Soccer – The Most Important of Life’s Unimportant Things

LIFE WITH A CHELSEA FAN

So, I check my cellphone after my soccer game yesterday, and I see that Cid has called me. Well, I had just talked to her right before the time indicated on the missed call screen, so I figured something must be up. Like the dutiful husband I am, I immedately call her.

“OH MY GOD, DAVID, YOU WON’T BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED!”

Immediately, images of family tragedy, death, destruction and mayhem flash through my brain, and I mentally begin to prepare myself for bad news.

“JOHN TERRY GOT KNOCKED OUT DURING THE CUP FINAL AND THEY HAD TO CARRY HIM OFF ON A STRETCHER! IT WAS TERRIBLE!”

Relief floods through my system as I realize the house hasn’t burned down and none of the children has lost a limb in a terrible bicycle accident or anything.

“Okay, don’t tell me anymore, I want to watch it when I get home”.

“Okay, I won’t say anything else, but I thought you needed to know”.

I love that woman.

FISH GOTTA SWIM . . .

Carlos Ruiz is upbeat, positive, in shape, and thriving in training camp under the watchful eye of Steve Morrow.

All that is enough to make my heart soar like a hawk, but check out this quote on MLSnet.com:

We have a long season ahead of us with the Lamar Hunt (U.S. Open) Cup, which we want to win in his memory . . .

That positively gives me chills. Don’t be surprised to see el Pescadito wearing the captain’s armband this year. Simo is no longer with the team, and SM will be looking for someone with fire and enthusiasm to wear it. My guess is Carlos, or perhaps that other fine Latin American player Ricardo Mulrooney, or (and this is my choice) my main man DarĂ­o Sala.

THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY: 4 FEBRUARY 2007

THE GOOD:
FC Dallas has started training camp! Opening day is closing in on us. Gracias a Dios. Speaking of the greatest team on earth (well, the Metroplex, anyway), they held a 40-player combine last week, trying to rustle up some otherwise neglected talent. Great idea, and great execution of the combine. This is a new deal for the team, and is a huge leap in professionalism and scouting. Also, GM Michael Hitchcock has taken it upon himself to start an FC Dallas Blog. Unlike a lot of teams, which would just fill it with PR department crap, Hitch and Coach Morrow actually pack the blog full of inside information and juicy tidbits that a hardcore soccernerd like myself just can’t get enough of. Bravo, gentlemen.

THE BAD:
Oguchi Onyewu was robbed, ROBBED I tell you, of a debut goal for Newcastle by none other than ol’ Charlie Blackmouth, his USMNT buddy. I saw the replay, and let me tell you, Gooch was only about three yards away from Carlos, and he drilled that ball right into his breadbasket. I’m guessing Bocanegra woke up Sunday with a little “swoosh” shaped welt on the inside of his thigh. Serves him right.

THE UGLY:
I heard there was some big football game on Sunday night, so I turned on CBS. Imagine my horror when I saw the players running around in spacesuits with some crazy pointy ball, and using their HANDS for cryin’ out loud. I wasn’t absolutely sure I wasn’t having a nightmare, because in the middle of it all I saw Prince playing guitar in the middle of the field, singing “Purple Rain”, and it was actually, like, in the rain. I need a vacation; I’m startin’ to lose it.
