In this week's edition of #TBT, we'd like to stroll down memory lane with D.C. United's Re-Entry draft selection Bobby Boswell. The defender, who spent the first three years of his MLS career with the Black-and-Red was once famous for more than his soccer skills.
At age 11, Boswell was on Nickelodeon GUTS! He may have cheated his way onto the show, and he may not have won in overall points, but the MegaCrag is all that matters anyways, right?
What a great day! So much DCU love.
Appreciate all those who have welcomed me to @dcunited. Looking ahead to great things for this team next season.
Each year, adidas releases a new official match ball for MLS, and this year, we're going Brazilian!
The matches have been set. Who will you be cheering for, and which groups do you think have the toughest road to the second round?
As D.C. United prepares for its first match in Indonesia (Friday, December 6, 6:30 a.m. ET), we look back at another offseason trip to an Asian nation. In 1997, as winners of the 1996 MLS Cup, the Black-and-Red was invited to the Sanwa Bank Cup. The Cup, which ran from 1994-1997 was a single-match in which the champions of the J League would go head-to-head with the champions of a foreign league.
Ahead of our match against Persib Bandung tomorrow t 6:30 pm local time (6:30 am here in the states), let's take a look back at the Black-and-Red's first stop on the Indonesia tour-- Jakarta.
While you were sleeping, the team departed from Jakarta and headed towards Bandung, where they will play their first friendly tomorrow morning (our time). Here are some of the tweets and Instagram posts coming from the squad as they arrived and checked out the view.
