Back around 2000, I first made my acquaintance with Metrofanatic. May have been Metrofan at the time. I dunno. My love for Clint Mathis and the USMNT led me to the Metrostars where I eventually became a fan, a STH, an occasional straggler at 16A and eventually, a journalist on the beat for 10+ years.

 

Throughout that time, I have had the privilege (and I mean that) to know this special community of fans, from the passion you bring to the Arena to the wildly insightful conversations on these very pages. In short: MF has always been the pulse of this community, and I am truly honored to have been a part of that, in whatever small way I could.

 

I am not dying. I may not even be leaving the damn soccer scene lol. But I do want to say thank you for all your support these past six years at EoS. Whether praising our work or tearing it to shreds, I have always appreciated the honesty and passion of the Red Bull fans. And its no wonder to me that RB fans have set the standard for supporting and what it means to passionately be behind your club.
 

Thank you for the time of my life.

And in case you missed it, here is my farewell address.

Jack Bell is taking over at EoS. And I ask you give him your support, as you always did with me.

Again -- this is not goodbye. It's a thank you. A long overdue and well deserved thank you at that.

 

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

 Nice shout-outs


We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.
