    Sweet god, what is this guy's deal? If he was payed for this, the front office better demand their money back. In case anyone was wondering, I painstakingly transcribed the song's complicated and meaningful lyrics after listening to this masterpiece over and over. "MPF! METROSTARS! MPF! METROSTARS! PLAYOFF FEVER!!!"













    (In all honesty, its probably better than "the night starts with sambaaaa!")

    It's so bad they already pulled the link down- but not the page:

    http://www.metrostars.com/audio/MPF_METALMIKE.mp3

    Enjoy. I wonder how much the commission was to do this, and how much more publicity this could have bought and been generated for the USOC final instead of this silly MP3.

    In the words of Samir Nainanaja from "Office Space": "Yes, this is horrible, this idea." (or something to that extent)

    Metal Mike sounds like a good idea that went terribly, terribly wrong.

    LOL!!!!!!! Oh my God, that was the most bizarre, funniest yet saddest thing I've ever heard.

    Why did they record him on the toilet having a tough time?

    The single most embarassing marketing idea conceivable. Idiots. Absolute idiots.

    MPF - WTF???

    When this whole thing goes away, and it is looking like sooner than later, we can point to some many reasons why. They should be tarred and feathered - along with that g.d. turkey - and tortured for what they have cost us: a flagship franchise of the world's greatest sport in the world's greatest city.

    Oh wait, the truly GREAT idea that will save the franchise and the league: build a stadium in a town no one cares to visit. Brilliant, just brilliant, the whole lot.

    Giants Stadium can work for soccer. That has been proven from the Cosmos to the ManUre tour. But marketing was the key.

    Please excuse that digression, but I see this stupid Metal Mike thing as yet another symptom of an incurable disease.

    WHO ON EARTH WOULD WANT TO GO SEE A SOCCER MATCH BECAUSE OF SOME STUPID HEAVY METAL PHOTO AND SONG????? WHO ON EARTH WOULD BUY SEASON TICKETS BECAUSE OF A FREE F-ING TURKEY?????

    Anyone remember how embarrassing those golden arches scarves were? This makes that playoff absurdity look clever.

    That Metal Mike thing makes me not only want to stay home, but to maybe not even watch on TV. I am so incredibly sick of this franchise, which I've not only followed, but given thousands of my dollars toward. It is getting harder and harder to justify the expenditure given the poor quality of the franchise (I don't mean players, I mean the organization).

    One moron doesn't commit to a marketing campaign like that. It takes a committee, or at least someone's okay, but beyond that, institutionalized incompetence.

    I'm sick of their incompetence. I'm angered at what they've done to the promise of an Empire Soccer Club. They've turned it into the Spinal Tap of sport.

    how could any1 possibly think this was a good idea?
    it just blows my mind that there r people putting effort and money into this and noone ever realized that its the worst idea in the history of the world. and even as i say that it doesnt feel like an exagerration.
    no1 would EVER be attracted by this...not soccerfans, not parents, not little kids, not metal heads, not even the Undertaker.
    marketing that appeals to noone. MPF is the single greatest demonstration of incompetence ever.

    It gets better. According to this link, Metal Mike claims to have coined the term "Heavy Metal":

    http://www.trouserpress.com/entry_90s.php?a=metal_mike

    That was two years after the historical moment when he invented, from whole cloth, the high five and the phrase, "dig it".

    A big, hearty lol.

    Right, I have two of them myself (wife won't claim hers is hers!), but one too many comments about my McDonald's scarf have kept it confined to the home Metro collection.
