What They're Saying: Freddy Adu

“I can’t believe it. It just flies, man, it flies. I was 14-15 when I came here. I’m 28 now. It’s just weird. It went fast. Now I understand [when he signed], people were like. ‘Don’t take it for granted, it goes by quick. I’m like, ‘Goes by quick? I’m only 15. I’ve got a long time.’ And then you blink and you wake up, and it’s like, ‘Oh, man.’ It does go by quick. You have to make the best of it when you can.”

-- Freddy Adu, signed to D.C. United at the age of 14 and now at 28 without playing time for 18 months, back at RFK Stadium for the festivities surrounding the stadium's final game on Sunday. (Washington Post)
