    Is there anyone on the waiver wire that it would be worthwhile for the fire to take a look at?

    Alfonso Loera (Chivas USA)
    Ryan Suarez (Chivas USA)
    Eugene Sepuya (Colorado Rapids)
    Mamadou Diallo (MetroStars)
    Gilberto Flores (MetroStars)
    Cassio (New England Revolution)
    Felix Brillant (New England Revolution)
    Noah Palmer (Real Salt Lake)
    Marlon Rojas (Real Salt Lake)

    The names that stick out for me are Cassio and Marlon Rojas.

    Not that Cassio would be much help the team but it would be kind of interesting to have two Brazilian midfielders on any team in MLS to see what they can do. I'm pretty shocked the Revs released him.

    And Rojas could be another defensive piece since that seems to be the Fire's weakness right now.

    Of course, I'm not even sure the Fire have any international spots left right now so this could all be a moot point.

    How many Brazillians did we have on our team when we did the double?

    I have to admit ignorance on this one since I was living in Detroit and following the Revs when we did the double. Or is this a trick question?

    I think we're beyond the point that being Brazillian is enough to earn you a roster spot. ("Zero" is the answer to my smart-ass question.)

    And a Czechoslovakian that spoke Polish. He spoke Polish with a Czech accent, though.

    Peter Nowak taught Jesse Marsch just enough Polish to swear and get his face slapped at Jedynkas.

    So it's like half the team spoke Polish.

    True enough. But Cassio's not bad - he earned his spot for more than just being a Brazilian. The Revolution midfield is just extremely good and so there was no room for him. Like I said, the Fire don't need him since our midfield is steady too but you can never have too many pieces to play around with. Especially since he's left footed.

    A Polish nightclub on Belmont. Lots of not-quite-old-enough-to-drink scantily (or skankily) clad Polish girls. Play a lot of that Euro-techno-pop crap.

    I stay away. Old age is a b!tch.

    Too bad what we really need are some RIGHT footed players. ;)

    Yeah, that was pretty much a non-news story that MLSnet is really jumping on. :) Lalas really is trying to get the MetroStars to be the most hated team in MLS though.

    Well, it's Lalas, crazy hair, rock band Lalas. Anything he can do to draw attention to "his team" (read: himself), he will...
