Washington Stars at Fun While It Lasted

Former Boston Breakers (WPS) General Manager, Andy Crossley, runs a great site called Fun While It Lasted where I love to go to see the great history and information he digs up about minor league franchises that have come and gone in the American sports landscape. I especially enjoy anytime he posts something regarding soccer teams that once played in the D.C. and Virginia area.

His latest post revisits the former Washington Stars of the American Soccer League (ASL), one of the precursors to MLS.
