Is it just me or does it increasingly seem like Ricardo Clark deserves to be voted MLS player of the year?
Yeah, in case you somehow haven't heard, the not-so-mighty Minnesota Thunder finally crapped out of the U.S. Open Cup. A 5-2 thumping by the Galaxy. It was a great run, but now the season is officially over. Meaning I'll have to come up with new excuses to drink beer and scream at strangers.
But all is not lost for Minnesota soccer fans. The Indomitable Drinky Crows, after starting our current campaign 0-3-1 have inexplicably advanced to the playoff finals. We have won four straight, last Sunday thumping a team 3-0 that had previously beaten us. I even had an assist in that game--a highly unusual development. Unfortunately both of our goalkeepers will be missing for the final. This seems somewhat problematic. We're expecting a capacity crowd on Sunday for the championship match so show up early. The first 10,000 fans will receive a free slice of bologna. The 10,001 person to arrive gets to be our goalie. Kickoff is 12:30 p.m. at Fort Snelling.
