United takes a break

DC United takes an early season break at the Anschutz ranch. Coming off a disappointing stretch of games, this bit of R&R ought to help them clear their minds and renew their focus for the rest of the season.

Awaiting the traveling party, nestled in a leafy oasis of cottonwoods and aspens near the meandering South Platte River, was the 45,000-acre Eagles Nest Ranch, owned by the league’s primary investor, billionaire Phil Anschutz.
