Question: Last year, I moved across the country to be with a wonderful man. The move required me to change my career plans a bit and take a pay cut. I also now live 3,000 miles from my family. I enjoy my new city and my job. My relationship with my boyfriend is great, and I love him very much. But he is adamant about living in this region of the country, so staying with him means staying far from my family, which is inconvenient, but not necessarily a deal-breaker. My bigger issue is that sometimes I look at my boyfriend's life and think about how he gets to live in his city of choice, he gets to live near his family, he gets to pursue his first-choice job, etc. It seems like he doesn't ever have to make any compromises.

W HEN THE Union unloaded the 10th overall pick in the 2015 MLS SuperDraft to Kansas City for C.J. Sapong, a 2011 first-round pick, this was the type of result the Union had in mind. But the road to last night's result - a game-winning goal in the 69th minute of the Union's 1-0 victory over Seattle - has had plenty of traffic jams. Sapong has scored in four straight games - matching Jack McInerney's franchise-record streak from 2012 - and five in his last six. A far cry from the way the 26-year-old started his first campaign in Philadelphia.

BYRON MAXWELL sees an environment in Philadelphia like the one he experienced in Seattle, Maxwell said yesterday. He did not seem to be referencing the wet ground or the blustery skies, as Maxwell introduced himself to a new city after signing a contract billed at 6 years and $63 million, with $25 million guaranteed. "It was just an easy match, it was just a perfect fit," Maxwell said. "A lot of the things they're doing here are similar" to Seattle. "It just meshed. " Maxwell referenced the emphasis on "daily habits," Chip Kelly's "win the day" dictum.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Love them or loathe them, the rowdy Seahawks will have first dibs on the NFC title for the foreseeable future. Yes, the Seahawks who started a fight during New England's victory formation at the end of the Super Bowl. Yes, the Seahawks who took two penalties at the game's end, and led the league in penalties this season. Yes, the disrespectful, disrespected Seahawks, whose bunker mentality and persecution complex make them a dangerous cell of football fanatics.
