Washingtonian shout-outs

Kyle Gustafson has been taking photos of D.C. United games for years for  He has also been running one of the best music (& sports) blogs in DC - - since 2003 and often posts his DCU-related photos there.  We like him.  

Recently, he was interviewed by and was very kind to D.C. United, Behind The Badge and you!  You can read the whole interview here, but below are the few excerpts that make us feel good about being us (and should make you feel good about being you!):

Favorite hometown sports team:

“That’s easy—DC United. It has the best front office of all the local teams and also the best fans. It’s hard to beat the atmosphere at RFK when United is playing. I went to my first Caps game this year and was really impressed by the fans. Everyone was wearing red and screaming their heads off. But then again, it was a Flyers game. Everybody hates them.”
Favorite sports bar:

“Summers in Arlington. I hate that it generally shows the soccer matches on the smoking side of the building, but the atmosphere is always great there.”
Local athletes you’d most like to see in a band together:

“Wow, that’s a tough one. I’m sure that no matter who was in the band, it’d somehow involve Luciano Emilio singing James Blunt’s ‘You’re Beautiful.’ ”
Favorite local music and sports blogs, besides your own:

“DC has such a robust blogging community, especially for sports. You have DC Sports Bog, Bullets Forever, Soccer Insider, Behind the Badge, Wizz Nutzz, and Mr. Irrelevant.
