A ticket for the doubleheader costs the same as a ticket for a single United game.

On the subject of the Freedom and WPS, my business-oriented feature story that will appear in Thursday's print edition is now available to read.

What? No Marta game at RFK?

Excellent article. Lots of background info mixed with significant details concerning the new league. I love the idea of a double-header with visiting teams from the same city.

Re: the backline discussion, to think that Namoff is the old man of the defense(turns 30 in May) by a fist-full of years but he'll be the youngster in the offense when he makes that overlapping run into the attacking third is just weird. Sorry no attempt at deep analysis, just a quirky observation.

DadRyan, good luck with the rashy little one. I'll send prayers and good vibes both, in case one of them gets stopped and searched on the way over to ya'.

I give the league 3 years before it fails. I know we all want it to succeed, but lets be realistic.

Maybe we could get the whole fam to ride out to RFK that day? Maybe swing by 1350 Penn and grab Fenty on the way... cruise down past the baseball park, link up with the river walk trail and right on into Lot 8! You know show em what they threw away playing games with DCU....;-)

Dude, will I still be able to roast a bowl at halftime if Obama is in the house?

Posted by: DadRyan | March 4, 2009 8:29 PM | Report abuse

Consider me humiliated.

"Roast a bowl." Dude, I haven't heard that term since 1981. And I'm thankful that you, dadryan, are the one to cause the flashback. Well, uh, er, maybe not "flashback," more like I heard someone say it. Once. Yeah, that's it...

Maude Lebowski: What do you do for recreation?

The Dude: Oh, the usual. I bowl. Drive around. The occasional acid flashback.

I'll be surprised if WPS lasts 3 years.

Freedom home dates are a key component of the Prince George's stadium proposal. Concerns that WPS won't last long enough to fill those stadium dates won't help matters.

In a previous thread, someone suggested that a Cold War theme might be used to promote the Freedom-Red Star game. That got me to wondering whether Macy's is, or should be, a Chicago sponsor.

Also, it appears that the temporary stands on the far side will be the cheap seats. That should ensure that there will be at least some people in them, thus avoiding the problem of everyone sitting on the same side as the cameras and making the stadium look empty, as so often happens during MLS telecasts:

You know, the first time I say the Macy's logo in the former Hechts, I thought it ironic that a Communist symbol was in a store where shelves were full. But the Chicago star has six points.

The Freedom need to realize that many folks buying the tickets are older, have bad eyes, and can't read that stupid seating chart on their page.

Now if Macy's were to acquire Manischewitz, then perhaps Chicago would have a potential new sponsor.
