Soccer Overload

21 08 2008

There is just so much soccer tonight!  I’m in overload.  I thought I would maybe post about Clavijo leaving the Rapids, but quite frankly, my thought is “eh.” I’m not sure there was anyone supporting him staying; so he’s leaving. Eh.

Then there is the US MNT beating Guatemala in Guatemala in a World Cup Qualifier. Yay!

Then I was at the game watching the Dynamo wipe the floor with Chivas. I actually felt sorry for Chivas; it was that ugly. With so many injuries (I think 11 players were on the injury list), plus Klejstan out with the US, there just wasn’t much to be done. Preki only used one sub for injury purposes because frankly, there was no one on the bench. By no one, I mean no one healthy (Ante Razov was on the bench, and I don’t consider him a “no one”). If you really love the Dynamo (and who wouldn’t), or really hate Chivas (why?), then you might want to watch this game on TiVo if you missed it live.

Then there were like 80 (exaggerating, but not by much…) other World Cup qualifiers today. So I’m in OVERLOAD. A wonderful overload to be in, but overload nonetheless.





Types of Hot: Rough Hot

29 07 2008

Alright, “Rough Hot” could be interpreted many ways, and in the case of Clint Dempsey, I mean them all. Not always pristine. A little bit of temper. Very physical play on the pitch. Sometimes need a translator when he gives interviews. I imagine (unfortunately don’t KNOW) a lot of throwing around (the fun kind), not a lot of words (and those spoken a little rough), and a lot of sweat. Sigh. So while he has abandoned the MLS for Fulham in the Premier League, as a regular on the US MNT, we here at NHB could never abandon him. So thank you Clint Dempsey for exemplifying Rough Hot.
