It's starting and I am very, very excited

Look! You can see Buschie is excited too. I can't help it, I just got very geeked though. Tomorrow is the beginning of the the beginning. Yeah, it isn't the regular season. Yeah, Martino and Hejduk are with the Nats, and Kitamarke has yet to get his visa to join the team. And yeah, it will be mostly just a scouting session. But tomorrow YOUR Columbus Crew starts their journey towards their first MLS Cup Championship in their entire existence by scrimmaging Metrostars in Florida. We are getting closer. Opening day, April 1. Home opener, April 15. I'm getting giddy.

Your blind, shameless optimism amuses me year in and year out.

They're just preparing you for reality early.

Sigi's going to be too distracted by the prospect of eating living midwestern livestock whole to effectively coach a soccer team.

buck-a-brat nights, nico! man, that seems gross to me now.

I want to make it back to Crew Stadium one of these days to see something other than a dismal 0-0 draw against the then Dallas Burn.

scot said...

worst game ever. actually, nah the crew has played much worse. but good times at the rose and thistle afterwards.

nico said...

Good times at the Rose and Thistle indeed.

Too dang bad our dumbass city council decided to put artificial turf in at Legion or you could've seen a game in one of the most hallowed stadiums in American sport
