From DC United:

“D.C. United announced Audi of America will be the naming partner of the new soccer-specific stadium in Southwest D.C., now officially named Audi Field.

“We are thrilled to partner with such an incredible brand that is not only recognized in North America, but throughout the world,” Jason Levien, United Managing General Partner, said. “Audi has transcended the automobile industry and fully embraced the culture of soccer, especially in MLS. We couldn’t think of a better partner to name our stadium and we look forward to forging extraordinary memories for years to come at Audi Field.” (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

I wanted to give the Wizards a shout out here. They have been balling lately, and last night was an absolute thriller against the Cavaliers, defending world champions. The Wiz ultimately lost in overtime, breaking their streak of 17 straight home wins, but the atmosphere was electric and basketball fans around the country are starting to take notice of them being one of the top teams in the league.

The Wizards are largely overlooked in DC compared to the other three major sports teams, but if anyone is looking to join the bandwagon, now is the time. Tickets are generally cheap as long as they aren’t playing an elite team, and it’s a great escape for a few hours from everything else going on. Go Wiz.”

“Dear PoPville,

Suggestions for best bars to watch the debate next Monday?”

Ed. Note: OP has some concerns that Monday Night Football could take precedence over the debate [for the record Meridian Pint will be showing the debate with sound.] Now I like football a lot but I would not miss this debate for anything short of the Superbowl. I’m sure most bars realize this too. So, for those going out, where will you watch?
