    The Night Before Crewsmas
    as told by @Hamburgler03

    Twas the night before Crewsmas, when all through the house
    Not a creature was stirring, not even a Scouse.
    The stockings were hung by the lockers with care,
    In hopes that St Lamar Hunt soon would be there.

    The supporters were nestled all snug in their beds,
    While visions of tifos danced in their heads.
    And mamma in her scarf, and I in my cap,
    Had just settled down for a late winter’s nap.

    When out on the pitch there arose such a clatter,
    I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
    Away to the window I flew like Jacob Thomas,
    Tore open the curtains and threw off the valance.

    The moon on the breast of the game day mow
    Gave the lustre of matchday to objects below.
    When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
    But a miniature bench, and eleven players.

    With a little old owner, so kindly but blunt,
    I knew in a moment it must be St. Hunt.
    More rapid than eagles his players they came,
    And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name!

    "Now O’Rouke! Now, Oduro! Now, Arrieta and Glauber!
    On Marshall! On, Speas! On Hebrew Hammer!
    To the top Higuain! To the top Tyson Wahl!
    Viana and Williams, dash away! Dash away all!"

    As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
    When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky.
    So up to the table’s top the players they flew,
    With plenty of wins, and St. Hunt too.

    And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
    The prancing and pawing of each soccer boot.
    As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
    Down the chimney St. Lamar Hunt came with a bound.

    He was dressed all in kit, from his head to his toes,
    And his clothes were all colored with Black and Gold.
    A bundle of goals he had flung on his back,
    And he looked like a peddler, just opening his pack.

    His eyes-how they twinkled! His dimples how merry!
    His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
    His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
    And the teeth when he smiled were as white as the snow.

    A rolled up program held tight in his fist,
    And an Urso lapel pin for the one who is missed.
    He had a kind face and a little round belly,
    That shook when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly!

    He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
    And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself!
    A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
    Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

    He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
    And blessed all the stockings, then turned with a jerk.
    And laying his finger aside of his nose,
    And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose!

    He sprang to his players, to his team gave a whistle,
    And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
    But I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of sight,
    "MASSIVE Crewsmas to all, and to all a good-night!"

    On a personal note, I treat games against the Metrostars with great significance. Instead of wearing a traditional black and gold scarf, I favor wearing the MLS Cup 2008 blue scarf for these special occasions. Such a sentimentalist, I confess.

    I'm very curious to see what lineup Armas fields Wednesday in CCL. They are already up 2 goals and at home. They should have a pretty clear passage through here, but I wouldn't mind some tired legs come Saturday.

    Yeah boy, theyre practically crapping their pants with glee.

    Eff those guys. They know nothing.

    I used to have a clip from an MLS preview show in 2008 where Shep Messing was the resident expert.

    When each teams turn came, the first question was "What does this team have to do to win the Cup?"

    They went through almost everybody and then came to the Crew. Mesing looked down at the desk, laughed heartily, shook his head and said "lets face it - theres just no way the Crew can win the Cup"

    Which pretty much sums up what I think of this kind of jerkoff preseason crapola.

    I thought I saw you at the tAAAilgate.

    Either way, I wouldn't do it. I've seen a LOT of people walk along 17th. You'll have plenty of company.

    I interpreted Chr1st’s remark as referring to his “‘K?” speech pattern.
    As in the CoachBot ‘K 3000.
