D.C. United News & Notes

*The United-Dynamo match is among four sporting events taking place tomorrow night in the city. The Orioles-Nationals exhibition at Nats Park starts at 6 p.m., Wizards-Heat is at Verizon Center at 7 and, 30 minutes before the MLS kickoff at RFK, right next door at the D.C. Armory, the D.C. Armor, an indoor football team, makes its home debut against the Reading Express. (Great scheduling by the sports commission, eh?) Halftime entertainment is Chuck Brown, the godfather of Go-Go. Top that, DCU!

*Reminder: DCU's under-16 squad will face a Real Madrid youth team at 4:30 p.m. tomorrow at RFK. A ticket to the MLS game gains entry to the preliminary match.

*Dynamo new forward Ade Akinbiyi, 34, will not be available until next week.

*According to DCU, defender Greg Janicki (head laceration), defender-midfielder Devon McTavish (head laceration) and midfielder Fred (hamstring) are now probable, midfielder-forward Santino Quaranta (hamstring) is questionable, and goalkeeper Josh Wicks (hip flexor) is out.

Much more soon.....

Who would have thought DC could support two professional football teams? Will the new team host any games against the Islanders or Battery?

Please Lord, don't let arena football/go-go halftime show outdraw DC United.

No worries - most people will be staying home thanks to the NCAA Final Four which starts at 6:07pm. I'm certain that many people will consider that at the top of their list when surveying the sports offerings.

Not me - I'll be at RFK, starting around 4:30.

We're talking about an American Football team -- different sport, not the one we call soccer.

My understanding -- based on comments in this blog about PG United -- is that DC does not support two professional football teams. The Redskins are Maryland's team. People from DC and Virginia don't go out to Landover for games.

It's not in the city, but the Freedom are in action too, hosting a friendly in Germantown vs UVA to benefit breast cancer research.

Attendance will improve after this weekend. The warmer weather will get more people out. No worries. I'll be there tomorrow. What basketball?
