OK, so this isn't your momma's Ft. Lauderdale Strikers. Well, get over it. These are my Strikers; as this is my post.
I've been getting a lot of heat for touting a franchise that seemingly lasted less than a decade and fizzled out in the early eighties. But lest we not forget the glory we had when our beloved Strikers were reborn and took the APSL by storm in the late eighties and early nineties.
These were my heroes. I went to their soccer camps and I knew everyone by name, some even by nickname (Troy 'Chopper' Edwards being the best). In any case, I just wanted to give a shout to the only Striker team to ever finish on top. We will reign again. 9-9-89.
