Did I ever tell my Barron Trump story? I'm going to tell my Barron Trump #DCU-related story. It's a good one.
Last summer, the #USMNT played Cuba at Audi Field. I was covering the game. I left the press box briefly pre-game because I needed a quiet spot to have a private conversation with a colleague. We walked out of the press box and stepped into an empty suite right next door.
We chatted for a good 10 minutes, and as I turned to leave I was confronted by a very large man. "What the f**k are you doing in here," he said. I was shook, and I looked up and saw, much to my dismay, a Secret Service badge.
I took a step back and stammered through a few words and showed him my credential. While I was doing so, I look over his shoulder and standing there - towering over me, really, is Barron Trump. Honestly I could've pissed my pants at this point.
Luckily for me, a staffer came and pulled me out of trouble, and I returned to my seat and covered the game as planned instead of, you know, spending the rest of my life in an offshore jail. That's my Barron Trump story.

#FCCincy's introductory presser with Brenner and Lucho Acosta is set to begin at the top of the hour. Will sit in on it and thread any notable quotes right here. #DCU
Brenner says he's thrilled at the arrival of Luciano Acosta - in particular because he's a player who has experience in MLS and who can help get him up to speed on things here.
I've asked Brenner about his impression of MLS prior to his arrival - says that he didn't watch MLS in Brazil but studied footage online before his arrival. Says he was excited about playing here. Somehow avoids saying that MLS is a "league with potential" which I love.

Wondo is for the children. Wondo forever.
Fantastic stuff there by LAFC’s Own Goal. Feels like just yesterday when the former DCU academy product debuted as DC’s leading scorer in 2013. He continues to thrive out west.
Wondo is legalized cocaine
