D.C. United Head Coach Ben Olsen was on Elliot in the Morning, well, this morning. The conversation started off on the topic of draining blood from under your toenails, but moved to D.C. United's spirit in the locker room and performance on the pitch. Check out the great interview for yourselves.
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.
Recently, D.C. United reached out to our loyal and passionate Supporters Groups asking them to help us pump up the team up for 2014. RFK's weight room needed a facelift, and who better to complete the task than the TIFO masters themselves?
The District Ultras accepted the challenge and spent most of last Saturday night diligently painting the weight room in time for the team's return from Charleston. There is still more work to be done, and we'll have the big reveal for you soon, but for now, check out what the Ultras have been up to.
