Jerseys? Can We Get a Peek?

So Hotshot is going around town promoting the Strikers in an adidas branded Striker jersey. Is this a sign to come? If so, I've just died and gone to heaven. Order me the entire team set.

But on a serious tip, when do we see uniforms, warm ups, etc? It's time to start the build up.

The Strikers are back! (please drop the Miami FC part)

Schedule Unleashed

Well, it's out there, the 2011 Striker Schedule. Read a few posts back and I would have never believed this day would come. But what's the deal with the Miami FC/Strikers name? Are we not going all in and making it the Fort Lauderdale Strikers? The Miami FC/Strikers is retarded, pardon the euphemism, I could call it something worse.

In any case, it's pro soccer and it's right here in our back yard. Unfortunately, there is no 9/9 scheduled affair. 9/9 marks the anniversary of the Strikers lone championship victory back in 1989. That weekend the Strikers will be on their way to Edmonton. So party at the Hard Rock to celebrate on Friday night? Who's with me.

Here's the full schedule, all home games to be played at Lockhart Stadium:

The MLS Returns to South Florida!

The MLS Preseason that is. DC United, with new coach Ben Olsen, will be the first MLS team this year to come to the sunny confines of South Florida.

From February 1-12, the Stars from the Nation's Capital will begin their training in Fort Lauderdale, FL, to erase last season's forgettable string of performances and dead last finish.

Wait a minute, I just had a dream: who needs a new MLS team? Maybe DC can move down here. That would combine my two favorite things; soccer and Volkswagen.

Just Too Much NY Cosmos Talk

I don't want to hear it anymore. I don't care who bought the New York Cosmos and how good friends they are with David Beckham. I don't care about Pele and Eric Cantona. I don't care. I don't care. I just don't care.

If the MLS adds a second New York City team, whether it be the Cosmos or not, all it means is that we should should create our own professional league and be done with it. Oh wait, that's what the NASL is.
