  • A certain American is the 13th best U-20 player in the world, according to one list. You know what? We'll take it!

  • Maybe this is a good thing:
  • Nice to see him back. That's quite a long recovery:
  • More Pugh to Washington: "The youthful Spirit, who are missing four members with ACL injuries, have started the NWSL season 1-3-1. They’re in last place in the 10-team league. Pugh isn’t likely to win a championship this year. But Washington isn’t sitting pat. The club plans to announce the acquisition of a European playmaker soon. Dunn, the 2015 NWSL MVP, is at Chelsea now but intends to return to Washington. She’s only 24. And the construction of D.C. United’s new downtown stadium, Audi Field, may wind up altering the future of two clubs. It’s tough for the Spirit to make much of a dent at the SoccerPlex, which sits nearly 30 miles from the city center. The stadium accommodates around 5,500 fans, and an average of 3,782 turned out in 2016."

  • Deets about U.S.-Mexico.

  • A wide range of smart thoughts.
