When NYC secedes (or is booted) from the USA, who will play for our National Team? Let's assume that previous caps for other, lesser, nations wouldn't apply. G: Bouna Condoul (Manhattan) G: Jon Busch (Queens) D: Mike Petke (LI)* D: Chris Wingert (LI)* D: Carlos Mendes (LI)* D: Chris Aloisi (LI)* M: Shalrie Joseph (Brooklyn) M: Brian Mullan (LI)* M: Edson Elcock (Brooklyn) F: Gabriel Ferrari (Queens) F: Edson Buddle (New Rochelle)** All in all, that is a depressingly poor team for the greatest city in the world. But it would still probably be good enough to qualify for the World Cup out of CONCACAF. Especially with two GKs on the field at one time. *NYC would obviously need some lebensraum so Long Island would have to be annexed. *Yes, I know New Rochelle can't be called NYC under any definition, but it's damn close and I'd rather a have an alcohol-addled never-was at striker than John Wolyniec (SI).
