Washington Post with the awful news:
“United and Derby County, a second-tier English club, announced Tuesday that they have reached agreement that will allow the superstar forward to become a player and assistant coach this winter.”
From the Capitals:

I am not sure I understand why DC is not hosting the parade for the US Women’s National Soccer team. We have a great team the Washington Spirit, one of its players is on the National team. DC is the Nation’s capitol. Sponsors like Audi would help fund it. Why are we punting in this, and giving this up to NYC?”
On the other hand from Five Thirty Eight:
“A ticker-tape parade through lower Manhattan is pretty much the quintessential homecoming for American heroes. So it’s fitting that the conquering U.S. women’s soccer team — which won the World Cup on Sunday — will get its second parade in four years down New York City’s “Canyon of Heroes” on Wednesday morning. That’s an appropriate honor after one of the most dominating performances we’ve ever seen in all of sports history.”

Ed. Note: I imagine every single restaurant/bar will have it on TV for the brunch question but for the kids – anyone know if Dupont Circle will have an outdoor screen? Any other suggestions for those with kids?
We’ve been following the Women’s World Cup and would love to watch the final surrounded by fans! Does anyone have some good recommendations of kid friendly watch parties happening in DC on Sunday? The kids are preschool/elementary age and we love something with a little food so we could keep them munching throughout the game.
Any thoughts? Would love an electric atmosphere to see the women bring home a championship!”
Andrew wonders if “maybe there will be an outdoor watch party?”
Mina also asks: “Can y’all tell us where we can get brunch Sunday and watch the championship game this will be vital crucial information as the game is at 11 AM THANKS”

Speaking of fireworks, I always get lots of queries about this one as it’s starting. Good reminder from the Nationals:
“Since Nationals Park opened its gates in 2008, July 3rd fireworks have become a tradition here in the team’s Navy Yard home. Fans are invited to stay after the 6:05 p.m. game to enjoy this year’s edition of the Freedom Fireworks show!”
