Get the pyro ready for this momentous occasion.
Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

What, January in Chicago isn't a draw for you?  :D

SBI's mock draft has RBNY taking Prosper Figbe, a Nigerian defender from UVA.  This pretty much guarantees that RBNY will not be taking Figbe.  Definitely a cool name, though.

Oddly enough, we had Jeff Rigby loaned up to us a few times back in 2001, although he never played with us.
I recall someone from the media asking the Metros PR team about any reference they could make to an Eleanor in one of their headings (may have been Michael Lewis or Ives).

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

Philly just traded ALL their draft picks to FCC for $150k (up to $200k if players perform) in GAM...

Time to ditch this draft. At least the "Super" part.

Incoming players should have freedom of choice in their destination anyway. Drafts are archaic and should be banished in all sports, especially in a league where players are coming in and earning mid-5 figures.

SD cannot Improve Worms impressive squad. Sixth in the East, 11th overall, first round playoff loser, USOC beaten finalist. Woo-woo!

It used to be a pretty fun event to attend, if nothing else.

I expect us to take the highest upside CB, dont think we have any right now needs that can be got in the mls draft.

The 2/4 picks are whatever I say stay away from STs or attacking mids, reality is were not getting mls level attacking talent in the draft.

My guess is cms or fullbacks maybe a goalie. Ill be flying during this but still bummed theyre entertaining even tho 90% will never do anything.

Honestly a Zieko Lewis grandstand is the best thing we can get out of the modern draft.

Ream and Tchani are prolly the last draft picks that consistently saw starting minutes for us.
