We do this all for you, and we hope we bring some fun. Despite it being the day before Thanksgiving, MLS teams did do some work yesterday; let's get to it. D.C. United Team Awards for 2015 Season | D.C. United: D.C. United announced their team awards for the past season, with Chris Rolfe winning MVP and Golden Boot, Bill Hamid winning best defender, and Travis Worra winning Humanitarian of the Year.

D.C. United season review: Nick DeLeon

The Black-and-Red's most dependable player is up next in our season review series. When it comes to D.C. United, there may be no more dependable player than Nick DeLeon. Bill Hamid has fought with the occasional injury, and the entire back four is prone to the occasional stinker. Fabian Espindola played barely half of the available minutes this season due to injury and suspension. Even Perry Kitchen and Chris Rolfe had stretches of 2015 where they were letting the games by without really distinguishing themselves. Dependability is a good quality for any midfielder to have. Anyone who...

Hamid first in club management vote, third overall in MLS Goalkeeper of the Year

Hamid didn't win MLS Goalkeeper of the Year, but he won one voting constituency. Bill Hamid ended up in third place for the MLS Goalkeeper of the Year race, with Luis Robles winning top honors and David Ousted coming in second. The voting was conducted by three groups and then weighted: club management, MLS players, and members of the media. Hamid actually was first in the votes of club management, but Robles took the players and the members of the media by enough of a margin to secure first place. When he was on the field, I think Bill Hamid was the best goalkeeper in MLS this year, but...

Monday Freedom Kicks: All Good(?) Things...

Recaps of the great unpleasantness, looking forward to caps, and Bond villains laughing. So, rip off the bandaid, right? Recaps of D.C. United's playoff elimination at the hands of the New York Red Bulls by us (with more from us here), MLS (with more from Pablo here), the Washington Post, Sports Illustrated. and the team quote sheet. Once A Metro has things from the Dirty Jerz.

Bill Hamid named to the U.S. men's national team roster for World Cup Qualifiers

In a rightful callup, Bill Hamid has been named to the USMNT roster for the World Cup 2018 qualifiers against St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Trinidad and Tobago. Today, Jurgen Klinsmann released his roster for the United States' first qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup. Next Friday, the USMNT will take on St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and then a week from Tuesday they will play Trinidad and Tobago. One member of D.C. United rightly made the national team for these key qualifiers: goalkeeper Bill Hamid. I am under no illusions that Hamid has a chance to start ahead of either Tim Howard...

Bill Hamid a finalist for MLS Goalkeeper of the Year

Bill Hamid is again recognized as one of MLS' best goalkeepers. For the second year in a row, Bill Hamid is a finalist for MLS Goalkeeper of the Year; we will have to wait until November 19 to see if he can join Joe Cannon, Pat Onstad, Donovan Ricketts, and his goalkeeping coach Zach Thornton as the only players who have won the award twice. His competition for the award are David Ousted of the Vancouver Whitecaps and Luis Robles of the New York Red Bulls. Ousted is probably the odds-on favorite, mostly because Hamid missed so many games due to injury this year. Hamid has the best save...

D.C. United 2-1 New England Revolution: The GIFs

In which we have some moments that mattered. In wasn't without its fun and drama, but at the end, D.C. United managed to gut out a 2-1 win over the New England Revolution that gave one team happy feelings before their two-leg series starting Sunday, while another wondered what happened. So let's look at some GIFs, shall we? The first being Juan Agudelo's golazo over Bill Hamid, which you really can't get mad at: Next is several minutes later, and Kelyn Rowe finding himself in great position, but Hamid saves it. Stick around for Rowe's expression afterward: Further...

D.C. United 2-1 New England Revolution: Player Ratings

Our first postseason foray into this, so bear with us. One could be forgiven for thinking that coming into Wednesday, that D.C. United would fight, yet ultimately drop their playoff game to the New England Revolution. But fight they did, en route to a 2-1 win on a rainy night at RFK that those who attended will remember with smiles on their faces. And with that, some subjective ratings! Bill Hamid - 9.5 I'm going to leave Matt Doyle's thoughts on Bill right here: It took what will probably be a Goal of the Postseason Winner in Juan Agudelo to beat Bill. Tell me again why Jurgen...
