Ridiculous

Right now in New York: 40 degrees, flood warning, wind advisory.

There is no reason that today's Red Bulls game should not be cancelled. As the league is putting its financial concerns above the safety of its players and its fans, I'm hoping that NO ONE turns out for the 3pm start at the Meadowlands. Truly shameful.

Spoken like a true NY fan. United has a lot of fans yesterday...what's up with you guys in NY?

It could be said that "us in New York" have brains in our head.

How's those Eastern standings looking today?

Thanks for taking the time to comment.

Fish: Telefutura game of the week = difficult to postpone. Full credit to those that did come out (I think the pictures don't show anyone under the roofed areas) and the team played well in a monsoon out there.

As for the Eastern Conference Standings...It's only April. Want to make a wager on what they look like come October?

Well you guys got Angel...while I hate NY I'm really looking forward to seeing him play in MLS! Really I'm finding it harder and harder to hate the Red Bulls...you guys keep signing old DCUnited players/coaches. The DP rule is certainly starting to work out.

D: You're on! I'll post a photo of myself in a DC t-shirt if you guys finish above NY this year. Will you do the same in a RB shirt?

Nick: It's hard to complain today, though news of Reyna's absence this week does give pause...

D said...

Some confidence in the Angel, eh? Fair enough. Take your pick: Atlantic Cup (since it isolates the two of our teams) or the standings as a whole?

Either situation, if you win I will wear a NYRB shirt (and that means I'd have to buy one) to a gameday gathering of DCU supporters, and make sure a photo was posted on my blog. If you win, you do the same.

woo-hoo! It's on now!

Mr. Fish said...

Let's say final season standings.

I'll buy you your NY shirt & ship it to you for your photo. I'll post on our wager in the next few days.

Fair enough. I suppose that means I'm on the hook for a DC shirt for you. Who do you want on the back? Moreno? Emilio? Boswell? Eskandarian?

Mr. Fish said...

I think a t-shirt and scarf will be sufficient. That way I won't break the bank, and your pals can have a good time ripping them off you & setting them ablaze.
