We'll Admit We're Geeked


The second Showdown in Chinatown is next week. And our nipples might already be hard.

Clearly, given the above Twit from Baron Davis, last year's class clown aims to bring more skills to the Lower East Side for the sequel.

It's almost inconceivable that footie fans in NYC can catch Thierry Henry play what amounts to a pick-up soccer game (with NBA'ers) in the park. Even Henry himself doesn't seem to get how cool it is for US Americans. Here's his quote from last year:

I didn't know it was going to be like a lot of people around the Astroturf. But I guess they wanted to see Steve, Baron and the other guys there. I don't know, I think it was a great environment.
Uh, no. Think they were there to see you (and Fowler, and Kalou, and even Jozy) as much as they were to see the cagers.

It's been a good week (shitty USMNT not withstanding), so thanks for popping in. We especially want to thank everyone for chiming in on the Confederations Cup liveblogs. We're trying to bat 1.000 in covering them, although we might not get both concurrent matches over the weekend. Still, they are fun for us, so we'll try to get them all covered... Yoda be damned.

Anyway, between the rest of the tournament and the second Showdown (Wednesday—and we'll be there to cover it again), next week should be busy as well. I think I speak for all of UF when I say it's been a pretty fun month considering there hasn't been any league play*.

I disagree. You guys suck.

I would like to congratulate myself for sitting through both of the USMNT's performances this week. It took a lot of courage.

But seriously, it's been a fun week. Great work guys.

@jj3 - the great thing about the fellas behind our efforts is that when real life intrudes for 1 or 2 of us (*cough*ME*cough*), the others are there to pick up the slack.

Truly a privilege to "work" here.

jjf3 said...

glad you understood my intent, NYK!

Sorry for whatever real life intruded with, and hope it worked out well...



You guys are money...
