There's no place like home, and make no mistake about it: D.C. United's players do love playing in front of their frenzied faithful.
By the time Blake Brettschneider found out he would be kicking off his professional soccer career with D.C. United, the University of South Carolina product had endured waiting through five rounds and 75 picks over the course of two separate drafts.
Exhibition games don't really count for much - not like league games. But these friendly games are sometimes a chance for a rookie player to show off his skills and make some memories.
"We worked so well and played hard throughout the game except for a few lapses," Brettschneider said. "We had a lot of chances especially in the second period."
"Joe [Ngwenya] worked hard to get the ball and passed to me," Brettschneider said. "I got there first and took the opportunity. It was my first goal for the club, and I hope more will come."
