We Bleed Red & Yellow

So the question presents itself as whether or not a Striker Liker should support any type of professional soccer here in South Florida.

To answer logically, once devoted-always devoted. But as a wise man once said, "You're leading about 2 things, Jack and Shit. And from the looks of things, Jack is long gone."

What we're getting at is we know there is about no chance in the immediate future that the Ft. Lauderdale Strikers will be resurrected. There will be no more Lockhart Stadium. And the days of George Best and Gerd Muller are long gone.

But we are still believers. Now, when teams pop up in Miami or in Palm Beach it scratches at us like an ugly blister. But that's the problem, isn't it? Support in South Florida is fickle and hard to even come by. This area isn't as small as some make it out to be.

If a team were to play at Dolphin Stadium under a different name, we'd be there though. But only as Striker Likers.
