The Line Between Fantasy and Reality
We'll get to a full debrief of the Crew-DC game debrief tomorrow, but first a quick view of how bad things are getting for Crew fans. On my way to the game, I saw a few of the Columbus faithful sporting their home colors. Certainly there could be a few McBride jerseys, or perhaps Buddle or Gaven could be worn proudly on the back of a faithful Crew fan. But folks, see what depths the Columbus fans have fallen to:
Sorry about the image quality, but yes, that's a Crew fan, in an MLS Crew jersey, wearing a "RONALDINO (sic) #10" kit. Now, I'm not an expert on fan jersey ettiquette / psychology, but I imagine that when you start hallucinating that players from your Eurpoean Champions fantasy team are playing for you local club team, then things must be bad.
At this point, Hunt Park's faithful should start wearing their Beckham #7 jerseys and "Jose +10" banners in the belief that perhaps the Adidas fantasy express will somehow send an army of undead soccer players out to save their season. That could be fun.
And just in case your were wondering, and I'm sure you weren't, but in case you were... No, he never did.
