D.C. United arrived in Dallas on Friday afternoon to incredibly hot conditions, with the temperature reading a steamy 103 degrees. With temperatures expected to be in the mid-90s at kickoff Saturday evening, the heat is sure to play a factor in the contest at Pizza Hut Park. One player, in particular, seemed unreasonably happy to encounter the warmer weather, as Brazilian midfielder Fred was heard to say "this is more like it," as the team boarded the bus for the hotel.

WASHINGTON — Getting through the grind of an MLS season for the first time is no small feat. And at the midway point of 2011, D.C. United’s crop of promising youngsters are learning to cope with the demands of professional soccer.

Defenders Perry Kitchen (pictured above) and Ethan White have played the most, getting in 14 and 13 games, respectively, while forward Blake Brettschneider and defender Chris Korb have figured into the mix.
