    Dario told me a story that in 1999, he was injured but they didn't have enough guys on the bench for April 30th, 1999. He had an groin strain he sustained earlier in the week, and he wasn't supposed to play, so headed for the shoot out, he was subbed in for Caleb Porter with 33 seconds left to use him in the shootout, and in 33 seconds he got hit in the nuts with the ball, and it hurt so bad he had to piss in side the old Spartan Stadium Dugout before the shootout started, and his groin hurt so bad because it was pulled, he barely could dribble the ball causing him to trip over his feet in the shootout, which worked out because Matt Jordan tackled and took him down forcing a red card, causing him to piss himself again, Jason Kreis went into goal to face the PK shot he took, and he scored and they won the game. When he got to the locker room he said he had part of the MLS logo on the ball bruised into his abdomen.

    On the game tape (I'll make clips later) for a brief few seconds you can see him standing in the corner of the dugout when the camera is panning to the benches pissing LOL

    Another embarrassing moment not so much to the public,

    Travis Mulraine (Jimmy Conrad) also told the same story a long time ago on social media, told me a story that every practice, Joe Silvera's wife would bring everyone box juices and sliced fruit and they'd have a snack break half way through the practice.

    And gives you a least some reason why we sucked so much ass in 2000.

    The same way the Quakes won with 9 men in Toronto one year.

    I had almost managed to forget the Mike Magee shut out and then you bring it up again. Cease and desist!

    Ramiro Corrales towel incident? Please remind me.

    You forgot to include the Bernardez/Gordon simultaneous shoe change.

    More 'That's so San Jose' moments

    Oscar Draguicevich gets a red card from the bench against the Galaxy game 3 of the 96 playoffs. Laurie Calloway attempts to fight him on the side and had to be separated by 2 coaches and Tom Liner.

    Pretty sure it was here. I think I've managed to miss just about every incredible comeback win the Quakes have had: 2003 against the Gals, 2013 at Stanford, the 9-men Toronto game. Maybe I should stop going to games?

    I was at the Quakes-KC game at Spartan in 2003 which the Quakes won on an LD golden goal, and I was at the 2017 last minute playoff clinching win with the Urena goal, and I was at the 2012(?) LAG game at Stanford where the Quakes came back to win, with Wondo saluting the troops, and Beckham trying to fight Q.

    I was there. So was the San Jose mayor. After Dawkins scored he actually got interested in the game. :)

    What's it going to take to convince Fisher that the status quo is unacceptable?

    You know, I never cared for Ramiro Corrales style of play when he was playing but looking back, I think we could use a player like him on today's version of the club.

    Tommy Thompson, Preston Judd, Tanner Beason, Will Yarbrough, Benji Kikanovic, Jack Skahan, Willy Richmond, Carlos Gruezo, Jackson Yueill arent good enough as a collective unit. Theyre the bludgeon of mediocrity and below in MLS acceptable in 2012 not 2024.

    Wednesday 6/19 2:25pm and he is still the coach.

    Maybe they will wait until the day after the league cup Galaxy game on 7/31.

    I assume they will be 2 and out in league cup.

    I don’t think that in my professional career I ever had a sinecure as secure as Luchi…
