Taylor Twellman has hernia surgery, DC United likes land deal

New England Revolution and US international forward Taylor Twellman underwent hernia repair surgery today in Munich, Germany. Dr. Ulrike Muschaweck performed the work.

He will need 8-10 days of recovery before he can play again.

In non-surgical news, DC United is very happy with the US Congress as they past a bill that will give certain federal land to the district. One of the areas turned over to DC is Poplar Point, which is where United wants to build their soccer specific stadium.

The team's President said this of the bill:

"Passage of the Land Transfer Bill is an important step toward D.C. United staying in the District and making a major investment in the DC community. We will work with Mayor-elect Fenty, the DC Sports and Entertainment Commission, other city agencies and the people of Anacostia to finalize plans for a development anchored by United's new stadium."

Translation, first step done, but there is still a lot to do.

The bill awaits George Bush's signature.
