If progress on D.C. United’s stadium efforts can be gauged by comments from club officials, things are looking up.

Appearing on Comcast SportsNet at halftime of Sunday night’s match at RFK Stadium, managing partner Jason Levien said: “Last time I was on I said I was cautiously optimistic about the stadium. I am going to tell our fans out there we are ready to remove the ‘cautiously’ from that statement.”

Levien watched the game from the director’s box with city councilmember Muriel Bowser, the leading candidate to become the District’s next mayor in November.
