Whoever made the "Welcome Clash-Quakes-1836-Dynamo" banner, good work.
That was me, with assists from Lanky on the idea, K in the creation, and JH6 and Marty in the affixation. Glad you liked it.
The original idea was to put "Cougar Mellencamp" at the end of the banner, which would have been funnier, but I ran out of space
Photos of that banner should be online shortly.
Nice one indeed. Mary and I were chuckling a bunch when we saw it.
For possible future use, something shorter that would have had the same effect (although perhaps fewer people would have gotten it) would have been to follow it with the TAFKAP symbol.
That was actually pretty gutsy of the Chronicle writer to put that one in the paper. If that whole article is a fair representation of how the Houston press is covering the Dynamo, then the move to Houston was a better idea than I thought. It's a step above what we usually get for MLS (but still not to the heights of Goff & Co.)
Holy schnikees! That's pretty cool
Well, this is the most famous I've been since the camera stopped on my face for like 20 seconds after we won MLS Cup '97
that's pretty ********in funny
I think the only times I have been famous in that way are:
* Was on the sidelines for a Redskins game at RFK and Michael Westbrook ran by me on a reverse that he took to the end zone. Camera shot from the end zone at one point was just me and Westbrook. It's debatable who went on to the better career.
* In college, was covering the MCC basketball tournament, and our press seats were on the baseline. A big 7-foot dude from U. Detroit crashed into our press table and it got on the opening for SportsCenter.
Definite kudos on that banner. I had a couple MLS match newbies who got a good laugh out of it after I explained it to them.
Things like that are part of the overall game experience, and something neither the front office or the players can bring to it. Great job.
They had a great time, by the way.
Was this the opener of like the 1995 or 1996 season? I think I remember that reverse.
I'm pretty sure it was against the Cardinals; the 27-7 score of the '95 opener rings a bell after looking it up on pro-football-reference.com.
The other Cardinal-Redskin game I went to (in '96) was notable from an historical perspective, as well, since it was the day Esiason threw for 522.
