Eskandarian back in black?

Josh Gros' retirement may not mean that we won't get to see someone in head gear roaming the RFK field next season. BobbyBoswell.com reports that Alecko Eskandarian has been reacquired by DC United. In his last RSL blog, Alecko had mentioned that he was a free agent an renegotiating his contract.

Alecko was a fan favorite at RFK, and he was quite lethal in 2004. His production last year was terrible, in my opinion he was trying to do too much by himself when he did get the ball. The front office must be gambling that he can still be effective, particularly with Fred,Emilio, and/or Gomez, and/or Moreno around him. He's also a bit of insurance in case Moreno retires or leaves. If this is actually true, I would expect Addlery to be gone soon.

EDIT: ACCORDING TO REPORTS THIS IS JUST A FUNNY VIDEO POSTED AT BOBBYBOSWELL.COM. I THINK DC UNITED JUST LEARNED A VALUABLE LESSON THAT MANY WORK PLACES BLOCK YOUTUBE ACCESS. MEANWHILE WE HERE AT THE DCENTERS LEARNED NEVER TO TRUST KYLE SHELDON AGAIN.

Just joking Kyle. Here is the fabulous funniness for those of you able to view your tubes.

You gotta watch what you post there, guys. Just a funny video, not true story...yet.

Johnny -- Looks like you're right. I haven't seen the video yet, but given how it was broken, I'm not surprised that Oscar (and others, like Steinberg) may have actually concluded he was really, really back. Part of me doesn't like the way this was presented to the fans, although I'm sure the video is hilarious.

Yeah, it is just a funny video, which sucks. Well the video doesn't suck, just the toying with our emotions. Way to get our hopes up Kyle.

I can only offer my most sincere apologies.. but, for the record, Esky was fully up for the idea, as well.

Ack - didn't see the youtube part at all. That coupled with how I interpreted his last post on his RSL blog made me think it was legit.

He'll be wearing a big ugly bull on his jersey before he ever sets foot in RFK again.
