This is what I get out of tonight's match... We had the better of the match, though given our collective impotency within 30 yards of the Chicago goal, I'm not sure that's worth much. Clint Mathis and Richie Williams: If you don't play another match for the Metrostars, and go off into your respective sunsets, I won't care not a bit. You've both done your part in the past, but it's over. It's over. Eddie Gaven: He's 16 years old. He pretty much showed it tonight. Then again..wow...he's only 16 years old. The future is bright. Repeat: Clint, it's over. Your passing sucks. Your aggression is gone. You had one crappy shot. You don't take on anyone. Go to Europe. Go to another MLS side. I really don't care anymore. You were my favorite Metro, and I'll always have some affinity for you, but you're all finished up here. I thought I heard the GS crowd booing you off the field, and after talking to someone who was at the match, I heard correctly. Steve Jolley, Eddie Pope. You are both true giants. I hope you are both with us till the end of your careers. Happy birthday, feliz cumpleanos, sto lat, Steve. F*#*#*# you, Ante Razov. Not for anything in this game, I just like to squeeze that in whenever I can. ESC: thank you all, guys n' gals, for bringing it when us around the country and around the world getting plastered couldn't, but more importantly when the Metro Front Office (yeah, you guys reading this thread, you know who you are) couldn't be bothered to promote this 'Mickey Mouse tournament', as some Jersey Guy called it. We lost tonight, but lets keep this momentum going.
