A new soccer segment brought to you by the Unholy Union (eat your heart out Poor Spoertsman). Random musings about the progress of the blog, the team, soccer, and the world in general.
Who keeps finding this blog by searching for “Kyle Nakazawa Girlfriend”? I never once said girlfriend other than referring to this, but I still find this hysterical. And the more I post this phrase, the more that person will find the blog again. No such thing as bad publicity.
Was Kyle’s band any good? I couldn’t get out to see. Any demos / MP3′s?
Does San Jose Earthquake supporters do any chants to “You shook me all night long” ? Should we make a mocking chant for that?
Whatever happened to the North Korean goalie from last year’s World Cup, especially after that blowout? Whatever happened to that team!?
Will David Beckham have a bitching hangover from the Royal Wedding? Will he play any worse than he has? Some may argue he will play the same – poorly.
And on players we care about, will Orozco-Fiscal ever come back to us?
Will Fake Peter Nowak show his true identity? Or will he just keep pissing in the wind? Will he ever threaten me like he does Tannenwald?
Is there a conspiracy for Barcelona in every match? Or is it just a little bit of Messi, and a little bit of the hand of God? Or is it also because Ronaldo is just a little ****?
A lot has happened in the past 2 weeks that we haven’t talked about. The MLS Superdraft, the Supplemental draft, the Accidental draft, and various other rumors, talks, signatures, and visas. We can’t really put into many words what hasn’t been said already elsewhere about the Union’s draft choices (to the future and beyond!), our pickup of Mondragon and Valdes (…fix the PA system though, that bar is small but we couldn’t hear shit) and rumors about other players yet to be determined. The only words I can come up with are “Pure joy”. We’re 2 months away from the start of the season, and I want it to be here so badly. Every other day it seems the Union are making an announcement about a player or progression into the season, and it’s just taunting.
Aside from all of this, we must take a step back to look at players past after our first season. David Myrie? Well he’s apparently on the Cost Rican National Team playing for the Gold Cup. Who know?
And, for your entertainment and joy.. some footy(ball…..)
Thinking back on the season as a whole, I wondered, “what happened to David Myrie?” The answer is: nothing. His wikipedia page (I know, even David Myrie has a Wiki page), last updated August 3rd, has him listed as a free agent. Still. You mean to tell me that not one club in the WORLD has a use for a player who recently turned 22?!?! THAT’S pretty damning right there. All we’re left with is Mr. Myrie showing us, and Steve Zakuani, what Soulja Boy Tell’em was talking about.
