This will be a great benefit to the team if the D.C. athletics world ever organizes an all-sports tournament in which every local franchise must play every other local franchise in every sport. Also, can’t wait to see Logan Paulsen on ice skates.

See a full gallery of soccer imagery here, but really, the head-bouncing video is the best part.
