It just might be time to dust off the drums in the Bay Area; SI.com is going all in on the return of the San Jose Earthquakes being announced tomorrow. I'll stand by what I said before about holding potential owner Lew Wolff to having a stadium before he has a team, but the idea that this team will be "barnstormers" that play their "home" games at different locations around NorCal is intriguing. Having said that let it be noted that I am the first person to call into question the physical and mental effect being homeless will have on the team.
Now just for shits & giggles who do you think would be the 1st signing for the new SJ side? Should they go big and splash out for a DP like John Terry or get one of the old faves like DeRo back? And bear in mind that Landon Donovan's contract with LA will not be grandfathered in next year and there is no way on AEG's green earth that he is getting a DP slot; how crazy is it to think that he might eat a little crow and go back to the bay? Personally I think he'll make the crosstown switch to Chivas USA before going anywhere else in the U.S.
