and in support of the gala, on April 10, Minister Federico Barttfeld, Head of Cultural Affairs of Argentina, and the Chamber Dance Project will host Tango with the Stars.
D.C. United’s Seaton will be dancing for United for D.C., while other local names such as Doron Petersan, winner of Cupcake Wars and Kate Michael, former Miss DC will be dancing for charities of their choice.
It was truly a day to unite! D.C. United's "A Day to Unite" event at Pinstripes in Georgetown was a great success thanks to our amazing Season Ticket Holders.
We revealed our primary kit for 2014 complete with a fashion show from the players, had new stadium renderings available to view, hosted a silent auction to benefit United for D.C., enjoyed bowling, bocce, food, and even a photo booth. The afternoon was spent giving our Season Ticket Holders and DCU players a chance to hang out together in a fun and unique setting.
Thank you to all the Season Ticket Holders who made this event so incredible. We are glad you enjoyed meeting this year's team and staff. We are grateful to have the best fans in MLS wearing Black-and-Red! Make sure you tag yourselves in our Facebook album from the photo booth.
The new jersey are on sale now at dcuteamstore.com.
D.C. United was not made aware of Simms' health issues until after the announcement of his retirement. We share the concern of all of Clyde's fans and send our thoughts his way in this tough time.
Clyde Simms gave it all for DCU. From 2005-2011, the talented midfielder made a significant impact with the Black-and-Red. It's a sad day when any player has to retire due to health reasons. We, as a club, would like to thank Clyde for his commitment to and passion for D.C. United and congratulate him on his wonderful and impressive career.

D.C. United Homegrown forward Michael Seaton is currently training with Inter Milan's Primavera, Inter's oldest Academy team comprised of players ages 17-20. Seaton, who was on loan with the Richmond Kickers for most of his first MLS season, looks forward to every opportunity to improve and develop.
Seaton, whose first touch for the First Team resulted in an assist in an international friendly vs. Chivas de Guadalajara, continues to impress and grow in front of his home crowd and hometown. Getting a chance to train with Inter's Academy is another chance for the 17-year-old to hone his skill at a high level.
Check back to dcunited.com soon for a Q&A with Seaton.
It’s been fan-driven since the beginning. Back in June, D.C. United and DC Brau combined forces to give you a delicious golden ale. Then, we turned it over to you to choose a name. Chris Pontius, Dejan Jakovic and Ethan White heard the top conteders, and after a few laughs, the three chose the winner. Since then, Donald Wine's submission of “the Tradition” has been a huge hit.
We heard you all loud-and-clear when you asked for more, and the brewers at DC Brau delivered. You asked for cans, and once again, you have your wish. So, on Monday, we turned it back over to you. After DC Brau chose three can designs, we left it up to you. Since Monday, we have had over 1,000 votes, with the winner running away with over 50% of those votes.
So, without further ado, the winner is…
