passed physical.....announcement tomorrow....rh
goff is reporting that he signed tonight at 7:30 Argentina time, i.e. about 20 minutes ago.
fantastic! really something i never expected this season.
Oh Boy.....this is going to be great....
awesome. I was just talking to a argentinian at my work(blockbuster) who was renting a movie about maradonna and i told him we were signing claudio lopez. so im glad to hear we actually signed him so i didnt look like a liar.
[size=-2]I know I have used this joke before, but I still find it amusing[/size]
This is amazing news! Thank you!!!
Hillcrest has pictures. Myers have given up 7 so Lopez can have it.
Strange, but it showed in the friday USA today under signings that the Wizards got him then...
Per Chad on Hillcrest Road, Myers will take the #3
Where can I get one of those track jackets that Onalfo is wearing in the picture with Lopez?
That's actually the heavier rain jacket. I believe we're going to have some in stock to sell in the merch department. I'll check tomorrow to verify that though.
Ya, let me know.
I was wondering what happened to the rain jacket that was in last season's catalog but never showed up at the stadium shops....I would be up for getting one as well.
Back on topic....WOOHOO! Way to go FO! Too bad they couldn't have the actual press conference here to intro both new strikers to our media. I just hope the visa paperwork goes through alot quicker for Claudio than it did for Ivan.
Yeah, it was one of those cases where we thought we were going to get that merchandise, and then when we ordered it adidas said they didn't make enough for us to actually have some for merchandising. They made enough for the team, and that's it (actually, we just got some overflow from the old team stuff that I believe will be on sale at the first game. Included was a number of the big, puffy "smurf coats." Limited supply.).
Just another example of how the new shade of blue is a huge step forward for the organization. Now we can offer a lot more of the authentic team gear at the merch stands. Last year, it simply wasn't possible because of the quantities produced by adidas. That shouldn't be an issue anymore.
But it eliminates an entire portion of the club's history!!!!1!
Got an email from Brad Porter tonight. He told me that Metro Sports will apparently be broadcasting the new conference tomorrow from Argentina at 1:25 central time. Just an FYI.
Here's Porters blog entry on it
1:25 PM with Cotton and Dave Stewart
1:30 PM from Argentina with Heineman, Vermes, Onalfo and Lopez
