u75--you must have been sitting behind me and my buddies at the Crew-Fire US Open Cup game last year when we spent the better part of the game singing the Greatest American Hero theme song whenever Steven Lenhart touched the ball.

Actually, he popped up in tonight's game, my wife saw it, one thing led to another (not The Fixx), and here we are. Spectator is to blame for IDing him. I wasn't paying close enough attention.

Did he hear you? He's like 22, I'm sure he has no first hand experience with the show.

And now the theme song is stuck in my head.

Believer it or not, George is not home.

Goat said...

Yeah, I think our singing was lost on him.
