I was coming back from work in PA today, heading north on the NJ Turnpike and stopped at a rest area to get a coffee. I ran into Jason Kreis. I was the only person to recognize him. I told him I thought he was a great coach and he says "My previous employer didn't think so." I laughed and said "Yeah, to be honest I'm a Red Bulls fan and still thought you were a great coach." He didn't skip a beat and said "I'm a Red Bulls fan now too." Great moment. Just thought I'd share with fellow fans about our new fan Jason Kreis.

What is more surprising, the fact you recognized Jason Kreis in a world of hundreds of millions, or the fact he said what he did???

When I saw the turnpike part I thought he was going to be working in a tollbooth. 


Is there any in this rout with authority to treat with me? Or indeed with wit to understand me?

Kreis deserved better from NYCFC. NYCFC is run like Metro circa 2006.
Loyal supporter of the 2013, 2015, and 2018 MLS Champions: RBNY/Metro
RBNY II aka "The Baby Bulls" are the 2016 USL Cup Champions!
Playoffs are stupid in soccer and I don't care if that hurts your feelings.

And they hire Patrick Viera to appease the euro snobs. Screw NYCFC.

I always liked Kreis, still think he could be a USMNT coach one day. He got so screwed by those fuckheads. He was clearly being told by management to play certain guys even though it was obvious to soccer people they didn't work together.

I half-expected the story to end with Jason being Tariq's barista.


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

Have him pegged for job at whichever club fires their coach first this year.

But you left out the most important piece of information, does Jason Kreis make a good cup of coffee, or not?

I feel bad for him. 2 times you never want to be coach....at the start of an expansion franchise, and immediately after a legend retires.

He got paid a ton of money (for an MLS coach). And he knew who owned the team when he signed on - firing a soccer coach too soon is the least of their transgressions. Glad he's on our side now, but I can't really feel bad for the guy.
