Even field Negroes like to play.

Say it ain't so Eddie Pope. Please tell me you are not retiring from MLS soccer.

Well, you will be missed. You were a class act that made a believer out of this sceptic about the potential of American soccer. You personified class on and off the pitch, and MLS soccer will be losing a great ambassador.

You could have played in Europe for bigger bucks, but you stayed here and carved out a glorious career.

Not bad for a kid from a small town in North Carolina.

This N That

Well it's official, my Eagles really do stink!

That performance against Dallas in front of a national T.V. audience was disgraceful. I am now officially joining the crazed Eagle Nation mob calling for Coach Reid's big head.
Sorry, the man has got some serious problems at home (Both sons in jail) and I think it's beginning to become a distraction. In case you missed it; even the Judge in Reid's sons case dressed down the coach and his wife, calling the Reid home a literal "drug emporium" and chastising the couple for a lack of supervision.

But honestly,the Eagles have been not only bad on the field, but they have been making bad draft choices as well, (They just cut a second round draft choice) so it's over.

Speaking of over, the Sixers were over before the season even started. And did you see that their first round draft choice has been moved to the "D"league? I was screaming for them to get the kid from Florida State but they ignored me and every other fan in this city and picked Thad Young, now looked what that got us.

And since I am killing Philly teams, I might as well go for the trifecta. The Phillies refuse to even consider bidding for A-Rod, yet one of their six owners just sold his cigar company for almost three billion. Yes, you read that correctly; THREE BILLION WITH A B. But they can't come up with 30 million for A-Rod? Give me a fucking break. And we are supposed to start next season with Wes stinking Helms at third base? I don't think so.

Oh well, such is life in Philly, doomed to a life of being a second rate city, trapped between New York and Washington. And until we get some owners with some vision around here, who will stop looking at this town as if it was Mayberry RFD, we will be nothing but a bunch of mediocre losers.

Hey is T.O. still catching balls at the Link?
