United in being ignored

DC UnitedPoor D.C. United. After weeks of seemingly endless coverage of the Nationals’ first day and the opening of the new stadium, they’ve gotten barely any coverage for their opener today.

Yes, their opener is today. In the much-maligned RFK stadium. The most prominent thing I have seen about it is in today’s post in Capital Weather, which had a weather watch block for the opener. What a difference a week makes – unlike the Nationals opening day attendees, United fans will have a temp that doesn’t drop below 55 by game’s end.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
