Washington Freedom settles for WPS draw

In its first Women's Professional Soccer game since making changes to its coaching and technical staff, the Washington Freedom conceded a late own goal and settled for a 1-1 draw with defending champion Sky Blue in front of just 2,491 spectators, the New Jersey club's smallest crowd of the season. The Freedom (5-8-6) remains a point out of the final playoff spot heading into the final five matches. On Saturday, the club will visit the first-place Gold Pride (12-3-3) in California's Bay Area.

JofA-ish... please tell me the club doesn't play the Go Go's during warm-ups or post-game.

Washington Freedom plays pop and some sort of techno (I think that's what those crazy kids are calling it these days.)

I've put in a request for them to crank up some Creed. And A-Ha.

You had me until A-Ha. Have you noticed, at the Plex, that The Sun Always Shines on TV?
