A great run has obviously put us back on top of the table…….more importantly re-established our locker room as one of the deepest and most promising in MLS. The young boys have been stepping it up when called upon and the older guys have been performing to our potential. The overall effect is a light hearted atmosphere and growing confidence in each other.
Of course the trade is a big topic as well. Kelly has played well in the run we are on and deserves to have a chance to play every week.. It is a testament to his dedication and determination that he was traded to a team that can use him game in and game out. Kelly and I have ironically been good friends even though we have competed against each other for playing time over the past two years. I am happy for him and the opportunity that he has been given out west. Best of luck Kel…..I still hope LA doesn’t win a game all year but I hope you play well.
Lastly I want to give a shout out to everyone that has posted on the Craig Waibel thread on bigsoccer.com I have avoided the site ever since 2003 when I learned on it that I was liked about as much as a cold sore. In any case a friend of mine called me last week and told me I had to see what people were posting on it. I reluctantly went on and …….laughed harder than I have in years. I think you guys are hilarious and can only say thank you for the comedy. Enjoy the busy month of games coming up and once again….go USA! (under 20)
