The beauty of the beautiful game (soccer, as if you didn’t know), is no matter the conditions, you can still play.
Snow, sleet, rain and mud, freezing cold, even sun, it is all good when it comes to kicking the ball around the pitch. As a kid, I played in all these conditions. Snow is the most fun, because it makes the game even harder.
So don’t let DC’s winter get you down, you can catch DC United’s season opener against the Montreal Impact this Saturday, March 7, at 3pm at RFK Stadium.
The weather should even be nice (comparatively), up to the mid-forties. Wear your scarves.
DC United enters the 2015 campaign with something to prove. They excelled in 2014 during the regular season, finishing with the third most points (59), but then fizzled badly versus the New York Red Bulls in the playoffs. Brutal.
Major League Soccer made a few changes for this season, expanding the league to 20 teams. Most notably they contracted Chivas USA (gone!) and added two new teams, Orlando City FC and New York City FC.
Get your tickets and get on the United bandwagon now.
