D.C. United Eastern Conference final tifo

As I type this, things aren’t going terribly well for D.C. United on the field.

In the stands before kickoff, though, the Eastern Conference final was a great success. The team announced Sunday morning that every ticket was sold, and the supporters went above-and-beyond with this pre-game display.

The phrase, of course, refers to Bill Hamid’s shirtless screaming promise after United toppled New York in the first round of the playoffs. Whatever happens, it’s a strong phrase. I bet you’ll hear it again.
