A sign winter is almost gone

Well, not exactly but I have been missing the trips to RFK and watching United play, moreso than in previous seasons. Luckily, the MLS preseason is about to gear up.

MLS has the distinction of staging the lengthiest regular season in all of U.S. pro sports — which also means it bears a mighty brief offseason. So after winning its fourth league championship just over 10 weeks ago, D.C. United has barely had time to catch its breath before regrouping today at disheveled RFK Stadium for the start of training camp.
