D.C. United vs. New York Red Bulls

Greetings from cold, rainy, breezy RFK Stadium. We’ve uncovered a new shade of gray. Blech. It could be worse: Parts of central Pennsylvania is looking at12 to 18 inches of snow.

No worries, for soccer is on the agenda tonight as D.C. United hosts the New York Red Bulls for the 57th all-time meeting in league play and 67th in all competitions since MLS launched in 1996. (United has won 37, lost 21, drawn eight.)

To get you ready, here are the links to my Sunday feature about world traveler Maicon Santos, my Saturday feature about food-conscious MVP Dwayne De Rosario and the DeRo front-page presentation in the print edition.

D.C. Sports Bogger Dan Steinberg takes a look at United’s “Nobody Likes New York” marketing campaign.
