I'm aarghful, and when I'm aarghful I want to write about Kind and unKind and I've promised myself to not write about Kind and unKind when aarghful, so here, a wrap-up of yesterday's MOCO primary results for those who've been playing along, plus a word of advice to DC United's Kevin Payne: make a congratulatory phone call to Vincent Gray today. I've no idea if Vincent Gray is any more interested in finding a site and a way to build a new stadium for United than Adrian Fenty was, but he certainly can't be less interested than Adrian Fenty.
Well, Payne should call Gray, but probably a wasted gesture:
Challenger Vincent Gray isn’t offering any promises,
either. The D.C. Council chairman was asked during a recent “social
media” Q&A session what he was doing to keep D.C. United. Gray
started out by claiming a “strong desire” to hold on to the team, but
literally four seconds into his YouTubed answer, Fenty’s opponent in the
upcoming primary appears to realize that he needn’t bother pandering to
“Constructing a new stadium... is a very expensive proposition,” Gray said. “We’ve been in a recession. We just haven’t had the ability to pay for a stadium or contribute to a stadium because we’ve been investing our money in trying to keep the basic services in the city going.”
Rockville United? No. And Redgate would be impossible to get 20K people in and out of. You know what would work? That empty field across 355 from MoCollege; build a new (and needed) Metro stop that would serve MoCollege primarily and the stadium secondarily. Know what else? Fuck-Me Jig.
Sharp as an arrow Orpheus
Points his music downward.
Hell is there
At the bottom of the seacliff.
Nothing by this music.
Is a frigate bird or a rock or some seaweed.
Is a slippering wetness out at the horizon.
Hell is this:
The lack of anything but the eternal to look at
The expansiveness of salt
The lack of any bed but one’s
Music to sleep in.
