Trolls stay away. Please post your favorite Earthquakes related memories here. Here are a few for me in no particular order: + Cheering for Ronald Cerritos any time he scored, entered or exited the field. "Ronald Cerritoes <drum> <drum> <drum>". He is one of my favorite through out the years. + The 2001 season, with the arrival of Frank Yallop and the improvements he made for the team. Manny Lagos, Richard Mulrooney, Ronnie Eukland, Jeff Agoos. And this young kid that just came from Germany. Clearly was immature, but it was great watching him improve and I think Frank Yallop had a great deal to do with that. + The Tampa Bay game where Landon loobed a cross perfectly on to Manny Lagos's head for a critical game winning goal. + Near the end of the 2001 regular season, we took our kids to a jungle jim place. Our son was 6 at the time. I was talking with a friend about the EQuakes game were both attended just the day before and just as we were talking Dwayne DeRosario comes walking around the corner and walks right between us. We introduce ourselves, and he was genuiely suprised to be recongnized. (This was before is famos goal in the 2001 cup). We got to meet his kids and him ours. A wonderful moment. A few weeks later Dwayne scored that wonderful goal to win the 2001 MLS cup. + Spartacus during intermissions. + Joe Cannon jumping into the Casbah sections after games to give away his gloves. + Being at the famous playoff game with LA, commonly refered to as "the meltdown". That was like the lowest-lows and highest high of an entire season during one game. + Troy Dyake's red card. + The two own goals by LA during the first LA-SJ game in 2005, that really felt like the turning point after an uncertian start to the 2005 season. + During the second LA-SJ game (2005) this year our four year-old was still an Landon Donovan fan. But after that game she said to us as were were walking home. "Daddy don't tell Landon this, but I like Mark Chung better." "why?" I asked. "Mark was running and trying really hard during the game, but Landon was just walking most of the time." (Even our 4 year old could see that Landon was mailing it in during the regular season) + The entire Earthquake 2005 regular season. It was like the movie "Major League" where the baseball team owner is trying to do everything she can to make the team lose, so she can move the team, and the team of un-likely champions get there revenge by just winning. (It was almost like that, and I unfortunally truely believe that if we have won the MLS cup would not be moving today.) + The last game at Spartan Stadium. I joined the Casbah at the end and just kept cheering for 20 minutes straight as the clean-up crew cleaned out the stadium. Brian Ching threw his jersey into the stands and was really appreciative. Then the CasBah moved to outside the lock-room. As Brian Mullan was leaving he taped several of us on the shoulder. (Guy, Nap you are great fans.) + Just entering Spartan Stadium at the beginnig of a game, anticipating what this game will bring. we will really miss the Earthquakes this summer. I'll be gone for a while. Please post your favorite Earthquake memories.
