I'd rather see her with the Freedom.

If Yokohama were to sign with DCU, she would be the first female player in MLS, but not the first female player on a Washington pro team. Kristine Lilly played for the indoor Warthogs many years ago.

And while we're on the subject of this tournament, let us notice the absence of a USA team. Why, you ask? Because with T&T hosting, FIFA gave CONCACAF only two slots. The geniuses who organized the CONCACAF qualifiying tournament set up the bracket so the USA and Canada would meet before the finals, and only one would advance (Canada advanced on penalties). Mexico showed it belonged in this tournament by losing to Germany 9-0 in its first game.
