WASHINGTON - D.C. United fan Nathan Thomas admitted that the poor performances by D.C. United, over the past 16 games, really aren't that bad when you compare them to the last week for the United States.
"We haven't won since June," stated Thomas to The Nutmeg News. "And we've had 2 wins in the last 16 games; but honestly, my team is one of the few things that gives me peace right now. When compared to Nazis, white supremacists, and racists with guns and torches in the streets killing and injuring people standing against them and a feckless, impotent President of this country who openly supports these same Nazis and White Supremacists, I'm really not as concerned with the latest run of form by United."
Reportedly, friends state that as the events over the past week played out that Thomas' mood about D.C. United seemed to improve with him stating that he is actually excited to watch the game against the Rapids, this weekend.
"There is no escape from the maelstrom of hate that is swirling around right now, but these games give me moments of release. I just need a place to yell and scream and voice my frustrations into the world even if I am just yelling at a TV. Games have always given me that chance. I can't wait."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Thomas maintains an even keel about his soccer team, despite the results from this weekend.
