Another passion

Congratulations are in order for a couple of DC United players. First congratulations to Troy Perkins for the Goaltender of the year award and Bobby Boswell for the Defender of the Year.

DCSC and I was able to make it to DC United's game against the Metropukes. DC United played like ass most of the game, but was able to come out of it with a favorable result. A 16 yr old scored a goal during this game, but his name was not Freddy Adu. Josmer Altidore the Metropukes striker looks pretty impressive. Adu looks like a 16 yr old, Altidore does not. He is a physically larger player, Adu looks like the same kid that he was when he arrived in DC. Unless Adu has a growth spurt and adds more strength, Altidore may become the future of US soccer.

Speaking about soccer, I came across a bit of the news of the weird. What if you started your first job. You are still a teenager and a bit of a party animal. What would you do if your employer told you that you need to settle down and get married? This is not a hypothetical, it is a true story. Bulgarian soccer club Litex Lovech ordered Ivelin Popov to get married within the year. This to curtain his violent behavior and womanizing ways. Does anyone in their right mind actually believe marriage will drastically alter his behavior?

Ha! I've been a naughty boy.

Raw deal for the GF/potential wife. She gets someone who is fixated on soccer (as opposed to being fixated on chasing skirts), with a bit of a temper and travels a good portion of the time. Humph.
